It's been a long week. Full of appointments for the kids and it's been kind of hot outside.
So my favorite clothing item of the week- was my built in bra- tank top.
Also I hadn't many other choices due to the loads of laundry that needed to be done ( and had no laundry money to clean it). I had a few tank tops left in my drawer to wear for the week.
Let me start off by saying- Boobs- hypnotize every gender- all sexual orientations-period.
Straight men (obviously), gay men ( love love BIG boobs), gay women (duh!) and even straight women. Think I'm wrong? Really?
The FIRST person to check out a woman is- usually another woman. It's a fact. Women check each other out all the time- sizing one another up and whatnot.
Women will notice if another woman has fake breasts- BEFORE a man does.
It's just the way it works.
So who knew- shelf bra ( built in bra) tank tops- caused such a commotion?
A few days ago, while taking Lee on the train to go to the doctors, he was freaking out from the noise (he's very sensitive to sound) and I was bending down to comfort him while he was in the stroller- I look up and see this older man, just plain old STARING at my boobs. Which was kind of funny- and really really creepy at the same time. I mean, I'm comforting my crying son, have you no shame? Why bother even asking this? I already know the answer.
Then yesterday, when taking my daughter to her weekly sensory gym session, a guy came over to Shannon and I, and said in the most skeezy voice- "HELLLLLLOOOOO Ladies", to which we ignored but later laughed about. There are ALWAYS creepy crazy people around this area of the upper west side for some unknown reason. Then on the way back from the gym, a UPS man- get this- gave my boobs the "thumbs up", I kid you not!
DUDE! REALLY?! I was laughing. It was SO inappropriate but hilarious nonetheless.
I had quite a few looks on the way back, from men AND women. So when I get home, I ask Dave- "Is this not appropriate somehow????" To which he replied- "Uhh, no. It's perfectly fine."
"Because I don't want to look like a whore or anything."
I looked in the mirror- nothing was over-exposed. People just LOOOOOVE boobies.
And yes, I totally believe boobs could rule the damn world- but I'm not a teenager anymore- showing off my boobs, is no longer "fun" to me. And people "oogling" them, as funny as it might be, feels more inappropriate than fun, nowadays.
On another note- you all know Dave has a major caffeine addiction right?
And he's been told to kick the habit. But....I can't let him do this. If he goes for "too long" without coffee or diet soda, he gets cranky- and that's putting it REALLY mild.
It's like he's PMSing several times daily. I told him if he doesn't get on top of this situation- I told him "I just might have to get a syringe, fill it with espresso, and jab it into your freakin' neck!" YEAH- it's THAT bad!!! So wish me luck- that I get through these tough times!
On a good note- we ARE going to get back food stamps! YAY!!! Hopefully soon, the court decision was made in our favor thank G-D!!! I got the notice yesterday. AND I got WIC for both the kiddios yesterday as well. Dave told me things would get better- and I guess he's right.
Violet had a sonogram of her kidneys and bladder the other day- to make sure there's nothing wrong. I won't get the results until I hear from her doctor. Hopefully that'll be soon.
It's been a very busy week! Today I have a meeting with CPSE ( board of ed for preschoolers) to fight for more services for Violet.
And then I get a break from appointments- at least until Monday.
That's my thoughts for the day-
