It's the most wonderful time of the year

With one exception:



Pantyhose. Ick.

I'm with you on the pantyhose thing, but Halloween tights are OK!

I was so thinking the same thing yesterday as I got ready for church. HATE them.

Laura said...

The last time I worn Pantyhose was at my cousin's wedding (5 years ago.) I have always find an alternative way to dress up for a Halloween without needing to include pantyhose.

Winder said...

At least the pantyhose can help hide hairy legs if you haven't managed to shave that week! Look at me finding the positive and being so humble about it.

Yes... but you see, Spouse finds pantyhose revolting which means I have to put them on in private. I think he'd prefer the hairy legs to the pantyhose and I would too if it weren't for the warmth that they meagerly provide. My legs are pretty hairy (among the hairiest I know), but do do not adequately provide the warmth necessary.

Can I wear my Halloween leggings to church? They've got skulls on them... and might provide an object lesson of some type (eternal something or other).

I prefer to call them stockings. I have actually been on the prowl for some cute one's to go with my skirts, that way I can rotate some of my summer attire. But for me, pantyhose really don't make it past the initial stasis. That is my feet, they tend to tear a hole right in them. And then, well, they are no good. So I don't wear them.

Vera said...

SHAVE!!?? Was I supposed to shave my legs? Damn...just another thing no one ever taught me. I blame the lack of vouchers!

rabidrunner said...

Yes... public school just isn't pulling it's weight these days, leaving Vera to fend for her hairy legs all by herself.

Although, it sounds curiously like a diabolic scheme. If they don't teach girls to shave, there wouldn't be a need for sex ed. The diabolical abstinence through hairyness scheme.

I must mention that I have not purchased pantyhose in close to four years. Why, you ask? Is it because I never wear them? No. Is it because I'm so gentle that I never tear them? Heavens no. Is it because I won the pantyhose lottery? Nope. Dangit. It's because Vera gave me an eight year supply of the wrinkly things when she was relieved of her business suite-heels-and-pantyhose-job. Thanks again Vera! Once again, you've "put me at the top of the world!"

Hardy Har Har....I laughed so hard I peed myself, perfectly too I might add! (Note the humility)
