What Do You Call Your Underwear?
Knickers Down Today Ladies!
To make some extra money when I was a teenager, a very long time ago, I got myself a part time job setting up stall and selling shoes in an open air market. Every Saturday without fail I was there rain, hail or snow, well I do live in Scotland and that is our typical weather.
Anyway to cut a long story short, the lady on the next market stall sold ladies underwear and to attract customers to her wares every few minutes she would scream at the top of her voice, " Knickers down today ladies," Women and men especially would stop in their tracks and look around to see what was going on here, until the lady on the next stall followed her initial call out with "All ladies knickers half price today, Three pairs for a knicker," A knicker is a slang term for £1.00.
So anyway when this came into my mind today I was struck by the thought that we all wear underwear on a daily basis but we all have different names for the items that we wear beneath our regular clothes.
