There's No Such Thing as Scotchtoberfest

In observation of Wear a Kilt to Work Day (what, it wasn't on your calendar?), I wore a kilt to work today. I did this for several reasons, like to celebrate my non-existent Scottish heritage, to raise money for charity, and in the hopes that I might get a free bottle of whisky (nope). Mostly, though, I saw it as a day when I wouldn't have to worry about finding a clean pair of pants to wear.

Aside from gaining enormous respect for anyone who has to use a bathroom while wearing a skirt, I did learn one useful piece of information: part of the whole kilt ensemble is a little knife that you hide in your sock. Just something to keep in mind the next time you're tempted to laugh at a man wearing a kilt.
