A day at the park - Larping anyone?

Photo source
Anyone familiar with LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) or see the movie Role Models?

While Mr. J and I were at the park today with family, my brother spotted some LARPers in full costume, just down from where we sat.  My brother immediately did the 'Trac, Trac' and motions his head.  'Look, LARPers', knowing I'd know what he meant.

Who knew that our cousin, who was there with us, was a LARPer of sorts.  How would you ever expect that?  He was immediately offended like we were making fun of it.  Once my brother explained what it was, he was a bit placated and said oh, well then he did something completely different.  Oh you mean like fencing we said.  He says, yah exactly...except we wear the lace.

Oh oh.

Me: The lace?

Him: Yah (all indignant, like of course the lace), you know like the 17th century?  And then like a throwdown of sorts says to my brother, 'I'd like to see you in the lace'.

My brother: Ummmm okay.

Silence.  Crickets.

My brother: Oh well, that's cool too.

All in all a great day at the park and a reference I'll be able to use with my brother for years to come.  Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! I'll be back in the next day or two with a haul post.
