My Day Without Underwear (and other embarrassing stories)
by Kirsten Scott
Okay, true story...I am a bike commuter (well, sometimes...like when the weather's really nice and I'm not feeling too lazy) and I typically throw an outfit into my bag so I can shower and change at work. A couple of days ago, I pulled on my clean undies and bike shorts (fashion police, arrest me now!) and put a white cotton skirt into my backpack to change into after my shower.
Fast forward thirty minutes, and I'm climbing out of the shower at work. I grab the undies, only to realize I had put on BLACK underwear that morning, never thinking that I was eventually going to be wearing them under my WHITE skirt. Yes, you could see them, and no, I wasn't prepared to walk around all day in the bike shorts. Besides, I had a meeting at 9:30 and there was no way I had time to get home and back before it.
So what to do? Blushes aside, I went commando and hoped that I didn't pull a Basic Instinct during my meeting. Then as soon as my meeting was over, I took the train downtown and bought a pair of way-too-expensive-but-at-least-they-were-white Victoria Secret panties.
So this has NOTHING to do with writing, but it's the weekend and what the heck! So--do you have any embarrassing stories you'd like to share? Ever go commando to work? The Banditas are all ears (but no eyes--we won't look, promise!).
