who's pants are you wearing?

i remember being young and stupid...pause.... at times i still am but perhaps i have grown out of this particular childhood joke.....perhaps

i would select my victims neither carefully or thoughtfully(...i was seven...) and proceed with a line of questioning until they made complete fools of themselves and fell right into my plan...
"hey look at that."-me


"that under there..."-me


"under there..."-me

"under where?!"-victim

"hahaha you said underwear!!!hahaha!"-me

i am not sure why this was so amusing to me. Underwear wasn't a swear word or anything like that but it was hilarious at the time...who knows....although just thinking about it is making me giggle.

people have lots of different names for their underwear here are a few i've heard.....

underwear panties underthings undergarments fudgies underroos underpinnings Knickers bloomers guchees briefs pants(slang in england) shorts roos bikini briefs BVD's corset drawers intimate things jockey shorts jockeys lingerie long johns skivvy smallclothes underclothes underclothing underpants undershirt underthings undies unmentionables woollies thermals boxers

etcun·der·wear Pronunciation: '&n-d&r-"war, -"wer Function: noun: clothing or an article of clothing worn next to the skin and under other clothing

what do you call yours?

i prefer panties

LOL! :) I have many stories related to pants from living in Dublin - in fact, saying "trousers" was so imbedded in my vocabulary that I only recently started saying "pants" again instead of trousers :) It's taken me months to re-incorporate that one. For example, after only a week of living in Dublin, my dear Irish friend, Patrick crashes on the couch next to me. The jeans I had on were low-rise and SO annoying...so I'm tugging at them while we're sitting there and said, "these stupid low-rise pants!" to which Patrick yells, "Woah! Too much information!" Trousers quickly became part of my everyday vocab. :)

Rach, how 'bout I read your "Dublin joke" right before the phone rang (I'm at work, of course) and had to try way too hard to not crack up laughing on the phone! :)

i like to call them "gutchies" - but i prefer not to have to wear them, so i'm not sure how much the name matters in this case

Doogle, btw, Caroline, is worthy. Of what, I'm not sure, but it's one of many things that brings me out of my tired spell. Cheers.
