    WTF - what is my wife thinking?

    We are getting ready to go to Williamsburg, VA for a long weekend away. My wife has decided (and made the reservation) that it would be a good idea for the 3 of us (our son + us) to rent and wear colonial clothing for the first day of the trip. If you are wondering who the idiots walking around in colonial clothing are - it's us. Nothing says fun in 85 degree weather like wool clothing - right.....

    Sometimes I wonder what she is thinking.....

    Could be worse...you could be going to Sea World. Think of the ridiculous fish costumes that would require

    As a multi-period reenactor, I cringe to think of the possibilities that await you. You might get lucky though. Period correct fabrics actually breath surprisingly well.

    My best friend runs the costume department at nearby Jamestown / Yorktown. He has been a historical tailor for something close to 20 years and is one of the best in the business.

    I spent the past weekend sleeping in trenches while wearing a doughboy uniform.

    You will be one of the people we were laughing at when we were there last year. I think it is a great idea for kids, we saw a bunch of kids wearing the clothes and they looked like they were having lots of fun. I'll also bet you'll be constantly asked for directions to the nearest restroom. Enjoy, it really is a neat place.

    Just give them really complicated directions to whereever strikes your fancy. Chances are they will assume they made a mistake following your directions. Otherwise they will complain to management about poorly trained employees.

    The other option is to tell them the nearest restroom is closed due to an incident of explosive diarieha and they will have to go to the restroom that is farthest away. Laugh as they walk funny trying not to wee themselves.

    Cycling clothing is worn for a specific purpose. That cannot be said about colonial era dork wear which has no purpose.

    I agree, I was just trying to make him feel better.

    My original response was "Just say no", until I read yours.

    I wish you'd have given me more notice. I would have loved to fly in so that I could point and laugh.

    What did you and your son do to your wife to deserve this punishment?
