    Floating gauze

    I like running on my grass when it is freshly mowed.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I don't know if the outfit is necessarily important. I would argue that that I would run on the grass in any outfit.

    Including your birthday suit? No, I would argue that makes floating gauze (see 'renaissance painting' 101) strategically located all the more important. A few well placed cherubim and seraphim can also do wonders to spiff up one's front lawn.
