Mortification

On a more positive note...hair shirts and various other saintly mortification devices are not necessary today. For those of you who like to keep abreast of modern underclothing and footwear design you may have noticed that we are already "wired" for this. All we have to do is offer it up!

Yes, I'm bored.

  1. I'm laughing out loud. I always thought that "wires" were a torture device. I never thought that they could be tools for sanctification. If I ever wear them again, I can offer it up.

  2. I don't wear them by choice, they became "not an option" after I had my daughter. Do you know something that I don't know?

  3. Ehmmm ... I don't know where to start ... or what to say ... (Thinks).

    Ah ... clutter ... you were talking about clutter and how we gather things we don't need.

    In the UK you can now hire extra rooms where you can keep all your clutter. There are these big buildings (sometimes out of town) where you hire a room (different sizes) and you can store your old furniture, various items and things you don't use that often. The rooms (or large boxes) are locked and completely safe and you can hire them for as long as you want.

    I wonder if they're full of bras!!!

    Sorry ... your last three posts got me thinking.

  4. Okay....

    This was an interesting post.

    Needed to read this for Sonday morning dear one. Made me smile.

    Do they still make them with wires? I remember they could rust at one point if you are one that sweats a lot. Hee hee....

  5. Kudos to you, Victor! I didn't think a man would have the ...er...guts? to comment on this post!
    Funny! Funny! Funny!
    I know all about those storage containers ;)

    I'm beginning to realize that my personal clutter is a reflection of my mental clutter. The name of the place I store my excess baggage is "Uncle Bob's SELF-storage". Seriously.

  6. JBR,
    I thought it was just phones that were wireless now? Does everyone know something that I don't? ;)
    I hope your day is wonderful my friend :)

    I do sweat too much!

  7. They do make wireless bras that are still supposed to support like the underwire ones! :)

    I have one and it's really comfy

  8. Allison,
    I'm going to find one this week :) Yes, I'm serious. The wires really do bother me.

  9. I found wirefree bras at Target. Also BJs used to sell three-packs of wire-free bras. If all else fails, check out the nursing bras because the majority of those are wire-free.

    Back before I had babies, the underwire bras were unpopular but they fit me a lot better than the regular ones. Nowadays they're all underwire and underwires aren't comfortable for me any longer. Go figure. :-)

  10. I've been told that you get good radio reception with the wires because they act like an antenna.

    But then ... what do I know?

  11. This is so funny! I hate wearing bras because with my fibro I can't stand tight fitting clothes. Lately, with the warm weather, they have been making me itch. Yup. Mortification by undergarments.

  12. Jane,
    Well I guess I'm the only person who still hasn't figured this out yet ;) Thanks for the info.

  13. Victor,
    You can get electrocuted during a thunderstorm too! It's like holding a key up ;)

  14. Barb,
    They bother me as much now as before when I was sick! Maybe I better step on the scale or something.

  15. OK, you guys gotta stop! I can't stop laughing. I knew Mary's sense of humor but gee, Victor, you are too funny as well! Lord, have mercy!

  16. Colleen,
    Victor is always like this! He cracks my husband, sister, and brother up, too. Besides, the post DID start out holy...it was about mortification I'll have you know;)

    I have to admit it worked. I'm mortified.
