Interesting things...

I used to lay awake at night and fantasize about life in the future. In fact, my sister and I had our lives all planned out. The weddings, jobs, kids...get ready, get set, execute. The world was at our disposal. Remember that Joleen? Mom used to say (over and over, I might add) 'no more talking, and I'm not gonna tell you again.' Of course we only stopped when we could hear her walking down the hall in our direction. The cracking ankles worked wonderfully in our favor. Anyway, it was during those times that I contemplated my perfect life. I thought for sure that by age 20, I would have arrived. Don't laugh, I am being serious. I thought I was going to be the coolest ever. I should mention that I was also going to be at least 5'5" and about ten pounds lighter. Umm. I realized today, that a reality check might be in order. I guess it's just one of those things that you know has a ‘slim-to-none’ chance of happening and yet we entertain the thoughts like we savor good food. That might be true, but my children are still going to be beautiful green-eyed babes with dirty-blond hair. Let’s see…dark brown hair plus light brown hair, equals blond? Did I mention I’m a strong believer in miracles? You can rest easy in knowing that I no longer fantasize about my twenties. Now all I want is two boobs. Don’t bother grabbing your glasses, you read correctly. Anyway, I am one of those-what do they say-endowed people, with one large inner-tube spanning the width of my chest. I guess some things never change…I didn’t make it to 5’5” and the extra fluff doesn’t seem to want to go anywhere, but dammit, my boobs are going to be awesome.

Just something interesting to think about. :o)

Can you send your leftovers to me please?????? lol Some of us were given bodies like amazons and when it came to the breasts well I think they were forgotten. Aimee, you are a beautiful person with so many attributes. So you never made it to 5'5 and got a lot extra up top, that is all surface stuff and though you can't change the height someday you can change the other. As for the light brown hair and green eye babies? There is always the mailman! hee hee

Have a wonderful day!!!

Haha! You're so funny! Maybe when ya get the job they can spread some of the love around to say, your @$$. Hehe just kidding! In all seriousness, I think you're gorgeous but know EXACTLY how you feel about the extra luggage up top. Try being an inch taller and like 50 lbs heavier (me)- eep! ;)

PS- Haha! I remember our talks and games fondly. And the "cracking ankles"- too funny! Too bad I have that too.. I guess my kids are going to hear me coming. :)

Actually, I have known people who were graced with only one, or pretty close to that. I worked with a woman whose right was an A and left was a C -- and rather than wear something with padding or try to give the illusion of balance, she'd wear fitted [on one side anyway) V-neck and scoop-neck tops to work, which as you can imagine conformed to one side -- and left the other side 'suspended and breathing' and ultimately visible. That was interesting.

You're welcome to post undisputable and detailed photographic evidence that you got one of your wishes. :) This page was found through your Joleen's Flickr "sisters" collection, where you only make a brief appearance.
