Once a year, Randi, our 16 year old daughter, Amanda, and I get rid of our previous year’s bras and make the adventure to Nordstrom to purchase new ones. As you know, it’s all about the right foundation, and you have to keep those girls up there! My regular salesperson in the lingerie department had called a couple of months earlier to tell me she moved to Arizona, and if I was ever in the area, please stop by. Me? In Phoenix? Not all that likely, but I politely told her that I would stop in.
Having a trusted salesperson leave after a committed relationship of years is troublesome. Who is going to fit the family now? It’s like losing a hairstylist. Well, we were out for lunch and decided to take the chance and stop by. We were greeted by a lovely older woman with a kind smile and a desire to help. I told her the story of my former fitter, and she promised to take excellent care of us. Our boobs were in good hands…so to speak.
Upon realizing that all three of us required her services, I sure she had to pull from her inner strength as she pulled about a hundred bras. We had every color and shape imaginable…it was an explosion of lace and spandex. Racer-back, convertible, strapless, traditional…red, black, white, hot pink, nude…bows, no-bows, prints, solids…D/DD, C, B…we got them all. Well, not all, but seven or so each.
Having hit the mother lode on a quiet Sunday, the sly salesperson began to offer matching panties. I said, “No.” She persisted in pulling them and asking all the sale-closing questions. I again said, “No.” She continued in her attempts to sway my negative resolve. Suddenly, she got the biggest smile on her face and said, “Ah, you’re a Hanky Panky girl, aren’t you?” I couldn’t help but laugh and ask her to point the way to the profusion of colors…that were by chance on sale. What more could I have asked for?
Yes, I am a Hanky Panky girl.
