it was probably me you saw...

If you saw a one-boobed soccer mom type out walking in shorts, t-shirt, baseball cap and mp3 player - that was me.  I don 't know how other one boobed gals do it, but I just can't do the prosthesis thing (be it a sock or official form - yes, I usually use a folded up sock, it's the most comfortable for me LOL!) all the time - or even some of the time.  I only do it for the more "formal" occasions, like going to the mall or out to eat at McDonalds.  But wearing a bra tires me out. How ludicrous is that??  A jog bra is okay, but not with anything stuffed in it.  And I won't go out in public without a bra at all - heavens!!  I'm much too puritanical for that.  However, I have overcome my puritan ways to at least go without in the privacy of my own home.  Now, I'm overcoming some vanity by walking my boys to school with one side flat.  And going on my walks with one side flat.  I'm a bit unsure about the school thing.  I don't want to scare the kids or make my own children oddballs.  I wear big baggy tshirts that have logos emblazened on the front - so in my own mind it's enough camoflage that the casual person won't notice anything.  One thing I've learned in my time is that people don't look at you as much as you imagine.  But with kids, I may be deluding myself.  I dunno.

So, if you see me, or someone like me with 1 boob, or lopsided, square or flat boobs - just think charitable thoughts and pretend that nothing is out of the ordinary.  And I think it's safe to say that this goes for the bald gals too.  I bet sometimes your head is just too tender to wear that hot, scratchy thing - just to walk around the block or to the mailbox!!

You go girl! Rock the one boob look! I think I am so past the point in my life now how I care what people think I would do the same thing. So do what is most comfortable for you!
