Do Not Iron!

I normally only shop on-line for those hard to find items I need.  My first choice in shopping is always to buy local.  

Before my husband and son went out to Montana they needed some pretty specific clothing and gear.  One of the last things my husband was buying for the trip was, and I know this congers up the wrong image, mesh underwear.  Really it was active, sportswear underwear, but mesh certainly sounds more fun!  It was suggested that all the clothing the boys take be able to breath and dry quickly.  Well, a quick search in town found the perfect underwear at Kohl's.  The problem was...they didn't have my son's size.  

Even if the local stores had the right kind, they didn't carry the proper size. (Editors Note: I am realizing as I write this I am sort of damned if I do and damned if I don't in writing about underwear sizes for men.  Hopefully my kind readers will be laughing with me over this!)  You can guess what happened next, hoping on-line and typing in www.jockey.com took us to our solution.  Two pair of underwear were ordered and arrived in plenty of time for the trip.  If you are curious about the exact type the guys bought go see the Jockey website and search for "men's mesh".  

It's been at least six weeks now since the order was placed which means enough time has passed for us to be put on the Jockey mailing list.  I found it interesting as I was perusing the catalog that arrived over the weekend to see the warning "Do Not Iron" on some underwear.  Click HERE for an example.  It made me laugh because for one thing I did know someone who ironed everything in her household...including her underwear!  And for another thing, who the heck has time to iron underwear?  I also though of another question: Under what conditions is it even necessary to iron underwear?  Anyone care to enlighten me with their thoughts?   I guess I could understand some boxers needing wrinkles removed, but for a woman?  :)

Hi Friend of Krista's! You live in a beautiful part of our country! My boys flew into Great Falls and then stayed and launched from Fort Benton. They spent a week on the Missouri River with 16 other dads/sons/guys. They canoed, camped, hiked and took photos! They had a blast and I enjoyed seeing their recap.

Wow - I like to iron, but I've never ironed underwear! OK, I'm so going to that jockey site! I've got to clear this up so that my active imagination does not take over.

BTW, this was very funny!
