‘NOW DEAR, MAKE SURE YOUR WEARING MATCHING UNDERWEAR, IN CASE YOU GET HIT BY A BUS’!!!
So your mum tells you that you should always be wearing matching underwear incase you get hit by a bus…and you just casually disregard that comment, thinking its never going to happen….is it?
Growing up, I never really took this too seriously, but now when I think about it, in a weird kinda way my mum really did have my back! Mothers out there really do have their daughters’ best interests at heart. Following an unfortunate encounter with a bus, you would be most likely to come across an ‘eligible, young, smart’ DR who earns mega-bucks, to attend to you. So – you would want to make a good first impression, wouldn’t you?
Well I can say that I am a person who had a very unfortunate encounter with a vehicle, which resulted in my hospitalization. The most important question to ask is……was I wearing matching underwear that day…..?
And could I remember for the life of me? No ‘sir-ree’ I could not! I guess there were more pressing issues to consider at the time!
But a few years on, when I finally came round to sorting through the clinical disposable bag containing the blood-sodden clothes I was wearing on that day……. I was horrified and dismayed to learn that my underwear (which was indeed matching) was shredded!! The paramedics, in their haste to save my life, had cut not only through my rather snazzy suit, but also my expensive matching underwear!
What can I say? Well at least I was wearing perfectly matching panties and a bra…whether or not any Drs noticted!!
