Are you surprised that something as simple as the type of panties you choose to wear can actually reveal a thing or two about your personality? Underwear is any girl's secret weapon, boost of confidence and seduction tool. There are so many styles to choose from... however, most of the time, the only two things that we base our choices on are: 1) are they comfortable? and 2) does my ass look good in these? Depending on the type of underwear we opt for, we end up exuding different vibes. So let's see what your choice of panties says about your personality.
You're definitely very sexual, but a bit old-fashioned. Why old-fashioned, you ask? Because g-strings were popular in the late 90s, early 2000s... You like everything beautiful and put a lot of efforts into your appearance. You also, obviously, hate panty lines.
That thong, th-thong, thong, thong... It covers a bit more skin than the g-string, so you're not as open to experiments as the girl above, but you're still sexy as fvck. You're confident and sometimes, even intimidating. You like to get things your way and, most of the time, you do.
You're a laid back type of girl who chooses comfort and quality over anything superficial. You surround yourself with people you genuinely care about, unlike the girls above who crave attention from pretty much anyone. Men are drawn to you because you exude "wife material" vibes.
4. French Knickers
Basically, anything with too much lace or silk can be called French Knickers. If you wear this type of underwear, you obviously pay a lot of attention to details. When you meet someone new, you immediately notice if their shoes are dirty or if they're missing a button from their shirt. You're also very particular with your taste in men.
5. Boy Shorts
You're fun, flirty, spontaneous and irresistibly sexy. Guys are super attracted to your bubbly and friendly personality. You're that cool chick everyone wants to be friends with.
6. Granny Panties
You literally do not give a single fvck what other people think about you. You know what you want and what you like... and that's all that matters to you.
7. Panties with words printed on them
You probably didn't even realize your undies had something written on them until someone pointed it out to you. You're really chill and careless, but in a good way. Let's just say you don't stress too much. Ever.
A refreshing video of a raccoon enjoying a shower on a hot summer day is making a splash on social media, courtesy of a young Montreal resident and his kiddie pool.
"Yeah buddy, the raccoon is taking a shower in your (kiddie pool)," Elena Parial explained to her son in the video, as the animal appeared to bathe. "He undid the plug and he's now taking a full-on shower."
Judging by the 47-second clip posted July 5, the raccoon was probably hot and thirsty as it drank plenty of shower water.
Unfortunately, the critter's paws damaged the pool's plug while yanking it out: "Luckily, our son's splash table wasn't a splurge price-wise," said Parial.
Naturally, the shower-loving raccoon has made a splash on social media.
"So cute. Sorry about the plug," stated one Facebook fan of the well-groomed raccoon.
Animal takes shower to beat the heat
Parial, who lives in Montreal's Côte-Des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-De-Grâce borough, told MTL Blog the raccoon has been frequenting her back deck for about six months.
"He had been visiting us infrequently before but we became more aware of him as of December 28, 2020, when he attacked our compost bin in a particularly aggressive and messy manner," she said.
Parial said the raccoon may have found a "lady friend" by the looks of a subsequent video posted July 7, which shows a pair of critters frolicking playfully on her patio furniture.
"I don't have irrefutable evidence that the shower attracted the lady friend, but this is the first time we've seen him with a friend," she said. "It's a gross assumption but it makes for a good social media post."
A possible 'lady friend'
Parial said she does not mind the raccoon taking up residence near her home, as it's been much less destructive than the squirrels who "have eaten [their] patio lights and torn numerous holes in [their] patio furniture," but she does have some concerns.
"I'm worried that we'll unknowingly stroll onto our deck not knowing he's sleeping there and find ourselves in a situation," she said. "More importantly, I worry my son may find himself in a situation because he's got a keen toddler curiosity."
She's also afraid the raccoon could lose its fear of humans. "Currently, he scurries when my husband taps on our patio door. He scurries away and knows we want our space. I'm not sure how long this is going to last before he figures out we're just scared of him and any pests or diseases he may carry."
Kiddie pool has become a water source
Bill Dowd, founder of Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, said Parial's kiddie pool has probably become a water source for the "highly intelligent, very inquisitive" creature.
"My recommendation to the homeowner would be to obviously remove that water source," he said.
"If I was a betting man," he continued, "I would bet that if you see the raccoon that frequently on her deck, I would suspect it's probably living underneath the deck or maybe in her attic or in her chimney or underneath the shed out back."
He said the pair in the video are probably enjoying a platonic relationship as it's not raccoon mating season, which runs from January to June, so they won't be making raccoon babies together anytime soon.
"From the behaviour that those videos show me, I would say they're juveniles are just kind of being teenagers," he said.
"Getting into trouble, being rambunctious and kind of wrestling and fooling around."
