Thong Diary: Frugal Thoughts

Well, I am, without a doubt, the cheapest—err most frugal—person I know. So I never spent much on underthings. Like a lot of women, I find much women's underwear VERY uncomfortable, misery-making, in fact. A colleague suggested I do as she does—wear her hubby's boxer briefs. So I did. She was right; men's boxer briefs are very comfy. I scored about 20 after a bunch of new ones were donated to Habitat for Humanity post-Katrina. They were a quarter! I was set for life.

A few weeks ago, another colleague took me aside and whispered that my men's boxer briefs were showing. Since we are professors, this might be mirth-inducing for the students.

Like all teachers, I did the research and discovered your large cadre of devotees. However, I scoffed at the testimonials and tried some cheap knock-offs. VERRRRY uncomfortable.

Then I ordered my daughter a gift from a tony store and added ONE PAIR of the original lace thongs (since it didn't add to shipping! Very frugal!). Well, now I am a convert. I wash my single pair out EVERY NIGHT.

I am going to get a few more soon. I figure if I have 4 @ 18 dollars=72 dollars. Hey! That's only $6.00/month. That's only 20 cents a day! Don't all the frugalistas say to consider cost per wear?

Thanks for a great product.

Thong Diary: Salute Your Hanky Panky Panties!

Dear Hanky Panky,

My fiancé and I have been together for three years and he has grown to love Hanky Panky just as much as I do (he has no other choice)! He is currently in the United States Air Force on a Special Duty Assignment where his Command travels around the country and even overseas almost 200 days a year.

One evening before a 2 month deployment, he said, "Let me pick a pair of ‘Pank’s’ to take with me." I instantly lit up but couldn't decide which pair I could part with!

It is now a tradition; every time he leaves for a trip he picks a different pair of my Hanky Panky thongs and packs 'em in his suitcase! Yes, I have over 50 pairs of HP’s! My undies have seen more of the world than I have but they are certainly safe with my Airman! :)

Love,
CM
Alexandria, VA

P.S. He starts off every "Skype Date" we have with the pair of "Pank's" that he picked…on his head.
