I went out again without my fake foob. This is a second time in less than a week. This morning I was going for a walk around my neighborhood. Shortly into the walk I looked down and noticed my lopsided chest. As I rushed out the door to get my walk in I forgot to put my fake foob in so here I am walking around my neighborhood with one headlight.
I could have turned around but didn’t think it was worth it. While I was slightly paranoid that people I may see on a daily basis may see my lopsided chest as I thought about it more, how many people would realize notice?
First off most people are probably scrambling to get ready for work or get their kids ready for school so how many people are going to be looking out the window and notice I’m missing a boob or foob.
Second, I’m not exactly attractive enough to get looks from neighbors so I’m sure no one is looking. And I have baggage…there’s 4 more at home besides the one I’m pushing in a stroller right now.
And finally even if they did notice, so what? Does it really matter? I’m here and healthy and that’s all that matters . One boob or two, one foob or two foobs, who cares. I did what I needed to, to try to reduce a recurrence as much as I can.
As I’ve been doing, I found the humor in the situation because you have to. You have to be able to laugh after all I’ve been through. After an initial doubt and panic that I forgot to put in my fake foob, I calmed down and realized it really doesn’t matter. What mattered is getting back to the house in time so Chris didn’t have to take all four kids with him to school instead of just the two going!
