Heard Today

Below see transcript of actual conversation during our hike around Lake Tekapo:

Me:  Diesel, do you see my VPL?

Diesel:  What’s that?

Me:  Visible PantyLine (I clarified, wearing my leggings). Ya know, a term coined by the famed William Sledd, YouTube fashion guru extraordinaire.

Diesel:  Hmm, let me see.  Turn around.

(inspecting)

Diesel:  Well, not really, but if you lift up your jacket, you can.

Me:  Oh, shucks.

Diesel:  That’s ok. You’re old…so it doesn’t matter

  1. Ha ha. It’s true, no one looks at women over 35 years old… 🙂

  2. So NOT true, Uncle David!!
    Become a ‘thong’ girl and you will never have a panty lines 🙂

  3. As a woman of 37, I can say I still get looks of like. And have seen first hand that Rebecca, a ripe old 41, definitely still gets them!
