Note to the Girls [Sep. 17th, 2008|11:24 am]
terribleturnip


You have two more days before, once again, I have to wrestle you into submission and get you back in the damn bodice. Yes, I know, if only I could keep the Hands out of potato chip bags and off of brownies, you'd fit better.

Noted.

But really, this is going to be a two and a half-day weekend, what with the Talk Like a Pirate gig on Friday night at Piratz Tavern (where the Captain will be performing and it's not really a family show, but still, don't embarrass me....)and then two days at Faire.

Last weekend, getting dressed, you two were like getting two three-year-olds ready for a family portait. Not wanting to get dressed, not wanting to settle down and behave...it's hot, it's itchy, where's my t-shirt...honestly. I'd get one of you all set and while I was doing that the other one went wandering. We were finally all set, and by the time I got in the car, both of you had cleverly escaped the bodice and I had to spend all day shoving you back in there.

And I don't have to tell you how much it hurts when you're not properly confined and we get a big bear hug -- it's not the GOOD kind of pinch, lemme tell you.

Can we call a truce for the remaining weekends?

If necessary, I'd be happy to have a nice hand-to-hand man-to-man hand-to-woman talk with them.

Or something like that.

Yeah it's rather a pain in the ass when they go all free range and start visiting strangers and such.

Then again, mine grab salsa and beer when I'm not looking (evidence by the splotches on my shirts) so why should we be surprised.

Can I hug if I promise not to pinch??

I'll do wrangling duty if required. See what a good friend I am? ::ahem:: ;-)

While others may want to be supportive, I just want to apologize in advance for the drool stains I may or may not leave in appreciation of your struggles.

Honey, if you ever find the right words to make breasts behave, please let me know. I'm right with you there on getting jabbed by steel boning in sesitive places right in the midst of an otherwise lovely bear hug. Owie!

See your mistake to think that they had a choice. You should have disciplined them quickly and effectively. After all those brats are - - - oh your breast.

:: Puts hand up:: If you need help call someone else. If you need hinderance and remember why they are a good thing. You got my number call. Seriously.

I work mircles with breast.

Sorry, I got nothin' useful, just this self-pitying lament...

MINE ARE TWICE THEIR NORMAL SIZE thanks to the Pregnancy Boob Fairy and I seem to be the only one on the planet who isn't ecstatic about that.

Then again, I'm the one wearing them.

My dear, I'm right there with you. Mine seemed to double overnight. Thankfully, they weren't massive to begin with.

Also, there's no way in hell I'm shoving them into a corset, bodice, or any other tight lacing contraption right now.
