None of my bras fit. I hate that. I have lots of friends who prefer to go sans bra, but that is not my style and never has been. Call me uptight, call me a conformer, call me unnatural, call me what you will, but I like bras. I do not, however, like any of the bras I currently own. Pregnancy and nursing for over nine years straight can do a number on the mammalian body. All my bras are either too big, too small, or just not comfortable at any given moment during the day. I need to go shopping, but given the choice between a pelvic exam and bra shopping, I would have to think for a few minutes. It is just that fun.
While I have lost all my male readers, I will take a chance on people now coming to my blog while doing something entirely different on the computer than cooking vegan food and discuss one of my biggest pet peeves. I hate the word "boob"...stop me if I've told you before because I've blogged about this in my mind several times, but I really don't think I've ever put pen to paper about it. If I have, skip to the next post.
I guess we can add prude to the list of things to call me because I cringe, I mean I CRINGE each time someone calls their breasts (because it seems to be the women out there, maybe the guys I talk to are way too PC ) "boobs". I don't get it. Boob, to me, has a negative connotation which was created by men (just a feeling, I have no idea where the word started or why people started calling breasts by that name) and I don't know why women...not just any women, but many, many women whom I know and respect...continue the use of the word. Maybe it is Vagina Monologues type thing where they are "claiming" back the word. I don't care, it bugs me.
As a mother of boys, the term "boobs" bothered me because I will not tolerate my boys picking that term up. They can say "oh shit" (that is a story for another post), they can say a lot of things I won't go into here, but I will not have them call women's breasts, "boobs". Breast and nipple are words that get used more often than you would think by my boys, but I don't think they would even know what someone meant if they said "boobs". Now that I am the mother of a female, she will choose for herself since it is her body, but I am hoping "boobs" will not be part of her vocabulary.
Glad to get all this off my chest.
In case you haven't guessed, I don't like "hooters" any better.
