I sometimes get frustrated with the somewhat revealing fashions of today. While I’m no ultra- prude who insists that skirts touch the floor and turtlenecks be worn in the heat of summer, I do get a bit flustered with the amount of skin that parades before the world’s eyes even on brief trip to the department store.
In fact, I think I know who two of the biggest culprits are. I’ve penned a short message to each of them here below. Anyone else relate?
Please keeps your “Secrets” to yourself.
I do not like seeing your pretty clothing, meant to be underthings, parading around as outer-things. Oh and with certain parts of a girl’s (or woman’s) anatomy hanging or dangling out.
Thank you very much.
And Dear Joe—Yes, you Mr. Boxer,
That goes for you too.
How fun to live in a day and age where your manly underpants come in so many colorful styles and patterns!
I enjoy looking at them when shopping for my boys’ clothing needs.
I do not enjoy looking at them when I am standing behind you in line at Target…..
Granny, whose hearing may be going but whose eyesight is just fine. (Good thing we have her heart pills with us)
So…..both of you……could you cover up please? It would make this mama very happy. Why you’d even be my heroes. Yep, “Joe and Vicky for prom king and queen”, I’d say. Right now I say ” Quit showin’ your skivvies already!”
