I May Have To Change Grocery Stores, But I Still Have My Panties! ~ Back To Blogging Day 3



Today's challenge is to re-publish a post that has a title that you are particularly proud of, again this one speaks for itself!

I May Have To Change Grocery Stores, But I Still Have My Panties!
How many people do you know who can say they lost their underwear at the grocery store? Yep, underpants lost at my local Kroger. Now before you start to think that I was getting hinky with the frozen foods guy, let me explain.

I had errands to run so I had to put on real clothes. For those of you who don't know me in person this means actual pants (not sweats or jammie type pants), shirts with no holes & the appropriate undergarments. If I'm at home all day, I cannot vouch for what you will see if you come knocking on my door unexpectedly, but I can assure you that it isn't pretty.

I was at Target looking for some of those new empire-waisted baby doll type tops that are in style right now & flatter my type of figure. You know the body type with extra rolls of fat around the middle & rear, (sorry to have to leave that image in your head.) When I was reaching in my jeans pocket to get out my car keys I thought I felt something in there besides my keys. I dug around & alas, nothing but keys. I hopped in my Mom-mobile (teal colored Ford Windstar mini-van) & ran off to the grocery store.

I got some lettuce from the produce department, started to move on & realized that I needed some fruit so I circled back. Then I saw them. Laying on the tile in the produce department was a pair of my underwear. You may wonder how I knew they were mine, but I knew it as well as I know my name. Those were my underpants...laying on the floor...in the middle of the produce department...at my local Kroger. They must have been stuck inside my jeans from the dryer. I quickly walked over to the bread aisle & weighed my choices. These were a favorite pair of mine. The kind that don't wedge into inappropriate places, don't droop, sag or show visible panty lines. I needed to get these underwear back!

I casually walked back to produce noticed that there were several people around, but none of them were near my unders. Luckily I was able to kick them into the organic food department & pick them up without anyone noticing. I hope.

*Update - I now have a new mini-van, but the same Kroger & the same panties!

how funny, I would have done the same thing. I have to be careful now since we bought a house with all glass front doors, yippee (means getting dressed from now on every morning.

Stopped by from SITS!

The title did catch my attention. I am so glad that you were able to save the panties. You just can let a good pair go...

Hilarious.

LOL, loved this post! I think I would have been to horrified to go get them, but then if I didn't I would wonder if the store cameras saw the whole thing and if they would recognize me the next time I came in..lol Thanks for the laugh today, visiting from SITS :)

OMGoodness that is so stinkin' funny!

One time in high school my undies were bothering me. I kept thinking what the heck. I went to the bathroom and there was one of those foamy fabric softner sheets (remember those from the 90's?) stuck to my undies. Lord have mercy.

Talk about uncomfortable.
