The one time I was in that situation (heart attack in 2003) I can honestly say the condition of my underwear did not cross my mind.

Not for that very reason but my wife throws my holy undies into the rag box in the garage.

I can't get the multi quote function to work right so you'll get this one at a time.


Buy New undies.

You obviously don't understand how frugal (cheap) I am.

Nope, I don't mend with a needle anymore.
I can understand that Kayelle.

I once had a #6 finish nail go through my finger.
Don't want to experience that again.
I do have the X-Rays if anyone is interested.
And yes it did go through the bone.
It was also the middle one so if you want to see it I'll be giving you the finger. Board attached.

There are also two types of self threading needles. The one mentioned above where you push/pull the thread through the top of the eye, and the other is called a side threading needle. I have both types in my sewing kits for tired eyes.

This is the side threading needle, much harder to find than the other type. https://www.amazon.com/Sench-Self-Th...reading+needle
There are needle threaders? Google even say's they have automatic ones.
I still like the idea of the roommate idea and having them being the automatic needle threader.

My mother drummed this into my head over and over. That's why I need help with needles. Can't have the EMS folks finding even the tiniest hole.

As to be expected. And to tell you the truth I actually never care about the condition of my undergarments.

Does she at least hold a service as she disposes of these Holy garments?

My visiting daughter stood in my room and wouldn't leave until I handed her an old bra that was being replaced by a new one...

I did have a choice as to which decrepit article I gave her but she stood there with scissors in hand till I handed one over.... then she ran to the dust bin and chomped away with the scissors. awww com'on - they weren't THAT bad!

I solved that problem. I almost never wear one. That way the ones I have stay nice a good long time.
