Spotted in a Post Office in the Midwest

Maybe this average Midwesterner (read: overweight, middle-aged, white male) has some Sámi blood in him? Stranger things have happened. Because of the stigma of being Sámi among the dominant cultures in Scandinavia, many immigrants left the labels at the border and never told their children of their heritage.

In any case, this gentleman has gravitated toward the beautiful Sámi colors nonetheless, and I, for one, approve!

The colors are attractive, yes. I wonder what others thought, though, if they observed you photographing this?!

This uncomfortable situation and the method in overcoming it was why the yarnharlot coined the term "kinnearing."
