Dear Kate: Please step off my name!

By Katharine Luckinbill

Okay … so I get this link the other day:

The headline reads: “Meet Dear Kate

I think: “FINALLY. Someone cares! People are reading my column! This is it! See ya later, day job! I am OFFICIALLY a famous writer and things are going up Up UP!”

Subheading: “Brilliant Underwear That’s High-Tech, Not High-Maintenance”

“Underwear?” I think. “But I didn’t just write any columns about underwear. Wait…wait a second. Noooooooo.”

This column isn’t abut me it’s about UNDERWEAR! Underwear? Underwear.

Oh but the buck doesn’t stop there, oh nooooo my friends. This isn’t just any underwear…this is high-tech, leak-resistant fabric for woman who occasionally PEE IN THEIR PANTIES.

List of things to be upset about:

  1. Not a famous writer.
  2. “Dear Kate” are pee-panties.
  3. Do I need to change my identity?
  4. Again, “Dear Kate” =  pee-pee panties.
  5. Still not a famous writer.
  6. Have to keep my day job.

So I kept reading the article anyway, and I actually kind of liked what I saw. (Darn it!)

First of all, these sound really smart for athletes and expectant moms, also they have a line to keep ladies feeling fresh during that time of the month – which let’s face it ladies – we all need whether we are peeing in our pants or not.

Plus they are plugging the new line with this slogan:

Kate is that best friend you call in a crisis, the one who rushes to your side with chocolate.”

I mean … it’s like I am the panties.

Is that not what “Dear Kate” (the advice column) is all about? A friendly ear and voice to rush to your aid when you need it most?

So it got me to thinking — is there a partnership in this pee-panties thing? Could we join forces and be the most helpful, most protective Kate force that ever lived?!?!

Maybe. Or maybe not.

    Kate, you beat me to the punch. This was so going to be next week’s Trivia topic. But I understand. They are totally encroaching upon your trademark! Who ever heard of panties being called Dear anything!

    LOL to “I mean … it’s like I am the panties.”

    You’re way better than the panties. Keep the great advice coming.

    BWAHAHAHAHA!

    Just FYI – I personally would rather have YOU looking out for me than pee-panties… but that’s just me
