Anatomy Lesson

While on vacation in Hawaii, I was finally able to answer a question that has plagued me since I was a teenager.

"Do boobs float?"

I always wanted to know this after reading a provocative novel wherein one male character was captivated by the boyancy of the female character's chest when they went swimming. The idea made sense but, seeing as how I have been flat practically all my life, I never had the opportunity to find out. I didn't really feel comfortable asking some stranger with "the proper instruments." And I couldn't really STARE at women on the beach or in a pool to find out (hmmm, maybe with better sunglasses?).

And there was no way in hell I was going to ask my mom. Or flatter my "blessed" sister by asking her.

Since having a baby, parts of my body kinda "shifted" -- I guess you could say. For those of you looking for one more excuse to NOT have a baby, I am delighted to report that having a baby doesn't permanently increase the size of your bust in any way, BUT it sure does leave you with a bunch of extra skin your body has no use for. Hot, I know.

And this is the reason that I could finally answer that troubling anatomical question. After spending a week in the waters of Waikiki Beach, I am happy to say that, YES, BOOBS DO FLOAT! And it's super hot (even if you have boobs that usually look like a chef accidently stapled two thick pancakes to your chest).

Does this apply to boobs that now, post baby, look like a pair of tube socks? Half filled with sand?

No reason. Just wondering.

In the words of my boyfriend, "When you've got a pair of tits in your face, you're not wishing they were different."

Hee hee. At least you have a sense of humor about it. I am back to my post partum rack of doom (F cup, my gawd) and I intend to enjoy it a bit this time. At least I cannot see my belly over my rack.
