Touchy feely

I went shopping for underwear today.

For Husband.

Well, I did stray into M&S for myself, but they didn't have anything I liked. So off I wandered to try and buy something for him.

So, trunks, boxers, slips, hipsters, button fly, keyhole (excuse me?) fly, A-frame (what? He needs scaffolding now?) fly, micro-fibre, cotton, jersey......

Eh???

I really should know what he wears. But most of the time, when I'm focussing on this part of Husband's anatomy, he's NAKED! And now I'm trapped in a narrow eisle in a department store, surrounded by pictures of improbably endowed semi-naked male torsos and crotches. (NB, the M&S Point of Sale graphics are to be savoured. I wondered about slipping one in my bag, but since it was two foot by two foot, I didn't have a big enough bag. Curses.)

I was just about coping until I strayed, unintentionally, into the Jockey section. My jaw dropped open and I started to blush.

My fast-erroding composure was finally obliterated by the words emblazoned across some anonymous model's bulging package - Soft To The Touch

Husband can buy his OWN underwear....

Did you ever see that Father Ted episode when all the priests were trapped in the lingerie dept? This reminded me of that... and I can just see your face...

Thank you, thank you... ;-)

No, Kate, I haven't seen that, but - oh! - I can picture it! ROFL!

Yes, it reminds me of the Father Ted episode, too. One of my favourites.

I occasionally walk past the Calvins in House of Fraser just to look at the packages (that meant in both senses of the word). Haven't actually tried to buy the things. I might try it out...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I love this! I guess I'm lucky -- I can just pick up a package of BVDs at Wal-Mart for my husband and he's happy. However, your post has really made me want to shop elsewhere . . . *g*

LOL, Anna! I make my husband buy his own underwear. I feel weird buying men's underwear!
