They're Going To Take My Days Of The Week Knickers License Away

"So you know how I'm going out for drinks tomorrow night---"

"Wait, I thought you were going out Thursday night."

"Yeah, tomorrow is Thursday."

"No, tomorrow's Wednesday. Today is Tuesday."

"Uh, Sean, today is WEDNESDAY. I think I would KNOW."

"Why would you know?"

"Because I'm wearing my Wednesday knickers! It's not Tough Tuesday, it's Wishful Wednesday! Look!"

"I swear it's Tuesday. Wait, turn on the TV and see what's on."

"Scrubs. Damnit, you're right."

"Told you. Tuesday."

"I can't believe I wore the wrong pair."

You can't go out on Thursday either, The Office...seriously, the office...

I know! Trust me, I had to very carefully weigh up the pros and cons on that one. But rest assured, unless George Clooney himself is out tonight, I'll be back in time for ER.

The new way to wear Days of the Week underpants is to wear the pair you want to FEEL LIKE.

So tomorrow, wear your Sunday pair and kick back in the office with a big cup of coffee, your pj pants and the crossword. And if anyone give you shit, just show 'em your knickers and tell them to bugger off.

Is that something you would still say, you little British transplant?

"Bugger off"?

I think they make you wear them on your head for a week as punishment. (the knicker-of-the-week police, that is)

i totally heard your British accent in that conversation.

A friend (the wonderful S) just recommended your site to me and I LOVE it.

(You can imagine an English accent while I speak as well...but I seem to be living in New Zealand...how DOES this stuff happen? Originally from glamourville, Bournemouth)

By the way on the knickers/pants front. I have a friend who used to go around telling her friends she had poo on her knickers.

She did.

Except it was Pooh.

Caused a few problems, as you can imagine.

Maybe I should nominate her to be a contestant on The Bachelor....

I am now tivo-ing the bachelor because of your entry. I'm only sad I missed some deranged chick bemoan the state of her rotting eggs. After the Firestone days, I just couldn't bring myself to watch the "most exciting rose ceremony ever" with the "take it to the next level" talk and endless hot-tubbing. (I assume they had one built specially for the Paris pad. I mean, it is not the Bachelor unless there is much gratuitous hot-tubbing).

As for the days of the week panties, er, underwear, er, what-have-yous -- (I am not British, so I sound like a right slapper (see?) saying things like "knickers;" if I start there, where does it end? fags? cinema? mispronouncing "aluminum?" writing "amoung"? etc. etc. )-- I'd invest in a set myself if I thought for a minute I could make a Thursday a Friday simply by shimmying into the right pair.

I told my roommates about the bachelor and they were sorry they missed it. I still can't bring myself to watch it but I sure hope you continue to updates because you make this stuff so funny.

As for the conversation, I love that. Especially since you had to turn on the TV to figure out what day it was. I have had days like that.

How is it possible that AFTER you showed Sean your knickers you all were STILL able to continue this conversation?

At my house, the dropping of trou always leads to . . . well, not to a discussion of what day it is, let me tell you. Of course, we have kids, so trou is dopped very very seldom. Sigh.

I had days of the week knickers/panties/underwear when I was younger but I haven't seen them since. (Not as in I lost them at the age of 8 and am still looking for them). I had no idea you could still get them let alone for an adult..... perhaps I shall purchase some for the lovely S who linked us to your site. Very humourous site, I really enjoyed the naked lady and the dog entry. (Man, that sounds so wrong!)

IS there a Sunday pair? (Not to get too personal or anything.) When I was a kid I was told they didn't make a pair for Sunday because as a holy day you weren't supposed to be thinking about underwear or something. Um, what? Even at 6 y/o that didn't make sense but I'm sure I just put on some Underoos and got on with it. Then, a few years ago, I found the cutest days-of-the-week in Target or somewhere, and sure enough, there were only six. Every day accounted for but Sunday! I've never heard of it any other way!

I'm still recovering from waking up this morning and honestly truly believing it was Saturday and yelling at J because he had the alarm going off. I was so heartbroken to find out I had to get up and go to work.

So glad I'm not the only one who figures out what day it is by turning on the TV! No days of the week undies for me.

Anyone else remember that scene in When Harry Met Sally when Sally tells Harry about the guy that broke up with her because he was suspicious of her lack of Sunday underpants? "Where's Sunday? Where did you leave Sunday?" "And I told him they didn't make Sunday." "Why not?" "Because of God."

I love this blog!

Elizabeth: YES! I've been trying to figure that out all day! When Harry Met Sally - OF COURSE!
Thanks. You've put my mind at rest.

I love how, rather than looking at a calendar or your planner or something, you TURN ON THE TV to see what day of the week it is. (And how trusting of you! What if NBC had decided to show Scrubs every night this week???)

Anyway, glad you got the confusion straightened out. All the more reason to go out for drinks. Hooray!

Today is Friday. Are you wearing the proper knickers? If not, please go home and change NOW. And then lay out Saturday's pair for tomorrow, JUST IN CASE.

I only had six days in my Days of the Week undies too, with Sunday conspicuously absent. Also, I think I heard an urban-myth type tale about some guy breaking up with his girlfriend because of her DOTW knickers. Seems he didn't believe she didn't HAVE Sunday pantaloons so accused her of coming straight from her Saturday assignation to taunt him with her pecadillo.

Oh, and hi. This is me trying not to be a bloody chicken. I've been enjoying your journal for several months now. :)

See, that just proves you're a clean girl who changed knickers more than daily. I mean, it would be worse to be caught out with Monday's knickers come Wednesday, wouldn't it?

Oh, I love weekday knickers, by the way!

That's hilarious! Not to make you feel bad or anything but my five year old always puts on the right day - once I gave her the wrong pair and had to endure eye rolling and head shaking from the little stinker.

And now I'm going right to her underwear drawer when I get home because I swear there's a Sunday pair! I don't remember that part of When Harry Met Sally . . . and I myself never had day-of-the-week panties. I was so not cool enough for that - my mom made me wear white Carters. I think. But I don't really remember so maybe it's not fair for me to accuse my mom of such abuse.

Anyway - happy weekend! Hope you get your knickers straight!

if they made days-of-the-week underpants in little-boy's-styles...i'd totally be there. you should try them sometime - they're the most comfortable things i've ever worn. the best is wearing them to a formal function and looking people in the eye knowing you got something naughty on underneath. with a train-print.
i love your blog, as i've said, many a time. i just wish you had as much time as i seem to and would post more.

I think this means you can just leave them on -- for another 24 hours.
Is that icky?
Sometimes I'm icky.

Hi,

I have no idea how you found my blog, and I feel kind of bad for you (there are only about four billion blogs that are more entertaining), but I'm really glad you did, cuz I've laughed so hard at your last couple of entries I think I actually broke something. Or at least strained something. Can't tell for sure yet.

So, hi!

I have a query! Are your days of the week knickers resistant against jet lag? For example what if you wore them on the plane on a Sunday night and then went to like Japan or something and when you got off the plane it was only Sunday morning. Would you continue wearing them throughout the day??
