Q: How many kiteflying garments do you own?

A: Only one specifically oriented to kite festivals. I wear it sporadically in a kind of personal, in-your-face mood: an ankle-length bright red nylon cowboy-style flared horseback slicker. I’d wear it on the field, but it is also great for passing quickly through that moment when your host is trying to identify you as “the kiteflier” arriving at the airport, ensuring immediate recognition. I put it on just before deplaning, not wanting to cause undue concern for the crew or stewardesses as a too-strange passenger.
