Culture Shock

11 Apr

I stopped in Target today to grab some pantyhose and watched a young woman near me select several very nice bras. Real Victoria’s Secret sort of items. I probably wouldn’t have noticed if it hadn’t been for her hijab.

You just never know about these things.

    I went through a phase during my first two years in the Marines where I deliberately wore the most violently colored and lacy underthings that I could find (the Corps issues underclothing only to men). I’m not sure what prompted it and I soon reverted back to comfortable/machine-washable.

      I have an Amish girlfriend, and one day I arrived for a visit while she was taking down her laundry. Same thing – plain black on the outside, but bright red and royal blue on the inside.
