Advice my mother never gave me

When you were a kid did your mother ever say to you "Always wear clean underwear in case you get into an accident."? Mine never did.

That's why yesterday when I got dressed I thought nothing of putting on my oldest, rattiest pair of underwear.

It's funny then isn't it, that as I climbed into the ambulance last night after our car was rear-ended at a stop light my first thought was "Oh no! Everyone is going to see my grundgy underwear!"

Long story short, everyone is ok. Jesse is ok, the kids are ok, the baby is ok, the car is ok, the 21 year old that hit us probably learned a valuable lesson about not paying so much attention to your car radio when you're pulling up to a stoplight, I have a pinched nerve in my lower back that a couple of days of rest and painkillers should take care of and despite being seen on the labor and delivery floor and the emergancy room, not s single person saw my ratty underwear. And now they're in the trash.

Oh my God!
Glad to hear you and the fam and the baby are okay and the undies are in the trash.
I thought you were always supposed to wear clean underwear in case of random, unexpected sex? Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part.

Ditto on gladness to hear everyone's okay! I have to go review my underwear inventory now.

What if you were to have random, unexpected sex with a paramedic following a car crash? If you were so full of the joy of being alive or something. Would it need to be EXTRA clean? Would I only be able to do that in the morning, when my underwear is at its freshest?

Ahem. Anyway. Glad you're ok. Speaking on behalf of my job, make sure that you get your neck thoroughly examined by your doctor.

I am so glad you are okay. Truly.

Mom mentioned it to me. Right after I opened up the Pinpression at Christmas.

Ben said...

You probably didn't hear though, you were too busy cleaning the bathroom.

Jen said...

Bem, I'm suprised you were able to hear the advice over the sounds of the Weird Al tape mom and dad gave you.

An interesting side note to this story - the EMT that rode in the ambulance with me was insanly hot and yes, I was worried that he would have to take my pants off for some reason and that he would be the first in a long line of people to see my ratty underwear. Somehow the idea that a hot guy would see my old underwear just made it that much worse.
