Beth (302/365)

Beth G.: Who really wants to hear all that ugly gossip? What business is it of yours who in town has had a boob job? Why do you always talk so loud? When will you finally move to that gated community that keeps your type in?

This is a forty-four word excerpt from In Question, a piece I recently wrote.

So, who had the boob job?

Helen said...

I never thought about a gated community keeping someone in... interesting perspective!

PS This is going off on a tangent, but have you heard about the thingamaboob? Probably not, it's a key chain put out by the Canadian Cancer Society to increase awareness about the importance of breast cancer screening.

Where I live (which could be named Shallowsville) just about every one has had something done. I am proud to say I'm not one of them.

Although I've never heard of it till now I love the thingamaboob key chain. A very good friend is a BC survivor (9 years). She had breast cancer in her late 30's.
