Boob Blogging

There's been quite a bit happening around the ol' household the last couple of weeks.

First up, my son is looking for his own place. He's been living at home for almost a year now after doing his hitch in the Navy, and I've decided that it's time for him to get out there and tackle the world on his own.

Yep, I threw him out.

He's looking at places to live nearer his work (he's got a pretty good job, but the commute from our house is a real bitch), and the plan is for him to be out by the end of the month. Call it tough love, but sometimes if you don't kick 'em out of the nest they never learn to fly.

Secondly, and even more exciting, is related to that odd little post about googling 36CC and 36HH. Our health insurance has approved a breast reduction for our oldest daughter, Robyn. She is, ah, over-endowed* shall we say, and has suffered from chronic back pain since the age of 14. Thanks to the foresight of our wonderful family doctor, it's been documented the entire time. Robyn is just shy of 21 years old now, and my health plan has agreed that physical therapy and other non-surgical methods have been ineffective, and that in the long run a reduction would be best for her health. I can blog this because she said it was ok, plus she's already called all her friends** and relatives to let them know. Yep, we're all excited and happy for her.

So my household shall soon be rid of three big boobs.

Oh look, I made a funny.

*At 36HH, she left Barbie in the dust long ago.

**So far my favorite reactions*** have come from some of her male friends, who suggest that she should wait awhile before going through with it, because "you might like them that big when you get older". That, my friends, is looking out for your fellow man.

***My second favorite reaction comes from some of her female friends, who freak out when they find out that dad is taking her to the hospital because mom can't get the day off of work.

My first impulse (as usual) was to try something funny, because I know there's something funny there. But then I was like, "Dude, don't say anything (funny or not) about his daughter's boobs. He'll bury you in the backyard." Because if I had daughters, I would kindly ask men not to talk about their boobs in my presence. Which you seem fine with, judging by your post. So I guess I'm confused.

Good luck getting your boobs worked on?

Solei Moon Frei (Fry?) had the same problem, bless her heart. Seriously, though, 36HH? Holy crap.

sorry. sorry. sorry.

Believe me, something that "present" in a family means you get over being shy about it in a hurry. And it's really no different than having really big feet or enormous... tracts of land.

I'm happy for your daughter that she will have the surgery. Being over-endowed is NOT a blessing but a burden, including the back problems.

"So my household shall soon be rid of three big boobs."

Cute. :-)

All surgery makes me nervous so let me just wish you and your family a totally uneventful procedure!
