Undie Apocalypse

Post by Hagoth » Thu Jun 18, 2020 10:22 am

I guess my old world ended today and the new era was ushered in.

Mrs. Hagoth and I were stocking up on shelter-in-place supplies at Costco this morning and I said, "maybe it's time for me to buy new underwear," so we detoured the shopping cart through the men's wear isle and I loaded up on t-shirts and boxer briefs. And that was it. No sad eyes or MPA (Mormon Passive Aggression), just sizing advice.

The holey holies just quietly yielded their domain.

Costco brand undies are super comfortable.

You eventually get used to wearing the same brand as your protein shake!

Now you can have the look of a proud Quagaar Warrior!
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Exofficio give-n-go boxer brief 3 pack on amazon. Excellent durable breathable summer underwear. I think the name is kinda ex-mo sounding too. "Ex"official! Haha.

It's been at least 5 years since I asked and you recommended those, Hermey. Now is the coming of that great and far from dreadful day.

It's kinda weird talking to other men about underwear, but not nearly as weird as having to promise men that you're wearing the right kind of underwear when you mow the lawn so you can get their permission to do masonic handshakes in the pretense of being a dead person.

Or realizing your wife wears the exact same underwear as your mom, her mom, her sister, your sister, both grandmas, the lady across the street, and 89% of the ladies in the neighborhood!

Nothing weird about that either.

Ex officio are good.

I'm a fan of the Sheath 4.0 line. You can keep everything separated with no sticking. Changes your, um, profile though.

That's just depressing. Garments are really one of the worst aspects of the church, and as a convert I was completely blindsided by them during temple prep.

I suppose it's my own fault for not doing the research on the church instead of trusting them thought, as the apologists would say.

At least you didn't have to wear one-piecers with the trap door in back. That's what I was wearing when I came home from the temple. Worst night's sleep of my life. You don't notice the elastic waistband until it's gone and then you really miss it. It's hard to believe we were still wearing those things in the late '70s. But then my dad could remember his parents wearing ankle-length garments. That was when they used to kneel for the sacrament prayer and raise both hands over their heads when they prayed. Who says the church isn't progressing?

Yeah, it was a bit faith-shaking to me as a kid.

Is this sorta along the lines of how they did prayer circles outside the temple at stake centers and stuff pre-1970s? Apparently members had prayer groups they belonged to? How does that stuff just get erased to time?

My dad was remembering this from his childhood in a small Southern Utah ward. He said the arms-over-the-head thing was how the "old timers" always prayed in meetings.
