My mother,

The laundress,

you may recall

Visited recently.


Mothers can say things…

Only a mother can

Such as…

“well honey when you fix your hair, we can go”

“um… Mom… it is fixed”

“Oh… I see”

Read as…

“how do you expect to find a man when you look like shit”




During Mom’s visit,

We went shopping,

For bras.

We went a lot of places…






Is large busted.

An issue I do not have.


After 2 ½ hours

And no water…

or nourishment…

I was being to hallucinate

Something about George Clooney and chocolate sauce…

I can’t say any more.


I had to address the situation.

“Mom, is there seriously not one bra in Bali,

(all 24,000 square feet),

that will make the girls happy?”



I have miffed my mama.


“Well Kelly…

You are so small,

you can really buy your bras anywhere.”

(she stopped short of saying at the Children’s Place…

But she was headed there).



You know I just got measured at Nordstrom’s



They measured me two ENTIRE sizes bigger than what I thought.

I am am now a 3_X size.”

(Feel the actual size is too much to share but…

lets just say when you go from the size of an M&M to a Milk Dud…

It is not a major developmental accomplishment.)


I am proud,

Proud of my growing boobalas.


But Mom…

Being my Mom.

Squashed my new found confidence, with a large mallet.

The great Whac-A-Mole.


Her face


In disbelief…

and search


“Well honey…

Where are THEY?”


As if… they were hiding.


Ego fully in check now,
