The Many Sacrifices of Looking Cute...

I only have two seconds to tell you this... but it is so blogworthy I have to get it up here...

I have been upgrading the kitchen. New floating hardwood floors, new drywall ceiling... MANY pictures to come and even a video if my new Flip arrives this afternoon...

Anyway, yesterday I had to get dressed to really go out- you know, NOT in the sweats and sweatshirt I've been wearing for days as I do manual labor. I threw on black slacks and a grey cable knit sweater and yes, this next bit of information is important... I also threw on a pair of black thongs. (No! Not the European nickname for flip flops... thongs in regards to Victoria Secret thongs. )




Feeling a bit uncomfortable I forged through my event. Thongs and all. Until we stopped at Target after ballet and of course K-girl had to go to the bathroom. (Please realize how unsure I am of how to phrase the rest of what I want to say in order to get to my point as this all relates to my underwear!!!)

I too decided to use the bathroom since we were there and out of the corner of my eye... something caught my attention. A tag. Not just any tag. The tag on my thong. Oh yes, the tag on my underwear that was oddly... sideways.

Why you ask? I did too. And then it hit me. In the middle of Target's occupied bathroom I screamed, "NO I DID NOT!!!"

But the truth is- I most certainly did. In an effort to dress in NON sweats to go out in public. In an effort to minimize panty lines and look cute. In an effort to quickly throw on a nice outfit- I put my underwear on SIDEWAYS???

It's no wonder I was UNCOMFORTABLE

Ya know back when I could wear a thong I did the same thing! To Funny!

For some reason there is nothing written here except "No I did not!" However, because I have subscribed to your blog in Google reader I can read your post there and am laughing at the thought of you making this discovery. I think thongs looks uncomfortable under the best of circumstances - this sounds rather miserable!

Michele said...

Too funny. I hate thongs and simply can't wear them. I'm proud of you for trying!

Chrissy said...

LOL! That would have been horrible! But I stand behind the good ol' thongs! Love them! Did you know they sell maternity ones? And I mean they have for that past 8 years at least!I've never done the sideways thing, inside out...yes...but not sideways! LOL!

Rebekah said...

LOLOL, at least it wasnt obvious to the rest of the world, or you didn't put them on backwards.

Michelle said...

Oh Chele,
You always keep me laughing!

At least they werent on the out side of your pants!

I've done inside out before, but never sideways... what a funny discover! I give you credit for wearing them to begin with... two things bother me, wet shorts over a bathing suit and underwear up my tush! Better luck next time.

Beth said...

I have never known how people wear thongs. I have always found them to be so uncomfortable.

What a hoot! I can't believe you were able to wear them all morning sideways!

Joanne said...

Only you Chelle, only you!

I must give a thumbs up to thongs myself..and then admit that if I saw my derriere in them I would not be able to stop the gag reflex. I wear them because my bum is so jiggly that if I wear regular panties, I don't only have the panty line issue...

I end up with four butt cheeks.

Sorry, probably more info than you needed, huh? I hope you weren't eating.

Love, Joanne

That is a hoot!!! I thought you were going to tell us the tag was hanging on the outside of your slacks, but sideways thongs... now that is funny!!!!

I don't know you but found your blog through my friend Mari. I was checking out your blog and came upon this hilarious story. It was a shock to you but what about your girl in the bathroom? Kids can say the darndest things too.
You made me chuckle today. WE have all done something similar to that one day at least in our lives if not more. LOL
