What a strange headline, I thought. I noted the alliteration "WOMAN WOUNDED"; but I wondered why they said, she was wounded "by" her panties, or knickers as we call them in the UK. It implies the panties have a personality of their own; it's as if the panties plotted and succeeded in wounding her.
It was an intriguing headline almost compelling you to read the whole story. Which I did, of course.
Apparently, this woman had left her panties lying on the floor just by the top of the stairs. She tripped on them and fell down the stairs and was full of bumps and bruises as a result.
What a let down, I thought. Literally so in her case. She was definitely let down by her panties.
But this story reminded me of another story about women's panties which I posted here back in 2012. Rather than repeat it once more, perhaps you'd like to link back and read the story for yourself.
