the interest rate is at prime plus a half a cup

Today’s ‘Living’ section of the Charlotte Observer led with an article about a 32 year old woman’s experience with breast implants. Not happy that her breasts were no longer “perky” after having two children she did some shopping, finding a suitable doctor and implants to increase her 34B minus to a full 34C. A home equity loan taken out by her husband paid for everything.

I’m lucky to be married to a 50+ year old woman who is quite comfortable with her 34B image. She rarely wears a bra mainly because there is no need. She isn’t a slave to the everyday make-up routine and maintains a trim figure many women lacking her self-confidence would kill for. Even though she has never expressed interest in cosmetic surgery, I regularly tell her she is just great just the way she is.

So when I saw the full body “after” photo, the new 34C look outlined by a snug t-shirt, you know what I thought?(besides looking slightly top heavy) If she’s that insecure at 32 about her breasts, looking at her from the neck up I would have guessed she was much older and from the waist down her legs are somewhat out of proportion to her size 4 frame. I have a feeling I know what is in store for the future.

Her husband better hope their home equity line holds out.

    I can’t help but feel a little sorry for people who think so little of themselves that they feel the need to go under the knife – but only a little.
