Getting Dressed

It is beyond the pale that, in my forties, I still regularly manage to hook a toe in the waistband of my pants when putting them on and nearly brain myself by falling over.

How can this be? Why have I not gradually learned to do this simple task better? Even allowing for childhood and sock-free days, you'd have to imagine I must have done it over 10,000 times.

Some of you may be saying "Ho, Bazza, why don't you just put your socks on first, instantly reducing the chance of toe hookage to an insignificant risk?". To you I say:
Away with you Satan! Do not try to turn me from the righteous path of pants-first-then-socks with your beguiling yet heretical words.





Also, do you think there's any chance the mention of socks will bring Kurzon back? Or do I have to mention them 7 times while in front of a mirror or something?

I had a sock once.


And I miss Kurzon too.

by "pants" do you mean trousers or undercrackers?

I was being deliberately vague, because while it's usually the banana hammock, it occasionally happens with trousers too.

Sit* whilst putting undergarments on?

* Only to be done after a bath/shower so there's no arse cheese transfer to bedsheets.

The train :(

I occasionally find that I manage to put things, like boxer shorts, or T-shirts on backwards.... I have no explanation for this special behaviour.

Hmm... come to think of it... how do we know that that isn’t the right way to do it? *Maybe* you’re doing it right Bazza, and millions of us are getting it very, very wrong 🙂

Do you mean the order of putting clothes on (which is clearly right, and I'm astonished you would even imply it might not be)?

Or do you mean the threatening to stove my own head in on the dresser every morning - which I have to admit might not be optimal?

It adds a certain excitement to the morning, I'll give you that. As I hop wildly around the room swearing loudly.

Since a certain helpful little soul mentioned that it is possible to hook your toe into your trollies, hop three times across the bedroom like a drunk juggler and crack your knee into the corner of the bed, has anyone (else) noticed an uptick in said events?

It must be like when you buy a ********, and suddenly start noticing a lot more ********'s on the road.

I definitely haven't jinxed you all.

Just this morning actually it happened to me again. Except the resultant flailing then somehow turned a leg of the joggers I was trying to don inside out, making the continued efforts even more annoying.
