Explanations: black clothing

So I was hanging out, and of course when that happens, you have to be prepared for things like the local kid looking at you quizzically and demanding to know why you're wearing black when you know full well that the largely-white cat is going to get white hair aaaaallll over you.

Leaving aside for the moment the fact that I wasn't thinking about the cat when I got dressed in the morning, I went for an explanation that was more global, and more topical to small boys, one that didn't include complex explanations of the gothic fashion sensibility.

"I like it. It's good for hiding in dark places ... like a ninja!"

This developed into a discussion of how to hide one's glow-in-the-dark-pale skin.

Ahhh, kids.
