obsessive underpants

BecksSo we’re watching the BBC morning news magazine “Breakfast” when a story about David Beckham admitting to an obsessive compulsive disorder comes up. They mentioned that ‘things’ – nothing named specifically – must be perfectly arranged in straight lines, something else irrelevant, then a bit about him ordering loads of new underpants every fortnight from a specific shoppe in Madrid. Now, I’d read about the crazy underpants thing before (not realising it was part of a bigger problem) and dismissed it as wacky rich guy behaviour.

Here’s how the conversation between Neil and I went during the story:

j: “Whoa. He’s got to buy all his underpants from a shop in Madrid.”
n: “Actually, he probably has a hard time spending all the money he has.”
j: “Yeah but, couldn’t he spend it on fine art or something rather than obsessively buying underpants?”
n: “Yeah but he probably can relate better to underpants.”

Nuff said.

Good morning world! And happy underpants…

  1. Does the river that is woman want to overrun her banks, unwending itself, just a bit straighter- or would you admit as such?

  2. Just had a scary thought. Tracy Emmin reads regularjen, sees the mention of art and the fact that David Beckham has a huge unwanted pile of used underpants. Oh the horror, quick pass the matches 😉

  3. You know, you should think about signing off *all* your posts with “Good morning world! And happy underpants‚Äö?Ѭ?”

    It really works for you, jEN. 🙂
