Have I ever told you my story about....... underwear?

Well, when we lived in Oklahoma, I was forever running up and down the stairs with baskets of laundry because my washer/dryer were downstairs, but the boys' rooms were upstairs.

So, one day I was going up the stairs with a basket of laundry. And I had taken my bathrobe off to put in the washer, so I was just in my underwear and bra. Well, as I started up the stairs, Big Daddy came up directly behind me, so he was about 3 stairs below me, so his face was right at my hiney.

Well, out of the silence, I hear Big Daddy exclaim, "Good Grief, WOMAN?!?! HOW MUCH DID THIS MONOGRAMMED UNDERWEAR COST ME?!?!?!?!"


I seriously thought the man was off his rocker.

I replied, "What in the world are you talking about?!?!"

He said, "That underwear you have on is monogrammed!"

"No, it's not. It's like a million years old and I got it at Lane Bryant. It's just regular old underwear!!" I responded. (Now, I suppose if I had told him it was $16 a pair, he probably would have I skipped that detail.)

He said, "Look, it's monogrammed, right there!" (as he put his finger on my waistband.....)

So, I look and sure says RW (my initials) all the way around the waistband of the underwear.
In all the years and with all 10 or so pairs of this underwear I own, I never even realized this detail. I just wear it and that's it.

And with a little bit of thought, I remember that their intimates line used to be known as "real women" OR
in my case.....Roxann Wxxxxx!!!!!

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!

We have had several good laughs about this story!!!!
