Yesterday, I swung by a girly store to look for some negligee for a friend who is getting married.  As I browsed the skivvies, a woman came up to me and pointed to a particular bra.

“This one looks SO GOOD on,” she declared.

“Excellent!” I replied.  And… awkward? I thought.  Because who likes to talk to strangers about their undergarments – I mean, besides Southwest Airlines, and Annie Parsons on her blog?

“In fact,” the woman continued, “I’m wearing it right now!”

Oh gosh oh Lord oh no no no no –

She pulled down her shirt and showed me not just a strap of the bra, but an entire boob of the bra.

And what can I say?  I bought it.

    Your blog convinces me that these things only happen to the people who can make them into a great story. :)

    The same thing happened to me when I went to Victoria Secret. It could only have been more embarrassing if I happened to be with John…because we would both be looking at another woman’s breasts.

    Second… all joking aside, the phrase “an entire boob of the bra” rolls right off the tongue.

    Ok… maybe not all joking.
