Maxi hazards - マキシの難

Ankle-length skirts are nice - smart and elegant; but I am disinclined to wear them unless absolutely wanted.  The reasons are three.  First, the hem tends to sweep the ground and gets drenched when there is a puddle.  Second, if I am not careful, I trip on the hem going up and down the stairs and getting on and off a bus, though it makes a graceful figure to pull it up with fingertips to lift the hem.  Then, third, I cannot stand to get the skirt fold down on the stall floor when I sit down in a public toilet. Another reason why I wear miniskirts habitually, aside from those I had already written elsewhere — My Mini Habit.

足首まである長いスカートは綺麗、スマートだし優雅、でもあたしは、どうしてもという時以外、あまり履く気がしないの。理由は三つ。先ず第一に、裾が地面を掃き払うし、水溜りがあればびしょびしょになる事。第二に、褄を取ればいい姿ですけど、バスの乗り降り、階段のの上り下りの際にうっかりすると裾につまずく事。そして第三、公衆のトイレに入って座る時、汚い床にスカートを重ね落とすのがとても嫌な事。あたしのミニスカ常用の、既に My Mini Habit で述べた理由に加えて、もう一つの理由。
