Dr. Pratfall II: Revenge of the Fallen

Just in case you were wondering - and I'm sure you were - I buy my underwear at discount stores like Marshall's or TJ Maxx. I buy whatever is cheap and in boxer-brief format, which means my underwear drawer is a hodgepodge of strange brands, odd colors, and factory irregulars. This normally isn't an issue or a concern, but today I made a return visit to Dr. Pratfall (see below) for a followup.

He was much more focused today, and his eyes almost seemed to be looking in the same direction most of the time. But for some reason unknown to me, the nurse made me strip down to my underwear for the examination. As I waited for the doctor to come in, I just happened to look down and notice that the underwear I was wearing had no front-flap. No escape hatch. This was atypical for boxer briefs in general, but like I said, my underwear drawer has a few odd ducks. I reached behind me to doublecheck to make sure I could feel the care-instructions tag on the back of the elastic band, just to make sure I hadn't put them on backwards, but everything was in its right place, so I thought nothing of it.

After the examination, I stood up to put my clothes back on and just happened to turn around to see my backside in a mirror - and there it was. The front-flap on my back side, and the care-instructions tag. It seems that the irregularity in these particular factory cast-offs was that the tags were put on the front instead of the back, and in my haste to get dressed that morning I had given only a cursory glance to the positioning of my undergarment. "Tag goes in back" is what I have been trained to believe. But this is only the case with factory regulars, apparently.

I have no idea if the nurse or the doctor or anyone else noticed that I was wearing my underwear backwards, but considering how there was absolutely no need for me to be in my underwear in the first place and that I had just described his embarassing pratfall in vivid detail on my public blog just a week prior, I figured Karma was just being a big ol' bitch again.

And just in case you were curious: I have a sinus infection.

The only two people to ever make me laugh out loud to the point of asphyxiation are you and David Sedaris. You are seriously funny. Though I do have to wonder if you have a very bizarre life or just find the humour in everyday events more than the rest of us. Keep it up!

Funny you should mention the neti pot...

I don't know about you, but some guys I know would find a properly-positioned rear fly quite thrilling!
