Another Embarrassing Moment

I wear too much black. My friends have noticed. My child has noticed.

So today, I am sporting a pair of white capris. Oh yeah, I am living on the wild side.

Standing in line with my daughter at Subway, in the heat of the lunch rush, and just as it was time to place our order, Miss Priss and I had the following conversation:

MP: Mom, I can totally see your underwear through those pants.

Me: Shhh, no you can't. You want the club?

MP: Yes I can!

Me: She'll have the club.

MP: [Poking my rear] And if I can't see through them, how come I can see your smiley faced underwear?

Niiiice. Good thing I love her. Of course I'd STILL like to know "how come" she couldn't see them before we left the house?? Did I mention this particulah Subway is a place we frequent, downstairs from the office, know everyone there by name...?

Ah, it reminds me of the time the child was a vocal (and quite articulate) three year old... [Ladies, continue...]

We were in a very public, very crowded restroom, sharing a stall, when she asked in her loudest, most articulate and most adorable voice evah, "Mommy! Why is there a string hanging out of your bottom?!"

Maybe no one heard, you offer....

Laughter resonated. The sweet kind, of course: "Aaw, how old is she...," etc.


(Yes, I know the guys read this, but they were warned.)

From now on, just don't wear any underwear, Cat

Heh...You have to love them, right? Great story. I think us mom's have a few of those.

Dontcha have a digital camera? Take some pictures of the white pants and have a reader poll to see whether the pants are truly see-through.

All in the interest of the truth. Because really we *can* handle the truth.

Ok, zonker..you're just funny. That was a hilarious story!!! Gotta love 'em, eh?

That was hilarious! As a mommy of 3 I'm sure I am going to have some days like that too. :) Kids really do say the "darndest" things!

"Smiley Faced underwear??????????" Who'd a thunk it!

The warning wasn't strong enough.

I'll be bleaching my eyes if anyone wants me.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little...

It was that "Ladies, continue" trap what did it. You just knew we couldn't stop reading there. And ain't it just like a woman to give a warning like that. Men need a warning like "WARNING! MEN STOP HERE -- GO NO FURTHER". We'd still go ahead and do it anyway, but at least we'd believe we were warned fair and square.

Those were really good stories :)

BTW...I like "Commando Cat's" comment. Very chic.

uhhmm, you left out why you had a string hanging out of your butt--isn't that the wrong place?
