My Underpants

**A List and B List live in my top drawer, fitted to each other recto verso**

Might there be a photograph or illustration of this, for those of us whose latin is a bit fuzzy?

"I have a very comfortable brown pair with green and orange argyle"

I think I have the same ones!

"maybe I bled on them and it seems wise to keep some underpants around for the sole purpose of not worrying about bleeding on them."

I keep a few of these two.

I think I mentally organize in this way, but don't have enough space (or resolve) to do it physically.

In honour of this post, I actually wore those today. I quite enjoy them.

Zoom, recto verso was totally the wrong term. I was addled. Recto verso is a printing term that means print on both sides of the page. Tête-bêche is also a book term, but it means head-to-tail, what you see in a lot of bilingual books. Thanks for pushing me to look into that!

This posting made me do an audit of my own panty stash. Lots on B - list, but clearly I need to get out to store and restock the A-list. Some B-listers were formerly solid A-listers, but no longer. Thanks for this.

Thank you for sharing...

For years I went without panties... now that I'm of "wise woman" age, I wear mostly Fancies.

Unlike with the rest of my clothes, they're not organized by colour, style or other. They're all tossed together in a drawer in a big tangle of colours, patterns and textures.

I approve of the use of silly words in this post. My favourite was "skoozle".
My underwear drawer has the opposite problem. I can never find any in the morning. Often their hiding underneath the long underwear I can't keep anywhere else or they've migrated to the back where all the pairs I don't wear get shoved. The problem probably stems from the fact that I don't do my own laundry, but I don't see myself changing that anytime soon (It's like magic! The clothes go in the hamper and, a few days later, they come back clean! I love the Laundry fairy.)

Thanks for thinking of me, but don't worry about the p-word. My eyes only burned for a second. ~CB.
