With age, I have noticed that I have started to neglect some of the things in my wardrobe. I cannot say that I am doing it on purpose; it is just not something that I think about as often as I used to. Maybe that is saying a little bit about me as well and my need to be pretty in hidden places. I am now looking for comfort during the day. I have paid my dues of 4 to5 in heels and skin tight dresses.
This morning, the pesky “friend” that lives beside my bed reminded me that it was 7:00 a.m. and I needed to greet another cold, rainy, dark, English day. So, I got up and started my morning routine, turned on the computer, prayed for an email from someone other than Toys R Us, and took a shower.
After the shower, I pulled out the garment that a lot of us wish that we could skip for most of the day. Yes, folks! I am talking about that over-the-shoulder- boulder-holder, more commonly known by your grandmother as a brassiere.
Anyone who has lived in England knows mornings are not known for warmth in the winter—even inside your house. So, I wanted to get my garments on quickly. But, my bra was not fitting. When it comes to lingerie, I don’t keep ones that no longer fit hoping that I will drop a size or two and get back into these undies later. I have been living with my girls for a long time. So I know there will be limited shrinkage in that area.
This morning, as I struggled to put on my boulder holder, it did not fit as well as it had last week. In fact it seems more like a pasty than the cup of a bra. Well, if I was trying to get a little morning fun, it might have been just the thing. But that was not idea. I had to drive my child to school.
I looked down at my chest and thought: Is there an alien in my bra? Not only had this strange creature jumped into my bra but he had inflated my girls and pumped them up another cup size. A little concerning! Anyone one who knows me ~ knows that I could stand to give away a few cups so I don’t need aliens pumping up the jam in my brassiere.
Lately, I have been a bit more conscientious about not sleeping with my contacts in. I decided that I might need to see the facility my child is sure to stick me in when I am an old person. So I struggled to grab my glasses. As my eyes adjusted, I realized that in my sleepy haze, blurry vision, and need to block the draft of the English dampness, I had put my bra on backwards. So that would explain the voluptuous cleavage and not-so-perfectly-fitting garment.
There were no aliens in my bra! Just a blind woman having a typical Monday morning!
