My unmentionables have legs, I swear. I first noticed this years ago, when my boys attended a home daycare. The sitter called and asked where my oldest child’s medicine was.
I waited as she dug through the diaper bag. I heard a quiet pause and then, “Ummm, why is there black underwear in the diaper bag?” Huh? And then, “PLEASE tell me they are clean!”
Some might say my undies got stuck on some baby clothes in the dryer. But I know the truth. Those suckers marched out of my drawer and straight in to the diaper bag. The great escape, panty style.
The next incident occurred years later. I was in the kitchen taking my son’s PE clothes out of his backpack for the wash. As I pulled out the jumble of sweats and socks yet another pair of (you guessed it) black panties toppled from his backpack to the floor.
“David! What is my black underwear doing in your backpack!” The reply? “MOM! WHAT IS YOUR BLACK UNDERWEAR DOING IN MY SWEAT PANTS?!”
Oh my POOR BOY. He had gone to school only to have my undies drop out of the bottom of his sweat pants. In the middle of class.
Today they were on the move again. Only this time they were Ocean Pacific turquoise and black boy shorts. While driving to work I found them sticking out of my pants pocket. I’m not sure what they planned to do once I got to work, but I assume it would not have been good.
Does your clothing travel?
