Semper ubi sub ubi

It may be quiet here at the Barn for the next couple days, as I will be away at the wedding this weekend.

I am reminded, as always, in reading all your lovely comments about my boredom how many warm, big-hearted women are out there, including that cheeky monkey Soper, albeit for her impertinence, I must gently hurl a chunk of haggis at her snottery head. She has a cold, so maybe ducking will help loosen the phlegm.

In return for your kindness, I may, upon my return, share with you an insight into that age old question. Namely, what does a Scotsman wear under his kilt? Of course, I already know the answer, but want to make sure on behalf of my readers that my knowledge is up-to-date and completely accurate. Perfect timing, as many men wear kilts as formal wear, for example, at a wedding. And E. will be donning his on Saturday.

This will give me an opportunity to conduct all the necessary investigations- strictly in the name of research, you understand. I'll let you know what I find out.

Hey, YOU'RE a cheeky monkey. Just for that, I am Dogbert and you are Dilbert today:

I'm going to GUESS and say nothing. But what happens if he falls? Or the wind blows? I'm assuming that men don't worry about stuff like that...just a guess.

Have fun finding out...

I've thought about buying my Scottish-American husband a kilt, just so I could do my own research, because I've always wanted to know the answer to that question ;)

Have fun at the wedding.

First of all, I am the Cheeky Monkey--my email is "czikimonkey," and you pronounce it "cheeky monkey." So there.

Second of all, I love the word "snotterly." LOVE IT. In fact, I might embroider it on a napkin and frame it for my wall.

While you're at it, could you find out what the function of that little bag-thingy they wear over their...bits is?
One suspects, but would like to have confirmation.

It's called a "sporran", which I think is Gaelic for "purse" or "pouch". They are motsly decorative, and don't hold much, just a bit of room for gubbins like chewing gum, spare change, condoms (not that we have any need for THOSE in this house!)
