and she thought she was grand...

Funny the things one remembers while trying to think of something to write about. I was married to a business man, living in a fairly large town. Anyone who did'nt know us at least knew who we were. One day I had to go to the mall, so put on a pair of brown pants, smart co-ordinated jacket, high heeled boots,great shoulder bag, hair perfect, makeup on just right and off I went. I was walking through the mall, with head held high, thinking I was the best thing since sliced bread. People were passing me smiling and I was smiling and nodding back. I saw something out of the corner of my eye as I turned my head and nearly fainted when I saw about two feet of panty hose trailing behind me coming out of the leg of my pants. Seems when I last wore the pants, i forgot to take out the hose, so without knowing this I put the pants on with the hose still inside. What to do!!! I grabbed the end of the hose and started pulling, do you know how hard it is to pull panyhose out of the leg of the pants you are wearing...the more I pulled, the more they stretched. I was mortified! I pulled and pulled and finally got them out and immediately balled them up and shoved the embarrassing item in my purse. Head down, feeling very humble, I went on.

Ha ha, so funny. Reminds me of the time I wore self supporting stockings. They kept creeping down, I would surreptitiously pull them up, this kept happening until finally one got beyond my control and fell all the way down. I took them off in the middle of town and stuffed them into my bag. This has also happened with an underslip too! So glad it happens to others too.

I can very much see that in my head. I remember those days when you would dress like a stick of gum to go to the store and now..out in the garden with rubber boots, hair in a braid..I bet you wouldn't go back.

There was a time when I wore pantyhose and you know how hard it was to get the right fit.

Well one night my husband went out dancing at a very nice club. We start dancing and the pantyhose started creeping down my legs.

I got off the dance floor with great difficulty and i think that was the day I stopped wearing those darn things!

Tee hee hee. You poor thing. I empathise. I had a similar incident involving a rebellious pair of hold-ups, a High Court judge and 5 lanes of traffic.

I can never ever go back to Nottingham!

Thanks for making me laugh once again! The most embarrassing thing I can remember doing was walking into the mens toilets by mistake at a very posh hotel. There were two men standing peeing at the urinals. I came out very red faced to see a crowd of people looking my way. I rushed into the ladies next door and stayed there for at least 15 minutes until I hoped everyone had gone away!
