Quick Poll re: Boobs


Last night’s conversation between Greg and me:

Greg: You put a picture of your boob on the internet.

Me: Well, sort of. It doesn’t really look like a boob and it’s for mammogram awareness, so it doesn’t count as, like, putting a picture of my boob on the internet

Greg: Except that you put a picture of your boob on the internet.

Me: That’s not entirely true. I mean, yes. Technically, it’s my boob. But it’s the radio-active, x-ray version of my boob. Like what Superman would see if he x-ray visioned it. 

Greg: Exactly. It’s a boob.

Me: Which makes me feel a little sad for Superman for being maligned as a voyeur all these years. X-ray vision isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Obviously.

Greg: It’s still a boob.

Me: Yeah, but not a boob boob. I mean, it doesn’t look like a boob. It looks more like a jello mold with vertigo.

Greg: It’s a boob.

Me: Or a drunk jelly fish.

Greg: It’s a boob.

Does this look like:

  1. a boob

  2. an anti-jello-mold campaign poster 

  3. a jelly fish who’s totally going to drunk dial his girlfriend and regret it in the morning




What do you say?

P.S. My next post will probably be about Jesus. This is your pre-whiplash warning. Also, thank God you and Greg put up with me. I am SUCH a weirdo.

P.P.S. Greg was laughing during our entire boob conversation. Horrified. But laughing. One time, when I was trying to convince him that life’s more entertaining being married to me than it would be if he’d married, say, a nice girl, I said, “SEE? You’re never bored with me!” And he said, “You’re right. I’m never bored. Never, ever bored. Frequently appalled. But never bored.”


ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.
  1. Definitely the jellyfish. And I would know because I am EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED with jellyfish. Specifically with hating them. And being stung by them.

    Also- I’ve done much, much worse. All in the name of Nursing In Public Activism. 😉 You can tell Greg he has much for which to be grateful….

  2. Hey Beth! Another Beth here 😀

    I spent all day here today: http://www.ripleyaquariums.com/canada/

    And I can assure Greg with 100% certainty that your pic could pass as a jellyfish any day of the week. Hands (tentacles?) down.

    Love your blog 🙂

  3. Jellyfish, definately a jellyfish.

  4. drunk jellyfish!!

  5. Definitely jellyfish. Although I don’t see what the big deal is about boobs. I’m currently breastfeeding my first and I’m finally understanding what all the indignant pro-breastfeeding moms are worked up about. I’m feeding my child and it’s just hunk of flesh, right? Why should I feel ashamed to whip it out in public? Sorry for the tangent…

  6. Totally thought it looked like a jellyfish before you even suggested it. =) Yes, poor, unfortunate Superman.
