Just doing my civic duty, sir

Sunday I went to the house of the 3rd Maine’s civilian coordinator. She lent me clothes for a reenactment this Saturday. The reenactment will be a work day, so no hoop. I already had a corset, so Mrs. Lawson sold me a pair of open front drawers for four bucks, and lent me a chemise, a petticoat, a dress, an apron, and a hat. I had stockings and boots from Fiddler.

So. Monday I got desperately stir crazy and felt that if I didn’t do something drastic I would go mad. Therefore I put on all my things and walked to Hannaford to buy something for lunch. This involved walking down Main St., which was interesting, but only one person recognized me. I was a little self-conscious of course, but I┬ájust held my head high and pretended there wasn’t anything odd about me. It was worth it I suppose, if only for the minimal amount of confidence it afforded me.
