Underwear that's fun to wear

Mom, Dad and Hunter the Dog left this morning to go back to South Carolina.

As we were all saying our goodbyes Mom, in an attempt at lightening up the emotional situation, announced to no one in particular:

"Don't crinkle up your underwear."

Dead silence.

We all just looked at each other.

Even the dogs tilted their heads sideways in bewilderment.

[Hmmmmmm. Don't crinkle up your underwear. What is Mom trying to say?]

"Mom, do you mean, 'Don't get your panties in a wad?'", I ask.

"Yeah, that's it! Ha Ha Ha. ", she laughs.

The words of wisdom I have learned from my mother constantly astounds me.

You have to love moms and their helpful comments!

That ranks right up there with "Always wear clean underwear, you never know when you are going to be in a wreck." I'm thinking if I am in a wreck, the last thing I am going to be worried about is my underwear! Then again......

Oh, The Joys said...

I'm going to teach my Granny to say that! Ha!

That is hilarious!!

Regarding the previous post, my mom and dad moved away from us right after we were married. I wonder if they felt that way. We're tempted to move away from ours!
