(as if that'd surprise you from me..)
...this post is all about....bras.
Yep..by-gones to me..and I can't say I miss them all that much.
I remember my very first experience with the ...training bra...
Mother took me to Sears..then she took a bra that she thought would be the right size and ...she ...held it up to my chest as if "fitting" it on me...right there in the store..on the sales floor!!
I don't think I could spell "mortified" then but that's what I was at that moment.
Ah yes...childhood memories..
Then all through high school, I remember how totally uncomfortable a bra was. I thought I would nEVeR get used to wearing one, and I guess I really never did..
Remember the old "rule" for going bra-less in the 60's?? If you could hold a pencil under your boob and it did not fall...you should NOT go bra-less..
I could hold a Volkswagen..
Got one word for you...underwires.. Oh. My. Heck....the wire would start to come through the fabric and actually stab you all day...or until you could get to the ladies room where you could pull out the wire...and walk out with one perky and one droopy..and try to act as if all were good with the world..
I remember after the birth of my first child..I was in bliss...I felt good, was happy, had a beautiful daughter. I slept the first night (this is when they kept you for 3 days in the hospital) and on the second morning..I remember waking up feeling a bit "soggy"..I had been sleeping on my side..and I looked at my arm, which was up in the air...sort of...and I was thinking...
"What the heck??"
"Oh goodie! The boob-fairy came!"
But that didn't last long..and you know what they say about a full balloon - when the air is let out, the balloon will never be the same...
So, when I saw these various photos and rubber stamps images (from Penny Black) I couldn't resist..
Now, you know I love animals, right? And that includes fish..so this may be the perfect thing for me - I mean with all the water, I don't need the "real things" right??
So here are a couple of ideas for all those bras we end up with...
1. A purse:
2. A hammock:
So, here's to you and here's to me and here's to all the udders...
(OK, baaaaad, I know..)
Well, have a fun week-end and don;t take anything too seriously..after all, they're just...bras.
