Atomic Bombshell

In Memorial

January 24th, 2007

GravesEvery once in a while an inanimate object will offer service so far above and beyond the call of duty that it deserves a special salute. This week I had a pair of stockings finally bite the dust, in grand style, after four months of repeated washing and wearing. Ladies, you know this is truly exceptional.

Working five days a week at an office that requires women to always keep their legs wrapped in (the sausage casings known as) nylons can cause a decent impact on your pocketbook. Pantyhose sell for anywhere between $5 to $15 each on average. Let’s not even talk about my secret love for Wolford, which can set you back around $100 per pair. And how long do they last? Maybe two weeks if you’re lucky.

Therefore, I salute you, magical stockings. You seemed like a simple pair of Calvin Klein nylons from the sale bin at Marshall’s but you gave $3.99 of value a dozen times over. When at last you gave up the ghost, with a run as wide as my fist from hip to mid-calf, I wore it proudly for the rest of the day as a memorial to your excellent service.

    LOL, I loved this entry! I HATE nylons, they are the most high-maintenance article of clothing, ever! Gah! I can’t seem to get more than 5 wears outta mine. You might me too young, but do you remember the L’eggs pantyhose that came in the egg shaped container? LOL, I was a child of the 70s…

    Heck yeah, I remember those! Now they sell L’eggs in a stupid cardboard container that is a pathetic departure from the original. Mom used to save those plastic eggs, put candies and plastic “grass” inside, and use them in my Easter basket!

    Haha, you’re amazing! And you have very expensive taste. I had friend who loved Wolford. She told me how much they cost and I didn’t believe her until she showed me, but she says you get what you pay for. I have a question for you: Why are pantyhose also called nylons and stockings? What’s the difference? I have asked a few girls and they don’t know. Some have thought they are all the same, but some think they are not. I like asking that cause most of the time it puzzles you girls when I ask.

    And the reason i dont have pics of you and your stockings….aside from good taste, moral character and self control, that is.
