Ah, the public.

I'd love to do Vietcong, Napoleonic (dunno what, probably French) as well as RevWar Brit - but I'm broke enough. xD
It's good being the "bad guy". :P

You know you're a reenactor when you participate in reenacting events.
Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.

You know you're a reenactor when you tell your sister her $350 purse is a stupid waste of money while wearing $1000 of dirty wool.

You know you're a reenactor when you think that the people who come out and take pictures of you wearing wool in 90 degree weather are the crazy ones.

You know you're a reenactor when you hate it when women talk about the color of their skirt while you and your buddies get into shouting matches about what is the right shade of feldgrau.

You know you're a reenactor when your idea of an "impulse buy" is a Dirty Billy hat.

You know you're a reenactor when the only run-ins you've had with the authorities are with park rangers after-hours.

You know you're a reenactor when you can strip down your rifle blindfolded but microwave meal instructions need to be read more than once.

You know you're a reenactor when the girl you likes birthday is 4 days away and you realize you've spent all your money on reenactment gear.
