Okay, whenever my family would go around the table and say what they were thankful for, I would always say socks or underwear. It kept me from having to get all sappy, plus they are really great.
Reasons that undergarments are wonderful:
1. Less laundry. You would have to wash your pants everytime you wore them if it were not for underwear. Or at least I hope you would wash them everytime. Washing your pants less makes them last longer, so underwear actually save you money (well unless you buy $20 underwear or something, but thats your own bad since you can buy them for about $1.25 at Wal-Mart)
2. Jeans. Think about it: jeans would hardly exist without underwear. No one in their right mind would ever want to wear them if underwear were not around.
3. Aestheically pleasing. Lots of underwear are pretty adorable, especially if you go with the cheap ones at Wal-Mart. Cartoon charactors, seasonal designs, they are pretty awesome.
4. Boobs that don’t hit your knees at 25. I am not 25 yet, but I am pretty sure that my boobs will still be pretty much where they are now a year from now. Because I wear a bra. If you don’t wear a bra, your poor boobs will get all stretched out and nasty before you even have kids.
5. Not embarassing other people. You know how it is when you have to carry on a conversation with someone not wearing a bra. Trying to avert your eyes without them noticing and still maintaining some amount of eye contact.
6. Not having to wear a corset and pantaloons. I am all about girls dressing like girls, and would LOVE some old fashioned clothes. But I am sticking with my modern undergarments. I do NOT want to wear a corset. Well part of me does so I can look like I am super skinny, but I’m pretty lazy and like being comfortable.
7. Less stinky shoes. When you wear shoes (of the non-sandal sort) without socks your feet sweat like crazy. Socks absorb the sweat so you just throw the gross part in the wash and the expensive shoes remain relatively non-disgusting.
This post was really weird, but seeing as how that is almost always what I said around the table at Thanksgiving, I thought it needed to be said here.
