The standing rule when I was growing up was DO NOT leave the house with holey (NOT HOLY) underwear----YOU MIGHT BE IN A CAR WRECK! It was MOST important to keep up appearances and HEAVENS you didn't want to be in the emergency room with everyone standing around staring at your tattered underwear while you bled to death! "SHOCKING---LOOK SHE HAS ON HOLEY UNDERWEAR!" as your life blood poured onto the floor.
In keeping with my good upbringing, I am sitting here watching the weather bulletins about all the tornado possibilities and trying to decide WHAT TO WEAR! I mean --after all---if the trees that surround my house all fall on it---I may have to be rescued and possibly even injured and need to be taken to the hospital. I have checked and my underwear is in tact, but I need to go to bed so I can get up and run (if I'm still here and not in Oz). I've come up with the perfect plan---I will sleep in my running clothes-shoes & all.
I can hear the emergency personnel now---
You wouldn't believe it---she was in the bed all dressed for a run. HOW STRANGE!
BUT HEY her underwear was not holey!
