I actually got to go out on a “date” today with hubster! Yay!
He wanted to just go to Fry’s Electronics, but he sensed my disgruntlement at being neglected (even Mama noticed I was being neglected, ha) and agreed to visit NorthPark, the architecturally significant Dallas landmark.
The people-watching was the fun part.
Did you know that Stella McCartney has put out a set of Day-of-the-Week panties that retails for . . . $100?!
Wow! Even if I had been inclined . . . I shouldn’t.
For those not in the know, these are panties with the day of the week embroidered somewhere . . . usually across the tuchis. Classy, right? And for the forgetful, a boon, because you could look down and be reminded of what day it is.
But $100 seems steep.
Why, when we were kids, we used to get those same drawers at Wackers Five-and-Ten discount store for $2.95! Embroidered across the hindy and everything!
But it would be TOO horrible to be wearing those when you (a) fell off the curb and your skirt flew up over your head so everyone could see, or (b) had to go to the hospital and everyone saw that you were wearing Tuesday on a Friday and therefore were obviously a dirty slob who never changed her drawers. The calendar-on-the-crotch, hmm. And some sets had no Sunday. “Because of God,” according to “When Harry Met Sally.”
So we’ll stick with the gaily colored Lollipops and JMS in the package from Wal-Mart. Well, except for a few of Victoria’s less scratchy Secrets.
