Barking Shorts

Many, many moons ago, sometime when I was in high school, I had a pair of boxers shorts.  (Why are they called a pair?  Because there are 2 leg holes?  You can only really (if you're normal) wear one at a time.  Unlike socks that you wear two of.)  These were christmas boxers.  With cartoonish dogs of all type with a winter wonderland backdrop. 

The magic thing about these boxers... there was a little pouch inside the waist line that held a little voice box.  And when you pushed the button on that little voice box, christmas songs were played by the barking and howling of... dogs. 

So last night/this morning after Riley's first of 3 seizures, and me having to lock her inside to keep her from waking the neighborhood, she stood around in the living room barking.

And you know what I heard, her barking in the tune of jingle bells. 

Then I remembered the boxers.

I've wondered that too. Why "a pair of panties?" Clearly there is only one... and they are hardly big enough to count as two items... Doesn't make sense.
