I am not sure it is related to aging, per se, but as I have gotten older I have lost my derriere. It used to be there and I took it for granted, but now I have nothing to hang my pants on. Sure, I can tighten my belt, which I do, or I could wear suspenders, but until recently I didn’t really think much about the problem of my lost derriere.
Last week I played golf for the first time in twelve years. My golf game was as bad as you would think but I expected that. What I didn’t expect was the problem of the reverse wedgie. On most golf courses you are expected to wear shorts that have a belt and a tucked-in golf shirt that has a collar. I don’t know why. That is just the way it is.
The shorts, belt, and shirt were no problem, but my boxer shorts became an unexpected problem. Maybe because of the heat and the sweating, but mostly because of the absent derriere, my boxer shorts began to slide off my rear end and wound up bunched up around my skinny thighs. The reverse or anti-wedgie. It wasn’t a problem anyone else could detect but it was distracting for me. Finally, I had to tell my friend Ronnie to avert his eyes because I had had a wardrobe malfunction that I needed to fix.
I never saw that problem coming.Published in
