Let the Girls Free!!!!
I was reading one of the many "homesteading" magazines the other day, and came across a very interesting article.
WARNING! WARNING! FROM THIS POINT FURTHER IT IS ABOUT "WOMEN STUFF". IF YOU ARE OFFENDED OR GROSSED OUT BY "WOMEN STUFF", DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER . LOOK AWAY! GO AND READ A HUNTING MAGAZINE OR A SPORTS MAGAZINE. NOTHING TO READ HERE. Ok, you have been warned. lol
Anyway, I was reading this article about how wearing a bra can cause breast cancer. What????? I've wore a bra, well, almost all my life! I'm one of those women that went from a training bra to a size D over night. Then add on extra weight and WOW, massive bahoogas! But for the purpose of getting the most information to my followers, I decided to do an experiment. I was going to sacrifice my body by going bra-less. (For information purposes only, of course.)
So today I got up and got dressed. It's weird not putting on a bra. I felt, well, naked. But because I was doing this for you guys, I pressed on. :0) I will tell you, it's not as warm as wearing a bra, but it's not horrible either. As I went about doing my daily chores, I noticed things were, um, different. Things like, when I was dipping water from our cistern to give to the animals, when I was leaning over the block wall, the girls got in the way and they kept getting smashed against the blocks. Ouch! Also without the extra protection from the bra, hay pokes places that are not use to getting poked. Double ouch!!!(Believe me, that dose NOT feel good.) And as I was riding the four wheeler checking on the animals, well, let's just say the girls would not behave. If someone would have been watching, they would have had a sight to see.
Speaking of sights to see, the UPS guy just "happened" to pick that day to deliver a package that we'd been waiting for. Talk about an awkward situation. I think for me more than for the driver. So from that point on, I decided the experiment was over. I believe I can sleep without a bra, but going all day without one, not only felt weird, but it was uncomfortable. Maybe girls with smaller breast could do it, but my bahoogas are way too big to be let loose. I don't want to hurt anyone, myself included. So for the sake of not injuring someone, the bra will be back.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, bra wearer.
