Rachel + Skirts + The Windy City

Comments (6)

The skirt I wore today has been hiding a terrible secret. Don't be fooled by its cute, innocent nature. It may be pure cotton, but it is not pure goodness.

It pains me to tell you this, but ... my skirt is a wind slut.

Yes, it's true. I walked outside today fully expecting the boys to whistle and the girls to scowl as I pranced about in a rather decent outfit I pulled together two minutes before leaving. Instead, the wind whistled, and I scowled. Up went my skirt in a fit of glee, full of life and love and air. The wind winked and flirted, and my skirt broke up with gravity then and there. Such unruly behavior has not been seen since the days of Marilyn Monroe.

That being said, I would like to apologize to anyone who may have seen me outdoors today — any neighbors awake at 8:45am this morning, any tweenage children who attend the middle school next door to the church, any church members who were near the building at 9am or 5pm or 8pm, and any fellow patrons of T.G.I.Friday's tonight. Normally, I try to keep the Rachel and the skirts together, seeing as that's worked very well for me in the past (offline and online). I am so very sorry on behalf of my coy and fickle skirt. There will be punishment, and it will involve a hot iron. Maybe even a sewing needle or ten.

It could be only that I didn't actually witness these events that I fail terribly to see exactly how any of this is a problem.

Somehow, though, I feel that my opinion would not be at all different had I been present.

This is of course, from the viewpoint of an outside observer. :)

Gonna have to agree with Jace... what is the problem, here?

Jace of Fuse! and Tez - I don't even know what to say to you two. I just want to shake my head and sigh. Perhaps I'll roll my eyes and mutter, "Boys..." I do need to keep some modesty about me, both as a young lady and as a church employee. Right? Right.

I'm envisioning a Monroe-esque sort of skirt-flip going on here. If this is the case, that's quite a skirt.

However, I'm going to have to fess up, and go ahead and fess up for both JaceFuse and Tez that none of us has the ability to really understand the issue at hand, here.

In any event, God save that skirt from the Skirtsian retribution which surely awaits.

"the wind whistled, and I scowled" + "windslut" = great post

At least it wasn't a kilt... Right?
