Deuteronomy 22:5

All I said was,

Would you ever consider wearing trousers instead of skirts? They'd keep you cosy and warm.

And she said,

I dinnae want tae weer troosers.

Later she said,

C'meer. I want tae tell you something.

And I said,

What do you want to tell me?

And she said,

It says in the bible, somewheer, that a man shouldnae weer weemin's clothes nor a woman weer men's clothes for it is an abomination unto the Lord.

And I said,

That's a load of hooey.

And she narrows her eyes and says,

D'ye think so?

And I say,

It says a lot of stuff in the bible I'd pay no heed to and neither do you.

And she says,

Oh?

And I say,

Well you eat bacon and you didn't have Bert circumcised. And when did you last make a sacrifice at the temple?

She says,

I'll hae to hear what Mr Uprichard has to say about it.

And I say,

Ask him if he'd like us to bring a goat over for him to sacrifice?

You might want to point out that nobody wore trousers in the bible. As far as we know, anyway. The decision that trousers carried a "men only" label was made many years later.

I printed her out some articles on that topic (complete with Bible refs) for her to peruse at her leisure. She's a stubborn old stick but as bright as a button and enjoys the debate. BTW I only put it on my blog when (I think) I've won. She gets the beter of me more often than not.

Ronni - sounds like it could be good!

Grannymar - Pearlie continues to fight the good fight.
