Oh Ma'am! Oh Gram!

Yeah, I'm spending a goodly portion of my day today getting my boobs smashed on purpose. Whee.

Mother's a survivor, I'm 40, lumpy breasts, blah, blah, blah healthcare cakes.

Since I don't have a flower photo for you yet I leave you with this image: I have very small breasts and very big feet. You see the challenge?

I think it's really going to hurt when I stub my toe.


  1. Oh, that's right - we're 40 now, aren't we. Damn. I'm sure my OB will schedule me a smashing session sometime this year. Sigh.

    Good luck!

  2. Gotta love the boob smasher. That reminds me, it's time for me to schedule this year's trauma.

  3. They already started me on those, on account of I'm lumpy. I didn't think it was as bad as everyone made it out to be.

    Careful with the walking, though.

  4. I'm so jealous of your health insurance. I've never been squished. and it's been ohhhhhhh I'd say going on four or five years since my hoo ha has been checked.


    maybe this is the year I get healthcare.

  5. Z, what's the deal with you for health insurance. Can you buy in to something at the salon or do you have to buy your own? I just read this article about how NOT COUNTING BIRTHING EXPENSES insurance companies are charging women more than they charge men for individual insurance. So, we aren't getting equal pay for equal work AND we're being charged more for the same care. Awesome.

  6. Not to stir anything up, but the works are a bit more complicated for the female types. It cost a whole bunch more to get my female cat "fixed" than it did for my male cat. I'm guessing it's a similar tale for the humans.

    You want sexism? You don't need me to tell you that Viagra is covered and birth control pills aren't. Not to mention dildos.

  7. Once you add in the appointments for prostate cancer and viagra and whatnot I'd bet we were all about equal. I think what they're doing is penalizing women because women are more likely to go in for preventative care.
