He was pushing a baby in a stroller. Just the two of them out enjoying some midday sun and fresh air.
He wore a striped polo shirt, a pair of sensible white athletic shoes, a pair of denim.... capris.
Yes, they were definitely capris - not just mere highwaters - landing at just the perfect capri spot at lower-calf. He wore ankle socks.
It occurred to me then that I had never seen a man wearing capris. It occurred to me then that I was turned off by a man wearing capris.
I pondered this. No, not the man wearing the capris. I pondered my reaction to it. (Well, okay, maybe I did ponder this man a little...) What was so off-putting? I pondered his "ability" to have actually fathered that baby he was strollering around.
Just a piece of clothing.
After all, I've noticed that I CAN like a man in a skirt.
But I don't know if even Brad Pitt can make capris work.
