I detest the word 'panties'.
It makes me physically ill.
If we must talk about womens underwear, which being a prim and proper private school girl myself, I don't really like to do, I prefer the word knickers. Or undies.
My friends and I did an impromptu survey of this last year, after a few drinks. Turns out the world (aka The Murdoch Student Village population who happened to be walking around the Village on Mudrock night and deigned to speak to 3 very intoxicated screaming girls) is fairly divided on this issue.
What do you call womens underwear?
What do you call mens underwear? There isn't as big an issue here though, because they are either jocks or boxers.
Short post tonight - I did a 20km (12 mile) bike ride this afternoon and I am SO tired!
