Too True Tuesday

One of my blog buddies, Essie, has a blog idea called Too True Tuesday where you admit something embarrassing that you don’t mind people knowing. I chickened out last week, but seem to have an "I don't care" attitude today, so here goes...

I have never been into fashion and prefer soft, comfortable clothes. Years ago I had done laundry in the evening, but forgot to put my clothes in the dryer. On the next morning I realized what I had done and ran down to put the clothes in the dryer while I showered and got ready for work. (Yes, back in the day I worked!) I went down to grab my clothes and they were still damp, but I had to run. I got to work, parked and rushed into the office, flapping my clothes trying to get that last bit of benefit from air drying. I went into the office, worked until lunch and left to grab something 'cause I did not have time to pack lunch that morning.

As I walked to my car, I saw in the distance something crumpled on the ground. Getting closer I saw that it was red, black and white and then stopped dead in my tracks as I recognized my very favorite, red, black and white zebra striped panties laying in the middle of the parking lot. They must have hitched a ride on or in my damp clothes and decided to lay 10 feet from my car to wait for my return. I matter-of-factly scooped them up and stuffed them in my brief case. Every time I folded or wore them I laughed and called them my "run-away panties."

Epilogue

I have since had to throw those panties away as the elastic had given its all. I thought I would shed a tear when I put them in the trash, but instead I had one good final laugh.

Love it!! I would have photographed the panties that dared to run away!

Be blessed.

LMAO you are way more brave than me!
I had picked up Genea from the bus stop with Teena, and had grabbed some random clothes out of the dryer to go. Walking back to our house, I saw something on the ground I hadn't noticed on the way there, it was little girl undies. With Tinkerbell on them. Well with my neighbor and her kid walking in the same street, no way was I going to pick them up. The girls were like, what's that? And I was like, hmmm dunno, walk faster.

Ahhh! Too funny! I have had a sock or two hanging out of my pant leg in the past but no panties yet!
