The other morning, I was supposed to meet a friend when she called to say she would be late.
“My son left his girdle at home so I need to take it to school,” she explained. “He needs it because they have a game today.”
Inferring that it had something to do with football, I asked her to explain it to me when we finally met up. “It’s like spandex shorts with padding on the thighs and hips. Football players wear it under their uniform for protection.”
Hmm…interesting. Football players wear girdles to pad the hips and thighs. Ladies wear girdles to minimize those areas. I guess that’s why there aren’t many women playing football.
