The things you find

17 Dec

Petticoats! Six of them.

Soft and cool and heavy in my hands.

Does anybody wear them anymore?

And when did I?

    I do. Under some unlined skirts. And camisoles. Silky ones. I like the feel.

    I dont.

    But maybe I should?

    I’ve seen some who definitely should.

    If they are soft and cool and heavy in your hands it sounds like they are silk and if it were me I’d buy some thin skirts to wear them with.

    Or they make good nighties if they are the body-inclusive ones.

    Or damn fine costumes for small children.

    Oh, I know, Adders….. Mum *still* hasn’t got over her shock from over twenty years ago when I decided I didn’t want to wear them again.

    Pen’s right too – old ones make good fairy outfits, and black ones are brilliant for Halloween witches.

    I could not mourn their passing.
