For Want of Anything Better…

Here’s a selfie of my pajama bottoms. I took it just now. ( By the way, what is among the few words that the English ever incorporated into their language from all those years that they ruled India? All I can think of is “pajamas”, “curry” and “mongoose”. It’s like the Romans when they ruled Britain. Very few words from the British Isles were incorporated into Latin.)

That’s my action half, and underneath is my Homer Simpson underpants. Here in Bradenton We don’t have very much in the way of department stores. We have Beall’s (by the way I went to high school with Bob Beall. More about that later) , and we have KMart and Walmart. Bealls didn’t have anything that would fit me, and this what they had at Walmart:

Notice anything those products have in common? Right. They’re all L, XL or bigger. No kidding. I didn’t even try KMart. (By the way, I’m a Medium. )

    Pajamas is one of the best known words English got from languages in India, shampoo and thug are also from Hindi/Urdu. Wikipedia (of course) has the lists:

      Yes, Thug comes from Tuggee, the killer worshipers of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death. But you all know that.
