Amusing, Yet Bizarre

I was walking from the library to the bus stop carrying my fencing gear bag when I passed a trio of undergraduate boys. I think they were pleasantly schnozzled, and I do believe that I want the name of their bartender. You see, they mistook me for a boy. "Hey, bro," they said pleasantly, "you gotta guitar there?" It wasn't until they were right next to me that one of them noticed and said, "Yo, he's a girl!"

Now, there are 28-year-old women in the world who could easily pass for 20-year-old boys. I, however, am not one of them. Admittedly, it was dark, I had my hair pulled back, and I was wearing a denim jacket, knickers, work boots, and a cloth cap. The knickers aren't obscenely tight, but they do tend to. . . emphasize certain aspects of the female form. And you'd think that the breasts, the hips, and the purse would give it away.

Apparently, you'd be wrong. I so need to find out what those boys were drinking and get me some.

Indeed!

They had to be blind drunk! Especially as you are apparently describing a form that is certainly not boyish!

Bet it goes with long or longish hair, too, pulled back or no, right?

Not a boyish form in the slightest. And, yes, long hair. Braided in a single queue in back for fencing, but long hair.

I know that there are several bars in the direction whence they came, and I want to know which one they'd been hitting!

ROFL. Indeed. It sounds like they had to be COMPLETELY toasted, roasted and otherwise blotto!

Knickers??

I take it you're British?

"Knickers" in this sense referring not to flimsy silken undergarments but to the knee-length pants that are the lower half of a fencing kit. I don't know what British fencers call theirs. Traditionally white, but mine are a sort of pinkish color due to having been through too many delicate laundry cycles with two red rayon skirts.

Irish.

Ah. That makes sense. I had a rather... interesting... image in my head there for a while.

Those guys clearly need to get out more if they've reached college and aren't sure of the differences between guys and girls! I'd keep well away from that bar if I were you...;-)

Pink knickers--even ones for fencing--and they thought you were a boy? You're right, that was one heck of a bar they were at!
