Gonna Get Me A Kilt

Guys, I saw a trailer for a TV show on Starz the other day, and it stayed on my mind. It felt fun and exciting and looked like life. (Something that feels a bit foreign to those of us who have been locked up in our rooms like the girl from Tangled (yes, that is a Nurse Morgan reference from The Mindy Project).

In this trailer, these two rugged men look like they are trying new things and look blissfully clueless. They grab bikes and ride them down little paths, jump off waterfalls, they do little dances and run with wild animals. I am missing when I would chase Bunny in the cow pastures, and the cows would gang up on us and start the stampede. Vibes. One of the closing scenes of this trailer includes the two men in kilts, sitting on the ground against a large vehicle drinking out of a flask. Listen, I don’t drink; not my thing, but I couldn’t help but ask myself, when was the last time I just sat on the ground and chilled. Like for real. In this new, indoor digital world where no one knows the true color of my lipstick because Zoom and the lighting distort it, we aren’t livin’.

This video made me want to go on an adventure. I mean, here these men who know nothing are on this road trip of a lifetime, to explore, learn new things and make memories. But isn’t that what life is? Aren’t we clueless? Aren’t we on a trip of a lifetime? We are here to learn new things and make memories.

Where can you find me, you ask? Probably in a kilt, sitting on the ground somewhere. Given the travel restrictions, sigh, a skirt will have to do. I have plenty of those, though. *searches kilt on Amazon*

“Listen– are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?” Mary Oliver

Ideas on how to feel more alive in the comments, please.

  1. This looks delightful! I’ll have to check it out . . . As far as feeling alive, watching my sweet Bailey romp in the snow is doing it for me!
