Sounds About Right

Went to vote this morning then got sobered up by the number of people who had poured out of a shelter.

Since I was downtown, headed to Rooster but I could see that the windows were fogged up by all of the people inside. Plus, there were people waiting by the picnic tables outside even though it was chilly so I moved on.

When I got home, told Alison that I was on track to make it for Zumba and I'm so glad that I did. Walked in at exactly 11:00 a.m. and saw that Alisha, who is about 23 weeks pregnant, had on a Wonder Woman like costume. She looked so freaking cute. Why does she have more energy than I do and can still squat, bend and jump?

Went home and had coffee and lunch then headed to one of the bra shops that the other woman (who closed her bra shop) recommended. I walked in and the second bra shop woman, Heidi, was like What can I help you with? Um, a bra???

I told Heidi that I'd just been fitted for a bra and had the size and model and, as I talked, I could see her sizing me up and she kind of smiled and said I do want to measure you and, of course, she thought that I needed a totally different size than the one that I purchased at the other shop. I tried on about six bras. With some of them, it was like a wrestling match which was kind of funny and not.

When Heidi rang me up, I thought about my mother, aunts, grandmothers and great grandmothers who never dropped as much money as I dropped for a bra today but I consoled myself with the thought that I've had the same crappy bras for years and I've saved enough money by not buying bras on the regular. Yeah, that sounds about right, I guess...

  1. I tend to wear bras until the elastic dissolves and goes bad. I would actually like to buy them more often, but have trouble getting my size, even at large size stores! Lane Bryant makes a style that i really like, and I haven't been able to get it in my size for the past 2 years.

  2. I was so excited when I heard about Third Love bras on a Moth episode -- you can try them for 30 days but they don't seem to have my size. Will have to go back and take a look.

    I'm going to employ your "until the elastic dissolves" strategy.
