Have you seen what THEY are wearing now?

"Men want the same thing from their underwear that they want from women: a little bit of support, and a little bit of freedom." ~ Jerry Seinfeld

"This morning when I put on my underwear I could hear the fruit-of-the-loom guys laughing at me." ~ Rodney Dangerfield

"I don't believe in the after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear. "
~ Woody Allen


Soft, pink satin,
Baby blue with lace.
Underwear, underwear every place.

Hot red silk
Plain white cotton
Underwear here even I had forgotten.

Black and slinky,
Is that a thong?
Underwear like that almost seems wrong.

Blue with Purple polka dots
Roses scattered over lime.
Underwear like that could never, ever be mine!

Good Wednesday to All of you! Today's poem is called underwear. When I was writing this poem I wondered what My Grandmas would think if they walked through The local stores and saw all the frilly lacy TINY TINY Tiny items called underwear.

The first thong I ever saw got left by a visitor in our home and I thought it was some weird new hair thing. I was about to try it in my own hair when one of the kids yelled out that it was panties.

I remember standing there with My hand on my hip and this tiny lacy green stringy thing hanging on one finger saying~ " You expect me to believe that this here is Drawers?" " No Mama, " she replied, "not Drawers, it's a thong." First of all I was trying to figure out how this tiny scrap of lace covered any body's butt, and secondly how did my child that I had worked so hard to protect, know about these things called thongs.

Women used to wear long drawers that came slap down to their ankles. Even after they became smaller they only had a choice of one or two colors and the underwear covered your whole butt.

Men had a choice too. Boxers or briefs. Then came bikini panties and many more colors. Now you can get barely there underwear and any color imagined.

Women and Men can also get the bikinis and the hipsters and yes they even make thongs for men.. I pray that no Man I knows wears them and if they too, Please don't ever tell me..

I was looking for some underwear myself a few weeks ago and had to go into that section. There were two young girls there with Pants that swung low on their hips and their String was pulled up around their waist. I knew then they were wearing a thong. I was glad though to see the back of theirs.. for you see, Now If I ever decide to buy me one of those tiny little lace scraps.. I will know how to put it on.

This world has changed very quickly. Not just the underwear but everything. I know what My Grandmas would think. They would call the drawers scandalous. They would say people have no morals. I have been here for the changes and even I find some of them overwhelming.

Revisit your youth today. Was there something you wanted but your parents thought was shameful? I'm sure there was. Did you get it anyway. Do you still have it? Was it worth it?
Have a great Day!

My momma would have called it all trash. BUT...all the different styles,colors,shapes & sizes! That is what makes getting dressed fun!It is not just your everyday granny panties anymore!

Oh Patsy! I was so glad to see this blog today. Since this weekend and our "shower" planning get together I have been looking around trying to find some of the items you talked about.I saw the thongs and G-stings and decided to try some of those thongs on. But, I have a problem that maybe you can help me with. Which part goes in the front? I have tried it both ways and neither way is very comfortable. Please help soon!

Sunshine~ I bet Mama would also say that getting dressed isn't supposed to be fun..Lol.. I would be scared to wear those things.. suppose you got in a wreck or something? LOl.. Grandma always said we must wear clean drawers in case we got in an accident..

Bigtime~ Oh Lord I have created a monster.. You know you can't wear them things. I was told that the skinniest string goes in the back and that if they don't hurt a little then you don't have them on right. Now I ask you.. do you purposly want your drawers to hurt even a little bit? Other than that I can't help you.. I still think they would look good twisted up in my long hair as a pony tail holder!

Have a great day..

Well, you probably did have a little to do with this monster. I have been a closet monster for years now.

Thanks for the help. I had the thing on backwards. I had the string in the front and the "G" in the back. Either way, I got stuff hanging out! I better go back to boxer briefs.

I had to fight to get my ears pierced. What would my mom (now 85) think/do if she saw my tattoo? *lol*
