....which is why she gave me some really nice long-johns for my cold days at work.
Actually, they are too nice to be called long-"johns" - kinda silky-satiny. So I call them long-"janes"..
Really silky. And I'm really not used to silky. I'm a "100% cotton" kind of gal. Besides, I don't think they make Granny-panties in 'silky'.
But herein lies the problem - because I'm not used to the silky - they feel really, well, kinda nice.
Kinda "girly". Kinda young. And to wear them under my jeans - so soft and comfortable - well, it's like having a secret. Like "Hey, I'm wearing my silky-pajammies under my jeans" kind of thing. So I really, really like them...
Actually broke into the song sung by "Rizzo" in Grease....the one about Sandra Dee...where she says, "take you filthy paws off my silky drawers..."
But back to the problem. We have a really high bed. So to sit on the edge to put on one's socks take a certain amount of ...balancing.
Seems cotton on your bottom "grabs" while silk... slithers.....and slides...right off the edge of the bed I go.
Kerplunk. All #*&%$* pounds of me. On the floor. The wood floor.
I guess I thought it was some sort of positioning problem, because I got up and tried again...
Off I slide....again....
Sounded a bit like a sonic boom.
The pups were startled. I was startled. My mother-in-law who lives downstairs was startled.
Bless her heart.....
There's also another problem with wearing so many layers. I'm used to having just two layers on my bottom half - my panties and my jeans. So going potty requires just two layers to come off .
Jeans - check- panties- check - oh no! Those were just my long janes! There's another layer!
WHOOPS, S-T-O-P!! (didja ever notice how we can stop in mid-stream??? -) boy, that was a lucky save!
Geesh! Who knew....??
Everything in the winter seems to take more effort. Walks. Shopping. Dressing. Now potty?
I just need to get used to all this layering, the wet mittens, the frozen socks, the fogged-up eyeglasses, the hat-hair, the constant red face....
Hey, ain't I a beauty in my silky long-johns???
Boy, do I love winter!!
I think I'll take 2 asprin and rest a while....
