Ever worn your panties inside out?
It’s not one of those things you typically notice until you’re sitting in a compromising position and it’s just not a good time (or place) to turn those puppies around. Not that you’d necessarily want to if you’ve had them on for an hour or more, ya know?
Thankfully, I was wearing a pair of Victoria’s Secret panties that have little to no seam – which meant that there was no visible seam showing through my pants. So I left them alone.
Yeah, a bit too much information right there. I know.
But that’s not all – it morphed into a panties rant.
Later in the day, I was putting away the laundry and realized that my panties drawer was nearly full before I put the freshly laundered panties away. When I dressed that morning, I had noticed that I was down to my last favorite panties in the drawer. So why is that danged drawer nearly full?
Ah, a stack of panties that I rarely or never wear!
What the heck?! Why on earth do I have a stack of panties that I will likely never wear?
A panties shortage?
Truly, how many spares do I really need?
So I assessed. I keep a stack of panties around that I cannot stand to wear – ya know, the creepers and the muffin tops, and the holy (oops, holey) ones that are still functional. Is it for security? So that I’ll never open the panties drawer and find NO PANTIES!?
Moving right along on that thought path, what’s an appropriate way to handle unwanted panties? They’re certainly not something I would choose at a Goodwill or any other secondhand/thrift shop.
Recycle them? Into what? A pillow? Hmmm… that just seems sort of creepy. Just sayin’.
I guess they go into the trash – but now we’ve circled back around to the most likely reason that they’ve laid claim to important dresser real estate: I can’t make myself throw them away if they still have some USE.
Time to put on my big girl panties and deal with it!
PS – That confession will come back to haunt me from anyone I’ve ever given organization advice. Shhhhhh! Don’t tell!
