No More Ladders

How long did the paint last? I suspect this was more about going to hang out with your friends and being attended to for a little while. I bet this was a Friday.

Ladders?

I think that means runs in your stockings, right?

Shit if I know. Eagerly awaiting a more edified commenter...

I believe that is true. During the war they used leg paint to save the stocking-material for the war.

I remember Granny saying something about ladders in your stockings. I would like some stockings painted onto me. I bet it feels nice. Isn't it funny that this seems odd to us and yet ladies now get entire body tans spray painted on?

I'll bet the leg painting was healthy. NOT.

Mama: and draw seams up the back.
May: that must be why I knew what they meant. Those fake tans look so weird.
SB: probably healthier than a fake tan!
