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.
