I heard a brief snippet of bagpipes on the news
this morning - New York City’s Emerald Society
Pipes and Drums Company was playing. I’ve
always felt strangely moved by bagpipes. I
can see how they would spur someone on to
battle, build one’s courage.
I also find bagpipers in kilts strangely
attractive. Well,anyone in a kilt really.
And of course, firefighters are universally
attractive because they are usually nice guys
and they save people. Look at this guy - dirty,
sooty, slobbery - but still attractive.
All of the above led me to the conclusion that
a fireman who is also a bagpiper must be close
to the perfect man.
