Nancy has a former coworker who had a boob job. These aren’t the kind of things that I normally express an opinion about to her. “No, I think they look GREAT.” or “Yeah, I noticed she could use a some enhancement.”
There just doesn’t seem to be a winning place for me in that conversation. So I just look interested (not too interested) and remain non-committal. hmmm-uhhh, as I flip the channels.
In this person’s case, she really did need help. Look at the ads in Big Jugs and Trucks, and she is the perfect “before” picture.
She has a pretty face, is smart, and fun to be around. But she actually had a concave chest.
She did something about it, I guess. I haven’t seen her, and probably won’t since they have moved away.
Couple thoughts about boob jobs and how men should handle it. Say something? Or ignore it?
I knew her well enough that I was going to make some wildly inappropriate remark. I suspect the right thing to do is compliment
them her on how great they she looks.
But doesn’t that just objectify her? She looked nice before.
Secondly, I never thought about what she might tell her young girls, ages 12 and eight. Never fear the boob docs have a book.
My Beautiful Mommy. Awww. Isn’t that sweet?
she wasn’t sure how to talk to her son about the procedures she was considering. That’s when he showed her the manuscript for his children’s picture book, “My Beautiful Mommy” (Big Tent Books), out this Mother’s Day. It features a perky mother explaining to her child why she’s having cosmetic surgery (a nose job and tummy tuck). Naturally, it has a happy ending: mommy winds up “even more” beautiful than before, and her daughter is thrilled.
Notice that the title isn’t My More Beautiful Mommy. That sure is a mixed message, right? I guess kids care if Mommy goes to the the doc, and to the hospital. But do they really need to know all the details? Especially if it’s to come out looking better? What do you tell boys?
Dads don’t discuss their vasectomies with their sons and daughters. Do they?
