A 911 Call to the Panty Fashion Police

Yes, the book which I have another zillion words left to write is due in 7 days. Yes, I'm supposed to be working on it (and I am!). But there are some things that can jolt the writer in me right out of the moment. Like ...

I'm sitting here -- yes, yes, at another coffee shop -- staring into space while I wait for the next burst of inspiration to strike. In walks this girl with low-riding pants that reveal a good three inches of her panties.

Excuse me. But, isn't the whole point of this panty exposure thing to entice viewers with a sneak peek at attractive panties? Last I checked, briefs (notice I did not say THONG) with 2-inch wide dingy white elastic and red hearts on a now-gray-used-to-be-white background are NOT attractive.

Am I alone here, or is this sight enough to ruin any erotic romance writer's spurt of creativity ?

Shame on her! Now, if only your editor would take this as a viable excuse for a deadline extension... :-)

Calista, you are a genius! I am going to email my editor right now ... *g*

LMAO...I don't understand the whole showing your undies thing to begin with, but showing your nasty ass undies, ICK.

I gotta agree with Bella here--Panties and Bra straps were not meant to be seen period! =(

Yeah, the whole show-your-undies-thing is a mystery to me.

Amie, I have to admit that the visible bra strap thing has grown on me. Not that I think it's attractive, but I like not having to fiddle with my straps to make sure they're not showing all the time.

But I DO NOT wear my bras that have the lint balls stuck to the elastic or, worse, have the stretched out frayed elastic. I save my good bras for the bra-strap-showing days. LOL

I just came from my son's football game and *LOL* there was this woman in front of me in a white tank top and her pink (twisted up knotted) bra strap was distracting me the whole time. And it was HOT pink!

ROFLMAO, Amie! See how distracting it was? Bet you couldn't concentrate on the game!

Yuck. It's enough to drive you home to type, Rachelle. Good luck with that deadline!

Thanks so much, Edie!

I'm with Amie. Underwear has the word 'under' in it for a reason :)

Great point, Michelle. :-)
