Well, happy day.... the boobies have arrived. I went to a specialty store in Tulsa on 12-23-10 to order my breast prostheses. After my fitting I was informed, "I'm sorry, but we only have one and will have to order the other". Are you kidding me? They went on to inform me that, because of the holidays, the company they ordered from would be closed for 2 weeks. Well, that's just great...but what do you do?
After many follow-up phone calls, the store finally received my order and shipped the package to me REGULAR mail. Good grief, you would think that at almost $200 a boob, over a month later, and the fact that there is a woman having to walk around with a boy chest, that they would at least overnight express it to me. Real compassionate people, huh?
The "girls" are precious, if I may say so myself. I couldn't wait to wear them to work, only to be disappointed that no one really even noticed. Now I know that nursing scrubs aren't the most flattering of clothes, but surely someone would notice. Just goes to show you that the flaws you think are a huge deal, others don't even notice. Peoplpe love you for what's on the inside, not the outside.
Of course, I wasn't going to let them go unnoticed.... so I pointed them out to everyone, lol. Many had questions why I had to wear a special bra, why I couldn't just stuff them in my regular bra (like we did in high school). The special bra has little pockets to secure the "girls", otherwise they ride up and over, and before you know it.... your walking down the hall and one of the "girls" fly out on to the floor, smiling and waving at you. You could be standing in the produce department at WalMart and holy nuts, she jumps out and there she lies.
Work has been great this week. My girlfriends wore hats with me everyday, they are the best friends ever. Tomorrow Bryan and I are going to Tulsa to see our grandson, Hunter. I can't wait to get my hands on that precious little man. Tell someone you LOVE them today..........
