The Panty Raid

I knew something was wrong the minute I walked in the door and saw the gold tissue on the floor. I use the delicate paper to wrap some of my rarely worn jewelry. Which had been safely stashed last I checked.

Oh God, I thought, we’ve been broken into.

I followed the trail into the master bedroom, where I found the bag that had once contained that tissue-wrapped jewelry ripped open. Its contents, along with half of my wardrobe, were strewn across the floor.

My heart hammering in my chest, I tried to take stock of what was in front of me. A quick inventory revealed that my random assortment of purely sentimental pieces appeared to all be present and accounted for. Which was a relief to be sure.

It was then that my attention was drawn to a pile of sodden fabric. I stooped to inspect it more closely and it clicked. It was my favorite pair of panties.

Or at least, what was left of them.

I was equal parts relieved and disgusted. This wasn’t a burglary at all, but a panty raid. And not the first, either.

I thought I’d found the perfect hiding place for my underthings to avoid further incident, but these perverts were craftier than I thought.

I turned to face the culprits who, at that very moment, were yipping excitedly at my heels.


They’re lucky they’re cute.

The culprits, Monstro and Pechita.

    I remember well when James and I were first married in 1971. He was a senior in college and I worked for $1 an hour or less at the local hospital. Needless to say, money was tight. I saved up and bought a brand new pair of loafers for $10 to wear to work and our Border Collie, Alice, ate them. It was a bad day, but Alice lived to be 17 years old so, I must have forgiven her. Dogs love things that smell like you, and they an amazing sense of smell.
