While watching the talent show at school yesterday I was enjoying the entertainment with a fellow female teacher when a parent came and sat near her child. When she squatted down she exposed about a 6 inch gap of flesh and right there above her jean line was THE THONG. I simply turned to my colleague and said, "Didn't expect a show like that." She acknowledged that she was a victim of the thong also. When I glanced back at the students near me one boy was looking at me as if to say, "Did you see that!" I simply shrugged during that one second of eye contact and looked away.
Are thongs the female equivalent to muscle shirts? Is it a matter of comfort and preference or is there unwritten rules for who should wear them? There aren't too many men who should wear a muscle shirt in public, me being one of them. You should be in decent shape if you are going to wear a tight fitting muscle shirt in public. Is it the same for thongs? Should you be between certain ages to wear a thong? Should your size or shape determine if you should wear one?
It is only fitting that I had a thong experience at the end of the year. The first week of school during a team building activity I got to find out which 8 staff members were wearing thongs. We were playing the game, "I would like to meet someone who is........." and whoever was it would add something like "wearing a thong." Anyone who fit the category had to get up and find a new chair. The last person standing got to do the new tag line.
