Older, Wiser

Not to get all bloggy on you, but:  summer is here and I have had to re-think all my underpants. To wit, I’ve realized that boxer-briefs–so flattering to the middle-aged gentleman’s silhouette–are, for this middle-aged gentleman, total knicker-twisters during the warmer months. I’m reminded of those very long kneesocks that are a feature of the male mail-carrier’s summer uniform–the ones that are a kneesock and a turtleneck.

Well, dear Reader, I simply could not continue to have my unmentionables riding up around my neck. So I’m back on old-school boxers. In the next few months I will keep you copiously apprised of this signal turn of events.
