I'd been noticing it all summer - in the grocery store- on the street. And then yesterday this woman was walking along pulling her little eight or nine year old son along by the hand and I was walking behind both of them.
He had his eyes cast down to the sidewalk, looking dejected, and I thought,' he must have just had a talking-to' or ' maybe he's just upset that he has to be out shopping with his mom on such a beautiful day', and then I look at the mom's back- and see that you can see her whole butt right through her trousers.
And it wasn't some cute little pert butt. It was a big butt- XXL size at least.
And this poor boy has to be subjected to that - not only having to look at it himself- how could he avoid it, being pulled along behind her and seeing it shift up and down as she walked (which I have to say I watched for a moment or two with utter fascination- I've never had my attention drawn to a woman's butt to notice that it did that before- that's when I started wondering about the chafing issue), but walking down the street with his mother bustling along pulling him by the hand and exposing her bottom for everyone to see. If I'd been him, I'd have behaved and acted happy just so she'd let go of my hand so I could walk a few paces ahead or behind and pretend I was on my own.
It's not that she was heavy. My mom has been heavy my whole life. I have a lot of fondness for heavy, cuddly, soft mothers who by virtue of their size also have big bums. But my mother never exposed me to seeing her bum or watching it move. Why does this woman think this is appropriate to show her son? If she wants to do it to look sexy for a night out or whatever - go for it. But now the poor boy is probably gonna have nightmares about women and their bums and only go for it in the dark, as spendius suggested.
I just don't get it.
You can get very comfortable seamless underwear that show no pantylines. I wondered if I should tell her about those. And then I thought - maybe she thinks this looks good or something - and I minded my own business.
I also don't understand why men wear capri pants (trousers).
