On Aging Disgracefully

Women Who Think Too Much by Jeanne Marie

So yesterday, I put on a sun-dress and all I could see was my skinny, saggy arms and my skinny, stick legs and no boobs, so I changed. I put on stretch pants because they look good on skinny legs and a big t-shirt which hid the no boob situation.

But it was too late.

I had already seen myself in that sun-dress and as I’d I removed it I’d thought; this may be the last time I put on a little sun-dress because I look like a crazy cat lady wearing little girl clothes.

When my primary care physician retired, I had to go to his office and pick up my medical files. I hadn’t been to his office for several years because I get most of my care at the Cancer Center, and my insurance had dropped him. When I walked in to get my files, his office manager stood up, thrust out her chest and said “Look? No boobs!” “¿Que pasó?” I asked. She said she had breast cancer and told the oncologist to “just cut ’em off”. She said, “I don’t need boobs these days!” I thought that was a pretty healthy attitude for what is a devastating situation for many women. I’m not a woman, but I think the wrinkles and sagging skin would be more frustrating than having smaller boobs. You look good in the skinny photo.
