be warned, I'm in a mood

Today I put on my underwear correctly, not inside out. While putting on my underwear inside out is not a normal problem, with the particular pair I'm wearing today, it is. They are stripy on the inside and the out and in the mornings, pre-coffee, I'm not much interested in examining my underwear to see if I'm putting them on properly. I'm much more concerned with not falling over when I lift one leg to put on the underwear. That, in itself, is quite the challenge.

Yet somehow this morning I managed to put on my double sided, stripy underwear correctly. I honestly think this is the first time I've accomplished this since I purchased the pair almost a year ago. I'm pretty darn proud of myself for finally putting them on correctly, although it's not the kind of thing you can boast to your coworkers about. The internet, yes. Coworkers, no.

And while we're on the subject can we eliminate the word 'panties' from our collected vocabulary. Too harsh? Okay, lets eliminate it from everyone over age 6's vocabulary. It's just too froufrou of a word for an adult to use. And it's also not a sexy word, and I would really like it if Victoria's Secret would stop telling me about their panty deals. I wear underwear, not panties and I also call a penis a penis, not a ding-dong or winkle.

Come on people, be adults with me.


  1. I HATE the word panties! Every time someone says it, I laugh. Especially if they are grown or nearly grown men. Then it's even funnier.

    PANTIES have Disney Princesses on them.
    UNDERWEAR is what anyone over the age of 12 wears.

  2. Now I know I'm on the wrong side of the gender gap on this one, but am I the only one that thinks that Victoria Secret's use of "Panty" as the singular form of "Panties" sound odd?

    Pants (plural) are to Pants (singular) as Panties (plural) are to Panties (singular), no?

    That said, as the one who does the laundry around here, it's all girl clothes.

  3. I am in total agreement with you, Chris. Panties are a single pair or a stack of 20.

  4. Hey,
    I love what you'e doing!
    Don't ever change and best of luck.
