If I fall overboard I will not be ashamed of my undies

Mary Beth and I leave for the Ultimate Scrapbooking Cruise in just two days, and I have done very little in the way of preparation. I did however feel the need to purchase all new underwear, an impulse which is puzzling to me because I doubt that MB (or anyone else for that matter) will even see my drawers.

I think it's something to do with the old saying about wearing clean underwear in case you're in an accident, but I watch a LOT of true crime shows on TV and I have never once heard the forensics experts remark on the condition of a victim's undergarments unless it was directly related to the case. At least now I know that I will not be the first.

Ah, the importance of good underwear. If I was attacked by a shark and nothing was left of me but the waistband of my underwear, I would want that waistband to be perfectly lovely, so I totally understand where you're coming from. :)

Have a GREAT trip. We'll really miss you.
