Next to Godliness.

When we were small, my Mother always made sure that we regularly changed our underwear, especially when we were going out. My brother and I could not understand the special significance of a change before going out of the house.

My Mother explained, that it in case we got run over on the road, she did not want the hospital to find us in soiled undergarments.

We pointed out that an accident would, perhaps, increase a soiling; blood, reflex excrement and what have you, but this argument did not curb her zeal. 

Her sons tried not to be disappointed that her reputation was more important to her than her worry about any injuries they might sustain.
