My Gay-Gay, in a famous piece of family lore, ditched her girdle in the ladies room at the officer’s club in Okinawa, Japan, while my grandfather was stationed there.
Clearly, we are a family who is not into rubber slips. But I survived, and I’m going to be honest–I’ll probably hang onto them for special occasions. They work, which makes me hate them, but I, being vain and shallow, also enjoy the attention the bring me. And the good posture.
