If It Ain't Broke...

...don't fix it!

When will I ever learn?

I've been wearing Jockey underwear for as long as I can remember. I noticed a few months ago that some of my old tighty whities were starting to look a little worn, so I decided that I'd pick up a new supply during my last trip to Chicago. For whatever reason, when I went to the department store, I decided to get all fancy and buy a bunch of different brands - none of them Jockey. I bought some Polo/Ralph Lauren, 2(x)ist, and Emporio Armani.

The Armani underwear is great. Of course, at $25 each, THEY SHOULD BE!! Am I stuck in about 1977? I think men's briefs should still be something like 3 for $10. The Polo underwear is not bad either. However...

The 2(x)ist underwear has got to be the worst underwear ever made. I'm not sure what body type they've designed this underwear for, but it seems to me that it would fit me much better if I were lacking a rear end AND a scrotum. Sheesh! Talk about uncomfortable! Naturally, that's the underwear I bought the most of. Double-sheesh! I just threw it all in the garbage. That's right! I don't even want to look at it!!!

Next time, I'm just going to do what I've always done: I'm going to order Jockey underwear on the internet, have it sent to my mother-in-law's house, and have it waiting for me when I get to Chicago. Unfortunately, I won't be back in Chicago until October which means that I'm hoping my current supply holds up until then. Either that, or...

I'm gonna be goin' commando!
