    Default How Is It For You?

    Before the jeans revolution of the 1960s it was quite rare to see a woman wearing trousers, except maybe as slacks for a party.
    A lady once told me during WW2 that you could easily detect a spy, dressed up as a woman in a skirt. You just sat them down and then threw them a ball. If their knees snapped together it was obviously a man. A woman would spread her skirt to catch the ball.
    I have noticed that if I drop something while I am working, even though I wear an apron, my knees snap together. How is it for you? Dennis.

    Knees together (not that they've got a long way to go)
    But then I never did get on with skirts

    Knees together, but rarely seem to be quick enough to catch tiny objects and frequently end up crawling around the floor!!

    I seem to recall the original of this gender sorting exercise was written by Mark Twain (Tom Sawyer I think).

    Given the relative position of pin and "chest", I wonder if it's really legs that need to clench to catch wayward objects!

    George, the lady in question was the farmer's wife in Wales, who took me in as a London evacuee during the bombing. I never saw her read a book, but maybe she had read Mark Twain at school.
    As for your suggestion, Joe, the mind boggles. Dennis.

    Knees together. When I was thinner everything just fell through anyway!

    Knees together. We seem to have a lot of ladies who wear trousers.
