My butt was like lead today and my couch was like a magnet! (Possibly a bad analogy...Is lead even magnetic?) I had big plans for my day today. I was going to walk just for the sake of walking to get my exercise in and then some but I didn't sleep well last night and as the day crept on it didn't look like it was going to happen. Then I realized...I have to MAKE it happen!
So I got up, put on my shoes, coat and mittens and I got out in it! I was so proud of myself. Eager to see the area in which I live and be alone with my thoughts. Everything was going great until one block from my house when my underpants started creeping up my butt right in front of the train station. It was all I could think about. It is really hard to get underpants to stop creeping up your butt when your wearing mittens let me tell you! So off the mittens come and I gave it a good tug trying not to worry about who might be looking. Fine. Back to just me and my thoughts.
' Then my belt started kind of slipping around on my hip and pushing at my underpants from the other way! I had new/used jeans on I had gotten at the resale shop for 10 krone and I guess I am not comfortable in them yet. Ok. Mittens off...rebuckle the belt. Fine. I can stop thinking about my underpants now...only they started crawling up my butt again. Plus I was pretty sure that the guy coming toward me had seen me unbuckle my belt just a minute ago so I felt that I should wait until he passed to try and fix my underpants again or he might think I was a weirdo.
OK...fine. Now I am fine. Just me and my thoughts getting some exercise like a normal person. Not thinking about my underpants at all. Except they could be more comfortable. Do they always feel this way or did they get all stretched out from sitting on the couch all morning? Should I turn around and change them or just keep going. If I could just stop thinking about it!
I went under the road and over the canal onto the nearby island when I happily realized that I had stopped thinking about my underpants. Except, the fact that I realized that caused me to start thinking about them again! They really could fit better. In fact I was aware of no other article of clothing on my whole body EXCEPT my underpants! Was this going to go on the whole time? Is this what "my thoughts" are? Do I have nothing more to think about except my underpants? I mean really!
Then I passed by this guy...
I like the general idea. Would solve the problem. But geesh! It's a little cold for that isn't it?
Somehow after that I managed to stop thinking about my underpants and got on with my walk as well as "my thoughts"..although aside from the underpants thing I honestly cannot remember a single one of them!
Here are two more pictures from my walk.
It is hard to say if she is wearing underpants or not and if so whether or not they are riding up her butt. (OK...So I thought a little more about underpants as I walked on.)
A ferry boat. Lots of people on it. Lots of underpants. (I wasn't thinking that then...it only now just occurred to me.)
Have a great day and may it be unencumbered by random underpants "situations"!
