WARNING: THIS POST COULD BE CONSIDERED ADULT CONTENT! Do not read if you could be easily embarassed or offended by the word PENIS. Or GREEN. ***** Yesterday, we spent the afternoon at the Renaissance Faire. We met fairies and saw the Queen and met an enchanted statue and watch many groups of singers and learned about pounding steal and about using an abacus and lots of other things. One thing caught my eye and has me truly scratching my head. There was an area set aside for fighting and we saw some cool battles- knights in various types of armor, kids checking out foam weapons. And fencing. Fencing is a really cool sport- I've always been intrigued by it but have to admit to not knowing a lot about it. For example, I know the sword thing is called a foil. And I know they were cages on their heads. And I know there is a lot of tradition and you get points for certain moves or hits. Beyond that, I know nothing. Most of all, I don't know why you would need to sew a green cloth, cotton stuffed penis to your outfit. Any ideas or info on THAT one?
