When I first started this blog I had a lot of posts that related to the “girls.” For you who don’t know who the “girls” are, well it is that somewhat matched set of body parts on a woman’s chest that come in as many sizes and shapes as there are women. Personally, I am quite well endowed. I wear a 48J, yes they come that big and even bigger. I think one of the largest cup sizes that you can buy fairly easily is an M cup, but now that one of the main custom fit bra companies went out of business last year after they bought the rights, patterns, etc. to all the competition, it is more difficult than ever to find a decent fitting bra if you are larger than the normal girl.

Okay, so back to the “girls.” I have wrote posts on bras, the fun of trying to keep the girls out of people’s way, especially waiters who try not to hit them with a plate and then get embarrassed when they accidentally brush one, to the inevitable crumbs down the cleavage no matter what you do. My post today is about making a date with the “Girls.” The date I would be talking about is for your mammogram. I admit it, I absolutely despise mammograms. I am only 51, but have had at least one a year for the past 13 years. I got started early as cancer is in my family, but not breast cancer, I am rather large, and not sure really why, but I have had a lot of them.

I think the worst mammogram I ever had was in 2008 and we were getting ready for the presidential election. The lady doing the test was adamantly against Obama; I was and still am against him but didn’t think discussing politics during medical testing is a really smart thing to do. The problem was she was in a talking mood and waited until she had me stuck in the machine with no way to get lose and started telling me why Obama was bad for America. I did agree with her, but this machine was squashing the crap out of my boobie, I am stuck, and I just want to get out of there. I just said, yes, yes, yes, and waited for her to finish her rant and let me out of the machine. I swore after that to never get a mammogram anywhere near close to any major political or world event. Last thing I want is to be is stuck in a machine in a rather compromising state and in the middle of a discussion I really don’t want to be a part of.

The real reason I was writing this post was to remind all those women and men out there that before the holidays hit you need to schedule your mammogram. If you are 40 or over and haven’t had your first mammogram talk to your physician and see if it is time to start getting them. Early prevention is the best way to keep your girls intact, and it really isn’t that bad. Having a mammogram is extremely better than getting a tooth pulled or even going to the dentist, but not sure that is the best tactic for getting people in for their mammogram. I saw a billboard the other day that said “Make an appointment with the girls,” and it was advertising for mammograms. I really liked that. I mean you make dates with your girlfriends, and the “girls” on your chest should get as much attention as your female friends do.

If you find yourself in a financial situation that a mammogram might not be in the budget go online and do a search in your area for low cost mammograms. There are too many programs out there to help with that. There is no reason anyone should go without a mammogram due to money, there are just too many resources out there to help you out.

So, this Sunday when you watch a football game and see the pink shoes, pink hats, pink socks, pink flags, pink, pink, pink, remember it is time to schedule your mammogram and make a date with the “girls.” I am sure there is a loved one in your life that will be glad you did. Till next time….

I am back.  I haven’t posted in a while due to family and time commitments, but now I  have found something I really wanted to ramble about.  Okay, I admit it, I did not vote for Obama and he is not on my list of people I like or at this point respect, but this has more to do with what is expected from some one in a certain position/job.  I really do believe we have one of the worst dressed/appearing first ladies in a long, long time.  I mean really, what is she wearing in this picture?  Is this how she represents America?  What happened to the class of a Laura Bush or Jackie Kennedy?  I can’t think of a first lady in recent years who would be caught dead in an outfit like this, let alone be on a trip to represent America.  It is bad enough that the rest of the world is laughing at America.  I mean we used to be the power nation, other countries respected us, now they just make jokes about us.  I am not talking about politics at this point, I am wanting to make a point that when a person is in a certain position or job that they are expected to play the part.  I just saw a list today that Michelle Obama was ranked #1 of the most powerful women in the world.  How they figured this out is beyond me, but knowing that millions of people, mainly women and young girls are looking at her as a role model, I really do think her choices dress wise are really pretty pathetic.  I admit, I don’t dress that great, but I also am not in the public eye making an impression to the world about what the first lady of the USA is trying to portray.  I saw a picture the other day of Michelle Obama coming out of Air Force One in some type of shorts, tennis shoes and a frumpy shirt, let’s get real here.  Who is dressing this woman?  With the amount of staff she has had to hire it seems like someone should have some sort of taste, but apparently not.  I don’t really like Rachel Zoe, but maybe she could make the first lady look presentable.  I honestly do not have a problem that we have a person of color in the White House, I just wish it had been someone with more class.  I have found that over the years you cannot buy class, no matter how much money or power you have.  Till next time…

The other night I posted on Facebook my opinion of Obama’s speech. My point was he talks a great game (proved that by getting elected) but I really felt a lot of what he said was BS that would never get done. I was very nice in my comments, but ended up with a guy telling me how wrong I was and he deleted me as a friend. He said my posts made me sound angry and bitter and he didn’t want friends like that. Hmmm, for those who know me I am pretty laid back and easy going. I guess the older I get the grumpier I appear. I thought in the USA we had the freedom to express ourselves. I had some other friends defend me, but I really don’t understand why they had to. Oh well, I really could not remember who the guy was as I have bunches of FB friends that I have no clue who they are other than we are the same high school graduating class. I keep most of them as friends as I need them as neighbors on some of the FB games … LOL. At least on my blog if you don’t like what I say you can just close the page or comment before you go. Till next time…
