warning: senseless ranting

today i got a nice little card in the mail from victoria's secret. how nice. they're giving me a gift.
come in and redeem your free panty they say.
panty.
i take offense to this word. panty.
especially in the singular form--it's so skeevy. panties is gross and prissy still. but panty? seriously? i imagine threadbare jockey underware double the size of my head. dull peach.
since when is panty a victoria's secret kind of word? since when does panty make you feel sexy? hey babe, i just got a new panty at victoria's secret--don't you want me now?

some words should just be banished from our vocabulary on the grounds of the shivers they send up my spine. panty, you can go take a hike in the woods and get lost! and you know what? take spore with you too.

We call 'em panties in this house! :)

I am with you! Panties creeps me out to. How about underwear, or even undies?

That word can join my list of dislikable things, for example, mayonnaise and eggplant.

Kitty, I think ranting about things such as underwear is a sure-fire way to get your readership commenting!
