Big Boobs are over-rated

The Manzere

I changed out my summer clothes with the winter stuff, yesterday. As I am trying things on, I notice that everything is snug across the bust, but everything else fits fine. I hate that! I have to donate perfectly good tops, because they won't fit.  My mom who was a little petite gal, used to say, that BIG BOOBS were over-rated.  I can see that now.

My sister and I took after Grandma in the boob department.  I remember when I started developing,  I was ashamed.  Boys kept starring at me - I hated to wear sweaters. I developed first in my class of girls. Boys would pull my bra strap in back. Not cool.  Then the other girl's started to develop and one thing I noticed, we all looked different. Some really shot out BIG while others dragged along, sometimes having to stuff their bra's with Kleenex. (Do girls' even do that anymore?)

They are good to have, when you are younger - but once you hit menopause and post-menopause, they are a DRAG.  They get bigger. They are HEAVY.  No bra fits right anymore unless you find one that looks like a steel helmet for your boobs.  If you go bra-less, you sweat under-neath your boobs.  I'm wearing sport bras, because they are way more comfortable and tend to cut down a little on "the bounce."

The husband just doesn't get it. He practically split a gut once - when I came home with a "Minimizer Bra".

He's like, "WHY?"

See the deal is,  men deep down wish THEY HAD BIG BOOBS.  

Well they can have them.

PET PEEVE - People who back into their parking space in a public parking lot

I've almost been hit a few times- with these people who back in their parking space - they "reversed" into their parking spots then they pull out in front of me.  Many times, the parking aisle is one way. Men do this more than women. There they are, slightly reclined in the driver's seat with their right arm over the passenger seat. Then they turn their steering wheel with ease and back right in. BUGS ME. What is the purpose of doing that? ACTUALLY, I checked into this. When men parked, they took MORE effort - to wiggle in, reverse. Delayed gratification because if you back in and pay the price at the beginning, you don't have to wiggle your way out when you leave. Silly men!

Another pet peeve is when people drive through the parking lot to the empty space in front of them - pointed nose out -  Once again, dicey on a one way. Then when you are cruising the parking lot, going in the right direction, you are mostly looking for those backing out, not coming through. When they do this, they tend to demand the right of way. Old women and men do this a lot.

I wonder, are there any LAWS regarding this. Once I saw a cop sitting in a parking space and he yelled at some woman who was driving through the parking spaces. She almost caused an accident. He didn't get out to give a ticket - just yelled at her.

Why can't people follow the common-sense-rules? It's not like it gets them any better parking space. I think, people who do this, think they are somewhat smarter than the rest of us.

"Haha, I am so smart, I drove right on through to park."
" I'm too good to park the right way." 
"My way or the highway."

On occasion, my husband has backed into a parking space at Lowes or Home Depot. He says it's so he can get out faster.


He has also, driven through the parking slot at the grocery store - which is idiotic because when you come out with groceries, you have to maneuver the shopping cart in between the other cars to get to your trunk.

He doesn't do it anymore with me.

Meeting the mom and grandma

My son, Navy has a girlfriend. She's MORE than just a girlfriend. They are living together and it's getting serious, I guess. She texted me, wanting me and the husband to meet her mom and grandmother soon. She said we could all meet for lunch or dinner, sometime in October.

They've talked about having babies after she finishes nursing school in 2 years. They've talked about buying 40 acres so that she can have cows and chickens. I mean, THEY ARE SERIOUS!

I met my first husband when I was 15. (He was 18) I was shy and so I didn't meet his parents until I was 17 years old. At 15,  all I wanted to do was make out! It was weird. His mother kept checking me out and his dad kept smiling at his son.

I'm a little nervous about it because I am not a very social person. I spend my days, talking to the cats and the dog. I am lousy at small talk. This is when I count on the husband to bail me out. He's the yacker while I sit and smile.

Okay, so we don't talk religion (they are Morman) or politics. What else should be off limits???? I don't want to blow this for my son.
