“Oh c’mon,” she said, “just take what’s essential.”

    who takes more shirts than pairs of underwear? hippy.

  2. What is that, some sort of koan? “who takes more shirts than underwear, grasshopper?”
    Seems like a trick question. I mean, does a hippy like you even wear underwear?

  3. K@ says:

    not if I can avoid it, but when travelling, shirts can be rotated and worn for days on end, whereas when you finally shower, you NEED clean undies (or no undies with your (if you’re lucky, clean) trousers) but can get away with a rotated shirt.
    if a hippy in the woods wears all underthings, shaves, and puts on deoderants, is s/he still a hippy?
