Lederhosen and Irish Setters

I ordered some Red Wing Irish Setter Boots on the recommendation of a friend. Wanting to break them in, I slapped them on (under a pair of thin ski boot socks) and returned to the desk. Later, said compadre texted me asking what I was up to. I responded as such…

Lederhosen and Irish Setters

“In my work boots”

I was immediately told to “put on some pants”. And then threatened with a Facebook post of said pic. I think Facebook is for those who need constant self-affirmation, like Jack Handey. Considering how seriously people embrace their social media personas, I tend to gravitate towards the precise opposite. In other words, giving less than a shit. Measurably less.

In fact, if you are female, between the ages of 25 and 40 – not less than 5′ 4″ or more than roughly 120 pounds – and own a high-capacity digital SLR…come on over with a bottle of Macallan 57 Year Old Lalique and a pink tutu. I would be more than happy to pose for you, Lederhosen and all. And you can post the pics across the interwebspheres to your heart’s desire.

A noteworthy pre-emptive strike. But, at the end of day, you’re still wearing hunting boots with knee-high socks. Gonna take a whole bottle of McCallan to overlook that…

On the other hand, I guess your readership should be relieved that the photo is cropped as is.

1) the photo is not cropped. asshole.

2) can a guy try to get something other than tools with mountain-man burly beards into his place of business even if the reasoning is moderately surreptitious?

Haha…btw, I love that the banner ad above this post is for an online store called “Oktoberfest Haus.” The “Gretchen” costume seems like a steal at $42.99, given the contents.

Ads blocked from here in the interest of fair dealing, so I took to search. Indeed the Gretchen costume is a head-turner, lederhosen or not. I’m hereby revising the modeling offer – the photographer can skip the $25,000 bottle of scotch if they show in that getup.
