strung up

my mother told me she was going out shopping today. for panties.

it seems one of her good friends is turning fifty years old and a bunch of them are going to get up early and hang fifty undergarments -- in various sizes -- all over the woman's front yard. i think the sign they're working on will say something like, 'happy birthday, we support you!' my mom is usually the epitome of proper decorum (she said she certainly wasn't going to be donating her own undies). outwardly i was shocked that she's let the junior-high humor of her coworkers influence her.

but inside i was thinking to myself, 'damn, i hope i have that much fun when i'm fifty.'

that's so funny. i think the only thing my mom could put on the front lawn would be wine bottles.

...yup, i bet it would be easy to find 50 of those lying around.

That is certainly creative! How funny - I might keep that in mind for a prank sometime. And I definitely hope I'm having that much fun when I'm fifty.

When the joke is over, grab anything that looks my size.

sounds like a fun way to celebrate.

its kind of like that red hat purple dress thing, except raunchier.

and maybe more coordinated.

are none of the birthday brigade donating their own panties, or are we to assume half will be commando at the celebration?
