Over at the Dayton Daily News, Kelli Wynn’s got an interesting article about the surprises found in underwear drawers:
Lucille “Aunt Cile” Hickman-Herald of Trotwood left more than personal items in her lingerie drawer when she passed away in August 2008 at the age of 95.
She left a bundle of newspaper clippings and periodicals that told the history of her family, Dayton and African-Americans.
It’s not all that surprising to me because our undie drawers are like our nightstand drawers — and sometimes our nightstand drawers are our undie drawers: we keep all sorts of private, intimate things in there.
It’s all about access.
Proximity to our beds… Proximity to our private needs… Our intimate physical and emotional needs. And desires.
And it’s also about who doesn’t have the access.
Once I had my first kid walking about the house, I started keeping special things in my drawer of delicates. My paper planner, my address book — things I feared she might mistake as “just paper” and color on or something. I just knew she wouldn’t want to look at momma’s underpants!
The family has continued to grow (as has my lingerie collection!) but nobody goes near my lingerie drawers. (Well, hubby might… He swears he doesn’t, but I have my suspicions lol) Anyway, none of the kids want to go near mom & dad’s undies, so stuff stored along with our underpants is also avoided.
Because those drawers are off limits, I started keeping other unmentionables in my panty drawers. …My
vibrator vibrators, erotica, dirty magazines, porn videos, anything private that didn’t have any real monetary value went in there… (No jewelry etc. because I figured that robbers & burglars would check the nightstand and undie drawers first — and I wasn’t going to help them. In fact, the plethora of pornographic objects ought to delay them long enough for the calvary to arrive. And then, even though they likely won’t have arrived via horseback, they’ll be mounted police. Heh Heh.)
Anyway, blog readers, I wonder what you keep in your undie drawers, in your nightstands…
