National Underwear Day

Really, today is National Underwear Day. I heard it on the radio. Of course it was started by some company and I'm not linking to it here. But I did want to tell a story about underwear.

At the gym changing/shower room, you sometimes turn a corner and get a surprise. Or sit on a bench to tie shoes, look up, and get a surprise. The other day I was doing the latter, and looked up and there in my face was a bum with black underwear on that had a peek through slit with two or three bows to keep it shut - so I could see the crack smiling vertically at me. I just laughed to myself, and wondered about the person who would wear a pair like that to work. Why not? Why?

So what's your favorite style of underwear?

I still have Borat's mankini in my head from the post over on YJKOBT. That image added to this is NOT good.

As for my preference? It depends on my mood...

I do not get hung up on surface appearances. It is what is on the inside that counts.

WNG, I guess I am glad I haven't seen the Borat movie... But I have a feeling I saw something similar live and in person in Brazil.
Laura, I guess they were comfortable!
MRT - you are competing with Gyuss for 'answer most becoming a gentleman'.

I have a pair like you describe and love their cheekiness. As to a favourite style - I love them all! And why don't we have a National Underwear Day over here?! I could be its patron saint.

God, I think I know that pair of underwear. I saw it at Victoria's Secret and found it utterly disturbing. Anyway, funny that it is underwear day, as the pair I am wearing are old and decrepit and I am tossing them at the end of the day.

Boxers most of the time.
Boxer briefs when working out.

I hate "the surprise" in the locker room. I try to tie my shoes and sit up at the same time now.

LOL Dang that I missed it!

NoRegrets said...

Suzanne, good thing you're giving them one last gasp...
Heather - let her know!
Evile- most of the time the surprise is not so bad, but sometimes -oooooh boy.
Mel, it's never too late for underwear day.

Did m. robert mean what was inside the panties or inside the person?

NoRegrets said...

WNG - LOL! You are very observant - we shall see if MRT clarifies...
