I'm too ADHD to stay on one time period/culture at the same time.
Hence my current duel preoccupations with the early history of England
and with the roaring 20's. >>>
It is kinda difficult to combine those two historic periods, but maybe
for some people it doesn't matter. Here is a story from the SCA-
stories3-msg file in the SCA_STORIES section in the Florilegium:
Subject: Confusing the Mundanes (was Tweaking. . .)

My favorite story has got to be the time I was flying out of the
Houston airport in full Elizabethan garb. I was checking out the books
in the airport gift shop, rounded a corner and confronted the
salesclerk. She dropped her jaw, picked it up and asked ". . .uh,
aren't those the kind of clothes they wore back in the, uh, 1920s?"
As an aside, Don Tivar was the SCA's first White Scarf, and for a long
time the Society Rapier Marshal and the agent behind much of the
rapier combat in the Society.
