I hate pantyhose......really HATE them. I am a flip-flop girl to the core!!! Dave knows this and while picking up some prescriptions for Alyssa he found this:

(notice the cute little flip-flops in the corner?)

Now those of you that live in Eagle Mountain will understand the significance of this statement! Those that don't.....just trust me.....this is funny! The little plaque came with a cute little "explanation card" It reads

I can't think of anything
More uncomfortable,
Claustrophobic or irritating
Than a pair of pantyhose.
Whoever invented them
Either hated women,
Was into sadistic torture,
Or, at the very least
Never tried a pair on themselves.

I'd rather have a root canal
Than shimmy and shake myself into a pair,
Much less proceed to wear them all day.
It doesn't help that such stockings
Are usually associated with some sort of
Confining, unyielding, contoured shoe
That squeezes the life out of my feet.
Besides, how can I show off a new pedicure,
Tiny toe rings and funky flip-flops
If I'm squeezed into
Such a ridiculous contraption?
Life is just too short to wear pantyhose!

So, everytime I put a pair of the awful things on I will think of this! SERIOUSLY......isn't it the truth!!!

I don't even own a pair and probably never will. I say, break the rules!!!!!

Kim said...

Ha ha. Your passionate distaste just proves how obedient you are.

Sadly (or not so sadly)I have been with out for a few weeks because my last pair ran, and I somehow kept forgetting to pick up a new pair. Ha ha. DARN

I'm a flip flop girl through and through, even in the snow. I love the plaque!!!

The question is how are we going to sneak that into Pres. Draper's office.......... Love it!

Michele said...

Ah-ha-ha! I am laughing so hard right now! I love it! So very true! I don't like them either! :D

Melissa said...

:) Yes, this is why I don't follow the rule.

Kim Rose said...

I love it! Life is too short to worry about what others are wearing as well.. just my thought... so glad I live here:)
Love you!

Laurie said...

I guess I'm in the minority - I love them! They suck everything in and make it all smooth....a girl needs all the help she can get.

And for the record, that rule IS totally an Eagle Mountain thing. I must say that I heard all kinds of "guidelines" there that I've NEVER heard anywhere else....I'd like to see them announce something like that at General Conference. HA! Would never happen.

Kudos for your hubby for getting it for you!
