    So funny! This was brilliant–and OF COURSE someone needs you the moment you are having an undergarment crisis!

  2. kmkat says:

    Be that as it may, I adore the color of your bra. And admire you ENORMOUSLY for taking a photo of it (during office hours?).

    Now why am I wondering what bra you wore to the gym? Could you not have pout on the stinky gym bra?

    I am giving much too much thought to your underwear.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Chelle–The running bra was disgusting. I’d just been pounding on the treadmill and so the thing was not just damp but wet. Plus, my work clothes were kind of nicey-nice, dry-clean only stuff.

    I thought about taking the shoelaces out of my running shoes and rigging up some boob scaffolding that way, though.

    I can put lipstick on with mine (or lipstick ON mine, one of the two)

    Funny how once you started into the taking clothes off during your “office hours” I began to get the notion that I betcha some student or other person is going to come knocking on her door now. Funny isn’t it how people who think alike, believe in Murphy and his freaking law and presto magic, these things happen then! And yes, reading your words about it all, it was very funny! Love the way you put things together that way!

    Imagine if your office door didn’t lock properly, and you were, as you described beautifully, gnawing away on your bra when discovered by your student.What is there to say other than “beats biting my nails”. I also think that men could never understand the pain of an underwire gone feral. Give me a broken clasp anyday, even if it does draw blood. It’s better better than speared breast.Prod the wire back and it’s even more determined.Can be vicious things, bras.

    “low hang” … LOL – I know exactly what you mean! Had an incident last night, late hour, husband feeling a bit romantic (note – been married for 16 years…), sort of making the “feeling me up-moves”, complaining about the garment being in the way, so as the nice little wifey one sometimes is, I removed it, and then him sitting behind me, wanting to continue his exercise, couldn’t reach as “they” now were, yes exactly – low hang… :o)))

    Your posts are a generous FEAST for those of us who love to read (and probably for those who don’t, but I’ll never be one of those so I’ll never know). Thanks for my Saturday morning fix! I just may have to learn to “Twitter”.

    i know that agony all to well, my sister of the low hang.

    i am not finnish but having grown up in the ever thrifty pa dutch culture i appreciate the waste no want not attitude. here’s a dandy little project for you to make fine use of that boulder holder which has lost its hydraulic usefulness.

    your boobs hang low
    do they waggle to and fro
    can you tie em in a knot
    can you tie em in a bow
    can you sling em o’r your shoulders
    like a Continental soldier,
    do your boooooooobs

    Not only that but yours write, wow!

    I wish you had this episode on video.

    This is reminding me of my stocking adventure earlier this week…but without someone knocking on the door.

    And Niblet and Piglet would get along fabulously! Piglet also requires ridiculous amounts of food in order to return to a civilized person.

    Bras can be such fun XD

  15. Karen MEG says:

    I’m crying, just crying here 🙂

    Nice colour of the garment, though… for that reason alone, it would have been worth saving …

  16. Jill says:

    Reason number 7 to always keep a pair of wire cutters in your desk.

    “Swing loooooow, sweet chariot….”

  17. the cubicle's backporch says:

    Bras are over-rated anyway. That one deserved to be ripped to shreds!

  18. Jazz says:

    Oh how I love the expression “foundation garment”…

    And here I was gonna post a foundation garment story of my own… Eventually.

  19. Le Meems says:

    aaah. The old bent hook trick. Something similar happened to me once. I was wearing a midi-sports bra and it created a muffin top with regular clothes.

    So I was faced with either:

    Flapping in the Wind

    I went with option C, plastic tape wound around and around. It hurt like a bitch ripping that off the old nipples at the end of the day.

    Like ripping band aids off your eyeballs.

    I empathize my friend.

    Ah, commas. My husband's brother, to whom he once gave the url of my blog, actually read one post and then sent me an email offering hope in the form of Strunk & White, urging me to buy a copy as it had helped him so very much.

    His, email, was, laced, with, mystifying, commas, which, inspired, me, to, pronounce, (amid, snorts, and, giggles, of, a, most, unladylike, nature,) that, he, suffered, from, commarrhea.,,

    As for bras, once they draw blood, they do not even deserve to have their cold, dead vivisected bodies covered from the prying eyes of passersby.

    Is Megan your only customer, or are they all named Megan?
