I need new bras.
Forgive me, male readers, if I have caused you any kind of discomfort or embarrassment. But it is the cold, hard truth.
And after hearing this story of a woman whose life was saved by her bra, I feel as though no ordinary bra will do. She was hit by a runaway bullet, but it bounced off her bra strap, resulting in only a graze. So now I not only need something supportive, but bulletproof, too.
Really, one never knows when it might come in handy.
So, while folding laundry the other day, I caught something out of the corner of my eye. I looked down to see this poking out of my sweater:
This, dear friends, is the underwire from my last good bra.
But I'm thinking of keeping it. Might deflect a bullet.
