Can polyester underwear shrink? Warning TMI

If you do not like to talk or think about other people’s underwear, go read the pioneer woman’s blog and come back tomorrow, where I will talk about diet coke.

This morning, I got out of the shower and put on my underwear, my big, pink, polyester, granny panties and they were not providing their usual coverage. (Okay they are nylon, but polyester sounds better and it is all fake fabric anyway)They must have shrunk in the dryer. There is no possible way that I gained enough weight over the holidays to fall out of my underwear. I mean there were cookies, pies, chips, dips, ham, candy and a little wine, but really not that much. For goodness sakes I ran 23 miles last week. Come to think of it my socks are to tight too.

Okay here is the too much information part. I have worn the same kind of underwear for the last 15 years. Big, polyester, Fruit of the Loom granny panties. I have tried other kinds and Lord knows that EB has bought me bunches of skimpy little panties that are collecting dust in my drawer. But I will stick to my granny panties, I have reasons. I was going to share but I think I will stop by right here.

Okay one more point and then I will just let it go. Once, my mother gave me some of her underwear that was too small for her. Can I just say EEEEEEWWWW, I know they were clean and I don’t care if she gave birth to me. I can not, will not wear my mother’s hand me down underwear. I just had a horrible thought. My boys wear each others underwear all the time. EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW

OMG! My mom gave me some of her underwear too, and holy grossness, I have been known to wear it! I didn't think anything of it until you just mentioned it. Lord.
Here is another one for you---my dad is absolutely appalled that my mom uses his old, worn out underwear to dust the furniture. He literally has to leave the room shaking his head and mumbling, "I can't believe you use those for that sh*t." Which is frequently followed by, "Amy, can't you get your mother to just throw those things away???!!!" Because my mom is a lot like me, just knowing that it gets him all riled up makes her want to use them even more. So don't let any stray, worn out Fruit of the Looms land her way.

Apperantly, old underwear should be thoroughly destroyed when disposing them.
