“Really? I mean REALLY?” I hear you ask.. and the answer is, “Yes, really..”
I really did find my knickers on the office floor.
Well, first and foremost, if I might set the record straight. I am not in the habit of throwing my knickers around – neither in the office or at home, and so the question as to how they managed to end up on the floor loomed large.
But shock, horror – there they were, staring back at me. My knickers!
But first, lets be grateful for small mercies. At least it was ME that found them. (God, the thought!)
I swooped in on my prey with the speed and dexterity of an accomplished shop lifter and beat a hasty retreat to my desk.
A quick pat down revealed that I was actually wearing underwear, so those that I had quickly squirrelled away into the confines of my handbag were obviously not the same ones that I had left the house wearing earlier in the day.
And yet the ones I had rescued from the floor were most definitely mine. How on earth did THAT happen?
Then it dawned on me.
The weather the day before had been glorious. Clear blue skies and frosty conditions. Perfect for Northern Light viewing later on that night.
Just before leaving the office I had ‘phoned Mr X (husband) to ask if he fancied prepping our hot tub in readiness for the coming evening’s relaxation plan.
Once home and having taken a shower, I then donned my cossie and legged it outside to embark on one of life’s greatest pleasures. A dip in a hot tub filled to the brim with geothermal water, chilled white wine in hand, husband at side and the most amazing northern light show overhead. I truly am blessed and I know it.
The next morning I scooped up my clothes – amongst them the same pair of trousers that I had worn to work the day before and had removed (along with said underwear) ahead of my pre hot tub shower.
It seems that my knickers, having found themselves rudely stuffed down a trouser leg the night before, had decided to work their way down that same trouser leg before making a bid for freedom and escaping onto the office floor.
I’m not even sure there is a moral to this story to be honest. It was just one of those bizarre things that happened to me and one that I felt compelled to share with you.
As such I do feel I should warn you though that there are probably more posts to come in this genre, as this is just the kind of thing that always seems to happen to me.
You have been warned.
Stand by, stay tuned and have a great day!
