Hot Asian Box
Recently someone asked me the following series of questions after having seen a photo of me in a lobster hat:
So why do you wear lobster hats? I know, you just do. You enjoy it. But can you remember when it seemed to make sense? What got you started? Or maybe you just never stopped playing dress up?
Hmm. I suppose this is an activity worthy of a little navel gazing. The underlying reason is that I'm not great at initial chit chat with strangers at parties and things, and a decoration on myself is always a good conversation piece. Also, I used to hang out with a group of heterosexual men who constantly tried to one up each other with more and more outrageous outfits. I don't see those boys from Boston too often anymore, but the competition stays with me. The simple answer is that it's just clean still-being-a-kid fun.
