Another story for Friday dinner - underwear FAIL? I am keeping a list... :)

TSannie said...

Underwear fail...the elastic gives and your undies are suddenly puddled on the floor??? Or as on some unnamed person somewhere in this world, the belly has become rotund enough that the undies will roll down said rotund belly. Either way, NOT pretty.

mom x 2 said...

All of the above but especially underwear fail in snug fat jeans!

Debbie said...

Hey, the author I met this weekend has found a SURE FIRE way to stop her daughter's eczema. It's a vitamin packed whole wheat bread she makes. I'd be more than happy to hook you up. She was amazed and the change!!

My petty this week: Latinos in America. Hey! What does this say to the Greeks, Italian, French, Chinese, etc?

Oh yeah, that little white chin hair...the one that has the consistency of a tiny bar of steel. But what is really bugging me, right this very minute, is the annoying itch on my back...that is just out of reach. And I can't find the back scratcher; the one with the tiny hand on the end. I think I may have thrown it out because the tiny hand scared me a little. Now I wish I would have just sucked it up. :) I'm not even gonna get into the whole underwear situation. No good.

Oh, the stories that could be told about each one of them!!!! I may make up my own list for my blog- oh what fun.

Trisha said...

Water bottles the leak
Kitties who wake you before dawn
Husbands who snore making it impossible to listen to the rain on the roof

Living on the Spit said...

The dude jack hammering the street for the past three days...gah!

Decadent Housewife said...

Minimizer bras - is that what you mean?

Keetha said...

Gray skies and rain are back, along with muggy temperatures. Boo.

Daryl said...

Life

Gin said...

Don't even get me started...

Sandie said...

Oh, you crack me up! I can identify with every one of these EXCEPT the tissues without lotion. Without fail, those lotion-filled tissues smudge up my glasses each time I try to use one.

P.S. Can I add finding a gray hair in your eyebrows to this list? They always deflate my bubble.

How about the snug pants-related "Jean Dance"? You know, where you hold onto the waistband and jump a little to the right, a little to the left.

I hate that dance.

As for the hair issue. I despair that I will one day become the retirement home's "Bearded Lady". (at least I can maybe score a few bucks as a sideshow freak...)

Karen Deborah said...

snug fat jeans that would be a big ditto.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I'm with Daryl. Life, plus a wiry BLACK hair sprouting from my chin. Oh, and my half moustache. Why half? Why?

Flash Stitcher said...

I'm in total agreement with Dayrl and Gin....
You name it and I am po'd about it right now.

Snooty Primadona said...

I'm truly afraid to ask about the underwear...

And, I just started using this great body lotion by (of all people) Gold Bond Healing Skin Therapy Lotion and it's really intense. It really works for hubby, who has eczema. It's so dense that you can't put it on more than once a day. Honest!

Lisa said...

I feel your pain on all ... and would like to add underwire bra fail -- where the wire scoots its way out the side!

Deb said...

Hmmm....since losing weight, I am now in the smallest size pants I own. I told my husband (hint hint) if I lose anymore weight, I'm walking around naked. Of course, I didn't get the response I was looking for!

Country Girl said...

For a minute, I thought Trisha said "husbands who snore making it" and I was so very sad about that. But then I read the rest and had to laugh at myself.

My pet peeve for the week: dreaming of delicious tasting food and not getting any. At least my underwear fits better. Sorry, but it's because of the lack of food.

Grace said...

Hmmm, about those chin hairs .... today I went and got my eyebrows, chin and upper lip threaded. Then I went out to lunch with my daughter and her friend. By the time I got home, I could already feel those d**n hairs growing back. What is up with that?

Carol said...

Regis is egregious, hee hee.

These Nine Acres said...

*snort* I would have to agree with the snug fat jeans.

imom said...

Bad cramps, books I don't connect with, waiting to hear about appraisals. I'm sure I could think of more, but I need to go take some ibuprofin for my bad cramps. :(

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I second the "snug fat jeans" one... and add to it, simply, "muffin tops."

Also, would have to add the soap opera that the Redskins have become. Yet I can't look away. It's like a house afire.

Suz Broughton said...

Must hear more about this Underwear Fail, please.

imbeingheldhostage said...

"Snug fat jeans"... hmmmm, you mean they're supposed to fit loosely? (note to self: must buy bigger jeans)

The muffin top above my snug fat jeans and Plumpkins!
