But the female gender has a confounding number of choices, none of which ever seem to be perfect. There are your basic granny-panties (too old-fashioned), the high-cut briefs (used to be good, but don't work with the low-rise fashions), bikinis (like the old 1970s kind - very retro), string bikinis, g-strings, thongs, low-rise thongs . . . the list goes on, and don't even get me started on color, fabric, and price. We're always searching for the perfect pair that is comfortable, doesn't ride above your pants, doesn't show panty-lines, doesn't show through, doesn't cut into your soft spots and cause the dreaded "double-cheek" syndrome, doesn't create uncomfortable and unflattering divisions elsewhere . . .
So the other day I was shopping the clearance racks and I decided to try another new style - the low-rise boy short. For those of you not familiar with this style, my butt-double (the resemblance is striking) will demonstrate. Claims of an invisible panty-line. My ass. No, literally, my ass.
Only a few of you may have actually had the privilege of meeting me as I tagged along with DrChako to one of those crazy Vegas blogger tourneys and you may have zero recollection of my butt (or care to, for that matter). It is by no means an oversized butt, but lets say that for my size and frame, God made sure that he filled in as much of the curve as he could. As such (as demonstrated by my superb butt-double here), much of my "junk" hangs well out of the "trunk". And to top it all off, they are low-rise. So I'm not quite sure whether I should be showing crack above the top, or butt below the bottom. Its quite confusing, and as such, I spent more of the day wondering about my undergarment placement than the "strategic market-facing opportunities" I was supposed to focus on during our management meeting.
If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to get custom made panties that are designed with this butt in mind. Until then, I think there is a lacy pink pair of boy shorts that will have to wait until the doctor comes home to be entertained.
