I don’t know what it is, but there is some sort of wizardry at work when a man wears a kilt.
Out of the blue you become a people magnet. Young and old come up to you giving you kudos and how much they love seeing you in your kilt.
You graciously thank them.
You spy a few women talking in whispers and they whip out their cell phones and it appears that they are taking pictures of you.
You look at them and they giggle. Then they walk up and tell you how handsome you are in your kilt and then scurry off giggling again.
This seems to happen to me all the time, not that I am complaining.
I don my kilt and all of a sudden, I become RAY… THE SCOTTISH TEXAN!
The kilt is almost like Superman’s cape. Thing is that just because you have a kilt on does not mean you have to superhero powers of flight, x-ray vision, super strength, or all the other things that Superman can do.
The one superpower that kilts bestow is the power of self-confidence. One just seems to walk with a bit more pep in their step as well as stand a wee bit taller.
OH… and for some reason people seem to flock to you. They want to help you and even at times give you free stuff.
Is people-magnet a superpower? I am not sure but that is one thing that the kilt does, it draws people to you. So, if you are a kilt wearer / kiltie, there is no being shy, men, women, young and old just seem to flock to you.
It was funny, I was in a liquor store the other day in the scotch section and a guy walks up and starts asking me what is a good scotch and such. Now, I do know my scotch whiskey, but it was funny that the guy just came up and thought I was some scotch know it all or something.
Why? Because of the kilt. That is the only reason that I can think of.
I was in Kroger’s in the meat section and this older woman came up to me as was asking my opinion on some rib-eye steaks. I didn’t have any Kroger’s badge or anything like that, but I guess she thought I knew about steak.
Yep… kilt power.
OH… and walk into a pub with your kilt on. All of a sudden you are the center of attention and you got folks you have never met buying you a round of drinks.
It is amazing at what a piece of fabric wrapped around your waist can do.
I am reminded of this old Jim Croce song…
you don’t tug on superman’s cape
you don’t spit into the wind
you don’t pull the mask of the old lone ranger…
AND… you don’t mess around with that guy in a kilt.
Ok… it does not quiet rhyme, but you get the idea.
Now, just because you have a kilt on does not give you permission to jumping off the roof of your house; thinking it will inflate like a parachute and you glide gently to the ground.
You will be sadly disappointed for sure and also have some bumps and bruises to remind you how dumb an idea that was.
Dawn that kilt and see what hidden superpowers you may have.
Do me a favor and share any superpower kilt story you may have, I would love to hear how you are bestowed with the power of the kilt when you wear it.
