Me: "Hey, which side of the diagonal does the red go on the Union Jack?"
Paul: (consulting his t-shirt)
"I think red comes first clockwise. Why?"
Me: "Oh, I'm making some undies... "
Paul: "Nice tailoring. Tim Gunn would be proud."
I'm off to a lingerie party/shower at Va Va Voom tomorrow for our friend Jessy, who is getting married next month to Paul's good friend Marc, who is English. I want her to be able to get something she picks out at the party, but I have this problem where I can't just give someone a gift certificate...I want there to be a little something to open. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find union jack undies in the US! OK, maybe I'm the only person who doesn't believe it. I ran across some online the other day, but didn't have time for the shipping from the UK. But nothing else would satisfy. And so my first foray into making underwear was a success. You are very welcome, Marc!
