What Color Are YOUR Underwear?

Last night I was folding laundry and PsychDaddy was watching and talking to me while he sat beside Jenna at our kitchen island.  As I held up a pair of gray underwear to fold, here’s the conversation that followed:

PsychDaddy:  Who in the world has a butt that big??

Me: (with raised eyebrows) They’re MY underwear, thankyouverymuch.

PsychDaddy: (back-pedaling, stammers) “I really thought they were mine.  I didn’t think any women’s underwear would be ugly GRAY.”

Me: (raise eyebrows to the max and give him the stink eye)  For your information, they came in a pack of three and the other two colors were cheery and cute.  Maybe the gray ones are for working out.  Or for days when husbands are in the doghouse.

PsychDaddy looks chagrined

Three minutes later:

PsychDaddy to Jenna:  You have such kissable cheeks – JUST LIKE your Mommy’s

Me:  Daddy’s trying to dig himself out of a hole, I think.

PsychDaddy gives his “busted” grin and pretends to be engrossed in feeding Jenna Cheerios.

Jenna:  Why is Daddy digging a hole?

So, now you know two things about me: that I (apparently) have a very large butt and that I’m wearing gray underwear today.  I think you know why.

    Definitely think you can milk a Victoria’s Secret shopping spree out of this one! Hilarious!

    Also, I have grey underwear, too… and I don’t work out.

    I agree with Rachel isn’t your birthday coming up – I think Psychdaddy needs to go out and get psychmamma new underwear if he doesn’t like the “big grey” ones.

    Forget the underwear…I think PsychDaddy should get PsychMamma a Wii Fit if he thinks her bottom is really that large. (May as well spin this in your favor, right?) 🙂

    What I don’t get it how my husband and I are pretty similar in size and my underwear look so much bigger than his.

    I don’t think I have any gray underwear. I do have some icky colored green ones that came in a pack though.

    This is too funny. I love that picture too.

    Mine, because you asked so nicely are black with blue butterflies on them.

    As for your husband, I think he owes you something nice for you not smacking him upside the head. Maybe a Wii? 😉

    There’s always one pair in the pack that’s a loser, isn’t there? I think Insta-mom’s idea is pure genius, btw.

    I have some grey ‘panties’ and I happen to like grey. And, yea, must be dog house day, right? LOL

    I just want to say how much I enjoyed the post! Well-written vignettes of family life is what I live to read on blogs. But I ALMOST skipped this one with that statue photo at the top. Couldn’ chkl.

    Hilarious! I’d probably feel compelled to wear the gray ones as often as possible after that. 🙂

    LOL My husband is a hole digger too. Let’s face it Man invented the thong. A smart woman invented the five pack cotton special.

    P.S: Saw you following Mamma Kat and loved your blue butterfly. It’s an eye grabber and I’m happy your blog was just as interesting!

    As long as the briefs match your bra you have nothing to worry about…

    This is hilarious!

    My husband recently asked me if women always wear matching underwear and bra. I told him only if we think someone might see them and/or we want to feel sexy, strong and confident.

    He says I’m smashing his perception of women. LOL.

    You guys crack me up! I LOVE the ideas about justification for purchasing some new, lacy things. 🙂

    Insta-Mom – You are single-minded in your goal to help me get that Wii!! Love you for it. *MWAH*

    Issa – Your underwear match my blog header and avatar!! Are you advertising for me??

    Maura – WHY does there have to be a loser pair in every pack?? It seems like weird marketing. Why even make them? But then there ARE people who like gray, so maybe it’s all in your taste/perspective.

    Jen – Your comment about thong vs cotton inventors completely cracked me up!

    okathleen – They’re supposed to match……..?

    Well apparently, although it’s so dark in the morning when I get dressed, it would be a happy accident my underwear matched! It’s just that scenario in triage, the shame of being discovered on the trolley with opposing bra and knickers…

    Hilarious 🙂 I’ll bet PsychDaddy feels itty bitty about now! (You know, like your butt!)
