Hillelian Commandos

I was sitting in Hillel this past Thursday while Rabbi Jacobson and his group of men were praying (davening for the ashkis) Mincha. Really quietly and patiently I am waiting for them to finish. All of a sudden, Tova leans over the couch, taps me on the shoulder, and asks "Alison, do you happen to have a tampon in your bag? I just got my period."
"Sorry, Tova, but I think I might have a pad for you..."
"uh see I cant do that." slowly the "Tova face" begins to emerge, y'know with the eyes and the sly smile...
totally puzzled I asked "why not?"
the "Tova face" is now fully developed as she answers "um cuz im not wearing any underwear"
out of pure, well I wouldnt exactly call it shock, but I will in this case, shock I just started laughing so hard - not loudly though I tried to control myself. Reminder they are still praying.
Tova's looking at me totally confused but ok we decided if I find one then I'll let her know.

Mincha is over and Newcombe comes to me and asks "what the heck happened that made you giggle during Mincha?"
"sorry, Nukes, can't tell you."
Needless to say, Newcombe is a very curious guy.

I called Tova to see if she was "ok" and she informed me that her search returned no results and she was tamponless. Luckily enough later on Dina redeemed her of her misery.

Later than evening while talking to Dina online, this following conversation took place:
Me: So I heard you saved Tova today
Dina: haha yeah. She told me that apparently you dont know that most of hillel dont wear underwear.
Me: uh no. I thought it was standard...
and we continued talking but about other things...

The conversation happened to come up again tonight with Tova as she was telling me "you know, Alison, you should really try it... " and yada yada
Anyway we were going through hillelians and deciding if they wear underwear or not. Apparently Tova knows a lot who do not. Ben does however and she told me how she knew. In the class that they have together, Tova sits in back of Ben and always sees his boxers protruding out of his pants. (Dont worry Ben I like boxers. In fact, Tova said she was going to get me some for Channukah this way I can wear them in Israel - yay. Wonder what the rabbis will say when they see my boxers coming out of my skirt!)
Anyway, Tova and I are now taking surveys and asking poeple in Hillel whether or not they wear underwear. We are well on our way to victory to knowing everyones status.

Anyway bottom line, a lot of people in Hillel do not wear underwear. And those who you think do, beware because as Tova says, looks can be decieving.

I love the secrecy, don't tell nukes in person but post it on a blog for the world to see. i love it.

On a side note, underwear is a seasonal thing.

LENNYYYY!!!! i cannot beleive youre using cripple people as an actual...thing!! crazy. as fas as underwear goes, yeah....i ddint know it was a trend in hillel, i thought i was being original.
no, actually, kidding. its a tad chilly outside to not be wearing underwear. I'd have to agree it's a seasonal thing. although, it can get a littlw skanky in the warmeer months whenthe mini-skirts come around...that's when underwear is alwats a must. i guess that doesnt count for the o-girls though, right?

i don't understand what's so strange about it.

i can go with lenny on this, and say in the winter time, i'm more likely to wear underwear, however, i was sleeping at the dorms, and it was just another item of clothing. so i was like, screw it.

mir, besides the three you were talking about, i know of like three others in hillel.

Mazal-tov!

on the issue of underwear, I may be one of the few in hillel that tries to get underwear in matching sets.

I shared my own personal commando story with dina last night as we were IMing each other. Let me just put it this way - going commando may not be for me.

i just realized that it was broadcasted not only to all of hillel, but all of the internet world, that i don't wear underwear. so much for keeping stuff like this a secret...

maybe i should go like... buy some underwear or something. then surprise everyone by wearing it. where does one get cartoon character underwear?

also, lenny, oh yes! and you spelled your name wrong.

eblooger has this thing where you have to do a "word verification" so you can poat a blog.

its supposed to assure that the person that is posting the blog is a real person..

l. mo. has a point, these word verifications are getting long, but mine is short this time-

actually no it wasn't. but it was a good excuse. if it was because i found a hole in my jeans (which by the way is the smallest possible hole, and you totally can't see anything), i woul dhave put on the underwear when we got back. but i'm waiting for a special occasion.

Underwear is a pretty hot topic, I'm almost compelled to go out and buy some new pairs of boxers.

Though, I much prefer boxer-briefs these days. They just make xzavk feel so much better.

OOooo, that could be dirty.

So, you guys are using your word verification "words" in your posts, but it's not in the flow of the post. You just put them at the bottom, that's no fun. From now on, try and replace them with words IN sentences. For example, I'm really tired because I had too much kxare last night.

That's all.

dear anonymous (aka the flipper),

alison (sherbet) clearly post the topic as " Hillelian Commandos." "commando" and "hillelian" meaning those in hillel, meaning those who go without underwear. but we're glad you enjoyed it.

also, i would like to make an announcement. since i wasn't sure if we would have lorraine and alison's party (but i was informed we would but somewhere in brooklyn), yesterday, i wore underwear! i showed lorraine and alison. they were very proud.

it deserves a nejyqbaj all around.
