i always have "silly questions" floating around in my head so thought i'd make another post with some of them.
i wonder why we say pair of pants & pair of underwear when it is just one article of clothing? they aren't like socks or shoes where they are actually two seperate items. is it because they have two leg holes? if that's the case then why don't we say a pair of shirts? after all shirts come with two sleeves right?
i wonder why the word hair is singular & plural at the same time? we don't say we are going to get our hairs cut or there's cat hairs all over the couch. when we say such we aren't referring to just one hair but a bunch of them yet we still say hair & not hairs.
any thoughts ladies? share some of your "wonderings"! ;o)
