Doug and I have had an ongoing debate about one particular question for almost 29 years now.
I have one point of view, he has another. And since he has never, ever worn the object of the discussion, I don’t know why he has always had such an opinion. Perhaps it’s because he used to be more hardheaded and unwilling to admit when he’s wrong. Not that the word “wrong” comes forth from his lips very often even these days but still…
And just what is the question, inquiring minds want to know?
We discussed it again just the other day. It was a slow news day.
For those of you that think this is just too delicate a subject, please stop now and come back manana.
I’m a firm believer that the cotton crotch in pantyhose means that wearing panties at the same time is redundant. Doug thinks that most women still wear panties underneath. (Luckily for him he hasn’t gone out to do any research in person.) To be perfectly honest I must admit that I haven’t conducted a study, ALA The Kinsey Report or anything. I just think I’m right. And it isn’t that Doug complains about my point of view, quite the opposite. It’s just that he’s held onto his notion for so long, that he has a hard time believing that he could be wrong.
In actuality I don’t think that there is a right or wrong answer. Not that I’d tell him that of course. I’m just assuming that most women don’t.
So today I Googled the question. I wasn’t even sure I’d get an answer. But I got one- more than one.
Then I kept looking and found another site which had posed the same question.
So I guess we weren’t the only people discussing this.
Of course if you believe what you see and hear in the fashion world these days, pantyhose are passe anyway, unless they’re actually tights which are a whole different thing altogether. But since I’m an AARPer, I still think that when you get dressed up, hosiery is in order. They just make your legs look better. And I think the older you get, the more you need them. Life is hard on legs. Well it’s certainly been hard on my legs anyway.
I told Doug what I’d read on Google. However he said I should still ask the question.
Do you or don’t you?
If you find the question too personal, please feel free to opt out. I will totally understand.
