Nonsense Post

I got tagged by the lovely Nancy S. Thompson for this meme. I debated whether or not to take it up, and decided there was some potential for humor here. You can decide if I succeeded or not.

1. What do you call your drawers?
Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?
I think that is the nickname.
2. Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your bloomers?
No, but as a child I would sometimes dream
I had absolutely nothing on. 
However, in the typical way of childhood, that didn't trouble me. 
Now? At my age it's best to cover up as much as possible.

3. What is the worst thing you can think of to make long johns out of?
Wool. Absolutely wool. It would itch like crazy.

4. If you were a pair of small clothes, what color would you be, and WHY?
Green. Definitely green. It's my favorite color. 
But I must admit these pirate long johns are quite stylish.

5. Have you ever thrown your bloomers at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your bloomers at, given the opportunity?
Please! Such a waste of fabric! It costs so much to sew anymore. 
To say nothing about being vulgar and unrefined.

6. You’re out of clean drawers. What do you do?
Um, wash them. Duh!

7. Are you old enough to remember Underoos? If so, did you have any? Which ones?
Ah, yes, Underoos. My older children wore them.

8. If you could have any message printed on your long johns, what would it be?
These days, the options are endless. Eve Gaal over at The Desert Rocks and I emailed about this since she got tagged, too, and I like what her brother suggested:
Save Your Soul

9. How many bloggers does it take to put small clothes on a goat?
Zero, since we're in the cybersphere rather than real life.
I close with the lyrics that I used for Week 6 of Poetry Summer here
from a song we sang at Girl Scout Camp in the Philippines.

Long Johns
author unknown
sung to the tune of Bye Bye Blackbird (corrected from original post)

I have lost my underwear.
I don't care; I'll go bare.
Bye bye, long johns.

They were very close to me
Tickle me. He he he.
Bye bye, long johns

If you see them you'll know where to find me
With my bare bum stickin' out behind me.

I have lost my underwear.
I don't care; I'll go bare.
Long johns, bye bye.

  Like cyberchocolate that has no fat and no calories, it also has no taste. Just like this meme.
Now I'm supposed to share the wealth, so to speak, and have others give their thoughts about  their unmentionables. 

Hmmm ... who don't I like? 

Just kidding! I won't be the least bit offended if any of you don't take this up.

So, did I make you smile? Or just roll your eyes and shake your head? 

Hey, I titled it Nonsense Post. You were warned.


  1. Hee hee! This was a cute post, Donna. And man, if I had known there was Princess Leia Underoos I would have worn them!

  2. Oh, my. Must stop drinking coffee whilst reading your posts. Too funny! My nickname for drawers is pantaloons.

  3. Loved the questions but I loved your answers even more and also the verse,

    Enjoy your day.

  4. Way to keep it clean, Donna. I loved all the pics. No, not another underwear poem! I still haven't gotten the last one out of my head. :)

  5. I'd love to take the challenge... but can't think of any answers that are better than yours! Might just link to you.... :)

  6. I totally got some laughs out of the post:)

    Who doesn't love a post all about underwear?

  7. a post all about underwear, how undieful! ha ha =)

  8. Ha! Silly questions, hilarious answers :) I might have to take you up on doing this meme tomorrow!

  9. HA! I love it! And thank you for tagging me. This is gonna be fun!

  10. I have accepted your challenge! It was fun and somewhat thought provoking. Okay, maybe not, but still fun. Thanks for tagging me!

  11. I sing that Underwear song all the time but I don't sing it to Bye, Bye, Birdie (in fact I tried to, as BBB is one of my favorites but I just couldn't make it fit ;) and in the very last line I sing "Long Johns, Bye-Bye!" at the top of my lungs.
    Yep, I'm that mature.

  12. I did a little checking and here's a youtube video of the long john song. Starts about 25 seconds in, in case anyone wants to know the tune. =D

  13. I would have loved those X-Wing Pilot underoos as a kid!

    Yes. This post made me smile, and laugh.

  14. Wool? Oh my goodness! That would be terrible. If this were Family Feud, I think you might take the top answer with that one. Yikes! :) Fun post, Donna!

  15. hahaha!

    I enjoyed the poem most.

    ps my favorite color is green, too!

    pps I left you an award on my blog. I don't think you really qualified for it, but I had to. :D

  16. Donna, I can see a lot of your followers are very excited about your post and can't wait to write their own small clothes post. Congratulations on doing a great job with this! Oh and I'll have to let my brother know we used his line!

  17. I am glad you took her up on the offer… that was a great read!

  18. I agree with the woolen long johns comment. YIKES!

  19. lol, so funny.
    The only thing worse than wool would be steel wool ;)

  20. See, that wasn't so tough! And you did it do tastefully, too! Put me to shame, that's for sure. I never realized there were so many names for underwear! Knickers is my personal favorite.

    Great job!

  21. Yes you made me laugh. And guess what Desert Rocks tagged me.

    And you're right it was fun.

    I love the bloomers instead of panties...

    Check out mine.....kt

  22. If I were ever to put small clothes on a goat I would make sure it wasn't anything wool, because that might give him an identity crisis.

  23. You're hysterical :D

    Thanks for the laugh . . .

  24. LOL!! You KNOW I had to visit this post when I saw you actually rose to the challenge. I am shocked that you did, but pleasantly so!!

    This was HILARIOUS!


Comments brighten my day.
