The ladies & Me
Posted June 14, 2011on:
I announced Friday my special event on Sunday was going to be a “boobs-in situation.” That’s no relation to “The Situation” from the Jersey Shore program.
I thought I would look better in my dress with an endowment, even if only adopted.
Yes, I was going to wear my breast prostheses for the first time in many, many months. The last time I tried was at my nephew’s wedding last October, but discovered the bra was higher than the dress. So much for that plan.
When I was packing Saturday night for Sunday’s event, I looked and looked for my bras and “the ladies.” No luck. Where were they? I don’t think I gave them away to Goodwill. If I did, someone sorting my clothes would have a shock of his or her life.
I actually have two sets of prostheses and three or four bras and couldn’t find any of them. It was only a problem because once I start looking for the missing, it’s hard to stop. But I did.
The truth be known, prostheses are surprisingly heavy and I’m guessing not so comfortable in hot weather.
It didn’t matter. I am what I am and am very comfortable with me As I’ve said before, I am not my breasts (or lack of) and my breasts (or lack of) are not me.
And no one on Sunday even asked where “the ladies” were.
