Back in the old west women were modest, but now things have really turned to the opposite side. You just aren't hip if you panties and bra don't match, and of course that old adage, never go out without having on clean panties, is still a rule of thumb. You never know when you might be in an accident...or fall as I recently did. I'm changing several times a day, just in case.
Don't the women in the picture to the right look comfy? Well, remember the ladies often wore bustles and hoop skirts. Yuk. I can't imagine wearing those these days since I trip on air. You know, they didn't have hip replacements back then. I'd be in big trouble. I don't walk well with a cane let alone an aid fashioned from a tree branch.
But on with the post and the reason I choose this topic:
things you wish you could take back.
I was reminded NOT of something I'd said, but
something that was said TO me.
I can laugh about it now, but at the time,
it wasn't all that funny. :)
I'd worked with a woman for years,
discussing her recent shopping trip and
all the year-end bargains she'd found.
While discussing her purchases, the topic turned
to the panties she bought.
Her dialog went something like this:
"I bought the same panties I've been
getting for years. Same size as always,
and I got them home, took a shower and
put on a pair. I was shocked, absolutely shocked.
I checked the label twice to make sure
they were my size, but although the tag said they were, they hung on me. They were huge.
The legs gapped, the seat sagged, and the waistband was evidently made to fit
someone obese. I should have held them up before I bought them. I certainly would
have noticed something wrong, because I don't think I've ever seen anything soooo big in my life."
Without blinking an eye, she turned to me.
"Do you think you could wear them?"
Although I was taken aback by her comment, I came up with a pretty smart answer.
"Well, if I can't, I can probably cover my car with them."
The sad ending to the story: They fit!!! Note to readers: They weren't
the size of those shown in the picture, just described in that fashion.
