i do own a lava-lava. its a sheet thin material. in a tropical color, that is sewn together. and you wear it like a towel. you roll the waist down. its a traditional type of clothing for one of the small islands. a friend sent me one.. iv worn it on really hot days. mail lady gave me a wtf look. heh. iv not been brave enough to wear it o the grocery store. but i probably should not be. since most women just show up in what they woke up in ( if its a weekend, or early morning anyhow).. so i doubt they judge me for wearing a sheet, err i mean a lava-lava. chris.
