But one thing the girls love to do is play dress-up and at our house, the dress-up items are the clothes they bring with them, including underwear.
The oldest, Sylvie, thought it was fun
to put the underwear on her head. Then she tried it on her sister. It was hilarious!
There was a time however, when some women in Newfoundland wore underwear on their heads when they made bread. We had no direct experience of this in our families, but we knew about it.
When we worked in Buchans, Newfoundland, the students discovered that Rick was the bread maker in our house. This was forty years ago and not a common practice among the miners in that town. One boy was curious about Rick's attire whilst making bread. He asked, "Do you wear your own underwear or your wife's on your head when you make bread, Sir?"
Rick was perturbed by the question. He asked the boy, "What are you talking about?"
"Mom puts underwear on her head when she makes bread," was the reply.
"Oh!...there isn't any underwear on my head when I make bread," said Rick.
When Rick told me, we laughed of course. That's one way for a man to wear women's underwear.
It is a good thing that hair nets came into fashion in the food service industry, don't you think?
