Picture, if you will, my sister-in-law and I at a party on Saturday night. It was in a beautiful, I-swear-I-saw-it-on-Pinterest, super modern, yet way DIY loft in Portland, with 60+ gay men. Did I mention there were only 2 other women in attendance? A vision, right? 🙂
This was my weekend. But I had a wonderful time and learned so much over the course of several enthusiastic conversations even though they quickly turned into me being the person cornering my formerly enthusiastic conversation partner (Seriously. At least 4 times during the night I realized I had trapped the person I was talking to. I pretty much just looked at my partner and said, “Go.” I couldn’t believe I’d become that person! Part of my day job is saving our staff at social events when they get cornered… Oh, how the mighty have fallen… :)).
Anyway. Did you know that men (at least several in this group) have some of the same fit issues with their underwear as women?!? I guess I thought that since they didn’t have birthing (or not-birthing) hips nothing would be out of proportion. But alas, no such luck, and they face undies that fit in the bottom but bundle at the waist too. No one is immune!
The men I talked to were floored about my passion for perfectly fitting undies (it knows no gender :)), and implored me to start making men’s underwear. I’m feeling super energized and inspired. So. Stay tuned 🙂
Have you ever talked to someone about a passion or interest and been met with immediate excitement and acceptance? I’d love to hear more about it- please comment below! 🙂
