Okay that came up at a dinner with good friends a few weeks ago.
“….a bloody hickie!”
Hold the dogsled…a what?
These friends live thousands of miles away from me.
When I heard they were coming to town and asked if dinner was possible, I nearly burst into tears I was so happy.
They are kind.
They are genuine.
They are real.
It does my heart good to know when these people are coming…a big sigh of relief washes over me. No matter what chaos my little row boat is facing. No matter if I’m riding an ostrich of insanity. If I’m having a week of walking the fire of idiotic nonsense. It’s going to be okay, good people are on the way.
I can be me. No judging.
Arriving to dinner in rubber boots, jeans, fleece jacket and messed up hair – this crowd would have said, “hell yeah!”
Like going to the beach on a Sunday. It calms me. The sound of the ocean. Floating on the water. Watching the waves. Looking for fish. Aaahhh.
But most importantly….back to the bloody hickie.
Why do people do what they do to themselves?
I drive down the highway and there are billboards….upgrade your breasts. Lift your butt! Tuck that tummy. They offer photos to show proof.
The original boobs looked just fine to me.
The original butt. I don’t know which one I am supposed to like – they both look nice. One is thiner than the other. Isn’t that what we want?
This is Miami.
Well, hell. Give me a break.
I’ll give you the tummy ads. They need those.
Why don’t they put the men up there with 40 pound man boobs? Hello? Plastic surgeons! You are missing an entire market!
You don’t see a snap of a man’s ass up on the billboard…with the tag, “Lift it high, lift it proud!”
Have penis sag? Not a problem. There’s a solution for that, let us show you how.
Something isn’t right.
Our bodies. Costumes we wear on earth. (can’t wait to see my angel outfit….or at the rate I’m going I could be collecting some horns.)
Okay so over the last few weeks I’ve had two zits on my collar bone.
Yep. Front and center. Right there. About 2 inches apart.
I have made up a story about them. They’re from a piercing gone bad.
“Yes, I’d like to have my collar bone pierced please….Mr. Tattoo Man.”
Maybe not all piercing professionals are tattooed, however the one that did my……well, he was well tattooed. In Vegas.
Since I’ve been staring at these two bumps for what seems like eternity, I’m now actually considering a collar bone piercing.
I mentioned it to my other half the other night and he nearly spit up his wine.
But then I ponder the eternal question…………………………………………..WHY?
Why have my collar bone pierced?
Okay 7 ear piercing? Fine. Nipple piercings? Possibly.
Tongue? Too painful, but okay for oral excitement…if you can get through the piercing….good on you. No. Wait. Good on me!
Have you seen this guy? Okay, watch the link. FANTASTIC. And oddly sensual.
The oddly colored hair doesn’t interest me. Everyone does it. No challenge. Nothing bold about it. Meh. Like a hairball on the carpet.
Zombie Boy? Well now he’s something. (Hint: see the link above)
It started with boobs. Fake books. Woman needed (and still want) bigger boobs. Ok, I’d go one size larger. But what happens if you want to return them?
Fake eyelashes? Eye lash extensions? Odd. There’s a Group On currently…if interested. Do men get eye lash extensions?
Hair extensions. Which, if you’re going to wear them, I don’t want to see the little strips of tape. Get a lesson on how to wear your hair! MEN – warn your woman if her tape things are showing. (Yes, that is the technical term thank you. After all, your woman is a reflection of you!) And what do you do when you’re getting ready to roll around with the hottie? You have to have a disclaimer: “Excuse me but my hair isn’t real?” Otherwise, he may pull out a chunk and we’re into a horror story in 20 seconds flat! But how do you even bring that up in a conversation? I know someone and I asked her that question.
Yep. That’s basically it. Hey….something I need to tell you.
Really? At my age? In that position? I have other things I need to worry about. News flash……the hair on my head isn’t one of them.
Of course, I have been tempted many times to try extensions.
If I had to confess about them to my romance cover novel superstar….I’d say something like….”Unlike those you see in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, I may not have a glass eye, peg leg or octopus whiskers….but my hair is fake.”
Ear lobe disks. That’ all I’m saying.
If I could get something done to my physical self…..I’d ask for height. Run Forest Run!
As a shorter person with top shelf grocery aisle issues, I’d be fine with 4 more inches.
Four inches can do a lot more than you think.
