"I May Have To Change Grocery Stores, But I Still Have My Undies!"

Phew... you all are F.U.N.NY. I may just have to save a few of these for the future, but for today, since I am enjoying my husband being home and answering FUN questions like "Why are the batteries dead in all of the flashlights?" or "Who put this hole in the drywall?" or, "Do the kids always act like this?" and even, "Why don't we sit down and look at our finances?" I may not have time to write as often as I like to... but you can be sure that while I am sitting at the kitchen table with the finance spreadsheets and listening to the new plan to save MORE money, because who really needs to buy groceries, I will be thinking of this blog and all of the great things I would like to tell you about... honest.

But for today, I would like to hand the wheel over to Mimi. Not only does Mimi have time to write ONE blog... but she has time to write TWO! Can you believe it? I think she has a split personality and that is how she can cope, but what do I know? Anyway, her story made me laugh out loud! Enjoy!


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 pantie 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.

Mimi said...

O.M.G. My dog is now cowering in the corner because I was running around the house making happy shouts.

I am so proud to know that my underwear story is out there for others to learn from. Whenever possible use me as an example of what not to do!

Cris, if I lived in Omahaheho I would come over & replace your flashlight batteries personally!

Enjoy your hubby.

That is a pretty funny. I admit I have seen underwear on the floor shopping before, but have never stopped to pick them up. I don't think any of them were mine.

June, so glad to hear that hubby is back safe and sound. I know you are going to enjoy your time with him.

Mimi, LOVED the story! Had me rolling with laughter. I'm sure the people who check out the security cameras were killing themselves with laughter as well. :)

That happened to me at college once. I felt this bulge in my pants leg when I sat down at the desk for my first class of the day. I reached up the leg and pulled out a wadded up pair of undies and a dryer sheet that apparently had gotten stuck in there when the clothes were folded and put away. Dem panties went into my backpack very quickly. I don't think anyone saw...
