When one heavyset character in a UT shirt adjusted his position in his chair, his shirt rode up, and I noticed something: He was wearing a thong. A red silky thong. I'm not sure what they call it when the skin under the waistband but above the jeans is exposed, but that's what he had going on. I was surprised, and pointed it out to TM, who burst out laughing. So many questions came up:
- Why the thong? Why red and silky?
- Was that his thong, or his girlfriend's? (A woman who appeared to be his girlfriend was sitting next to him.)
- If it's his, does she know he's wearing it?
- Is she wearing his underwear?
- Is his underwear preference public knowledge, or is it something he does secretly?
- Is everyone else at the table wearing a thong?
- Are they in a club of some kind?
