QUESTION NO. 1
Why would anyone wear thong underwear?
BACKGROUND/HISTORY OF THE QUESTION
In keeping with my post yesterday (Dec. 17) regarding my Involuntary Theft from Target, which included thong undies, I took the "taste test." I had bought some time ago, inadvertently, undies that I didn't realize were thong, and never wore them, but they still graced my underwear drawer because of the pretty burgundy lace I couldn't bear to part with.
Deciding that I could not really condemn thongs and their particular attributes, until I actually tried, wearing them, I wore them to work today, bringing along an extra pair in case I couldn't stand it - a nice pair of comfy, stretchy "hipsters" that, um, cover the entire "parts," but still low-cut enough to wear with today's fashionable women's low-cut pants (in the 70s they were called "hip-huggers").
I COULDN'T STAND IT!! I had to change them. I threw them away, burgundy lace and all, never to be seen or worn again (unless someone takes them out of the trash in the ladies' restroom, I sure as hell hope not, I stashed them in a plastic bag first so they couldn't be seen).
I can't imagine what it would have felt like if I'd worn the ones that were too big, as extra material would have had to be stuck up my, er, crack.
No wonder girls are so cranky these days.
QUESTION NO. 2
Now that the manufacturers' of "feminine hygiene" products have brought out an entire line of thong pads designed to be worn only with thong undies, will the underwear industry be forced into continued manufacture of thong undies, and by doing so, continue to force the kotex/pad industry into manufacturing thong pads, thereby creating a merry-go-round effect that will never end?
Dear Lord, I hope not.
