Next, put it where the missus can’t find it like in the bottom of the toolbox. Or invite her to watch you do it. She’s likely to think you’re weird, a pervert…or whatever. Maybe all three at once. But at least you’ll have plausible deniability if she finds the second one.

The best place to get knee high stockings is to ask your lady if she has one that’s extra. If she doesn’t believe your reason for wanting it, send her here. I’ll be happy to handle the hate mail.

If you’re (un)fortunate enough to be single, just walk into the store that sells them, pick one out, and if the cashier asks why you’re buying knee high stockings, you have a couple options:

Tell her (him) “I sure hope they fit”,
