It's back-to-school time around the country and that means back-to-school sales abound in the stores. Not only do I like to stock up on deeply discounted school supplies this time of year, but I also like to replenish the family's supply of undergarments. Last week, after having made my selections and heading to the checkout of Target, I was putting Luci's new undies on the conveyor belt when a bright little sticker caught my attention. I hadn't noticed it on the shelf, or when I picked it up and tossed it in the shopping cart. Frankly, there were only three things I was paying attention to: that they were "normal" panties and not itty bitty bikini cut, that the price was right, and the size was right. Into the shopping cart they went. But at the checkout I caught sight of the little sticker that read:
I'm not kidding, in fact, you can visit www.wedgiefree.com to check them out. Now, Luci has a problem with wedgies, so this was great news. I showed her the little sticker and whispered to her what it said. She made a little fist, raised it in the air, then pumped it to her side in a gesture that indicated this was fantastic!
Fast forward a week later. During karate class Luci noticed that one of her Senseis was having a problem with a wedgie. As he picked at the back of his pants struggling to undo what was obviously uncomfortable. Luci looked up at him and said, "I have wedgie-free panties."
Sensei Darryl, trying very hard to hold in his laughter replied, "That's good, but I don't."
