CONSTRAINT: (any gender, mid twenties to late life)
I've been doing some serious thinking... about bras. It was an article I read this morning. One side of the debate is this breaking news that bras can be not only uncomfortable and sexually oppressive and all that, but also MEDICALLY, that amount of constraint has recently been proven to be bad for the... you know... boobs.
But then there was this other side that was all like: "A bra is not going to KILL your boobs and if you've got really big ones AND if you have to do a lot of running around, don't you WANT something besides your arm to keep them from flapping all over the place? That shit can HURT-- " and so forth.
It really got me thinking, Shane. It's the big question, isn't it? Do you maintain the norm and keep everything secured or do you just let it all hang out? 'Cause there are consequences, either way.
And I've decided I'm just gonna "let it all hang out" and if shit flies off the handle, so be it. I care about you Shane. And it's been killing me to be working alongside you, day after day and not have you knowing: Shane, from the first moment we met...
I've been working as an undercover police officer.
And I'm sorry if that complicates our relationship but I'm hoping you can actually find a better life with me, a REAL life with me now that I've-- you know-- uh-- now that I've gotten this off my chest?
