Ya Dinnae have to wear a kilt to do manly things in a skirt!!!!

Post by Epiceneguy »

So when I got home from work I decided to crack on with a little DIY around the house (fitting a new door to the kitchen), without really thinking too much about it I just got on with it, it was only when I was half way through I thought about what a good picture it would be for those who don't think you can be manly wearing a skirt (for the record I usually change into a skirt for the drive home from work).
Thought you guys may enjoy it!

(and yes r.m.anderson (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=501) it's a slip again, lol)

Something you heard on Radio 4?
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.

Hi Epicene Guy
The easiest way for a non-Doric Scots speaker is to say as you see.
I speak a diluted version because I am a native Aberdonian but there are still a lot of speakers from the rural and fishing communities further north
would leave me standing.
There are also a lot of words in it that would be very easily understood by a speaker of the Scandinavian languages. Ironically much more so than a native Scots Gaelic speaker.
Ay fine claiking wi ye 'n hae a Gweed Eel, lang mae yer lum rick in 2021 as weel!
