And I really was happy. And I think the other ladies were too. I don't know their reasons (although I do believe that this instance provided a moment of normalcy, which is one of the things you most miss when you are ill. Here we were, just a group of 40 or 50 something ladies, giggling and getting excited about a silly thing like underwear. Yoo hoo! We were NORMAL!). But, in my case, this was also a moment of lightness, of fun, of adventure, even, as I had never given importance to my underwear.
All right, so I think that maybe I just must have added some symbolic meaning to the underwear. It gave me power, the power to be healthy, or at least to think and act like I was. A bit like Superman's cape but in reverse. Not supernatural powers, but just natural.
OK, but what about the rest of you? Most of the people who read this blog don't have an illness (I do believe I know all of you, love you all, and thanks once more for reading, you always make me happy) but I still think the tip applies to everyone. Underwear is not too expensive and it's kind of fun to buy, so the experience itself may be good. But also, you can, as we have seen, attach any meaning to it, and because it is hidden, it does feel like you have those special powers right there, just in case they may be needed.
