Mammary mania

OK I admit it! I listen to ZM in my car! My excuse is that it keeps me up with their 3-song playlist and I get kudos with my students for knowing the music. Anyway, they have this promotion going called The Nip Tuck Truck. Every week they spin a wheel and give away one kind of elective surgery - laser eye treatment (yes I entered for that), porcelain tooth veneers etc.

This week it's boobies. Breast enhancement, whatever that means. And all the way to work I had to listen to a debate about whether 'enhancement' should mean any kind of breast surgery, or should they separate enlargement and reduction? Because enlargement is about cosmetically improving (?) the look of your breasts, but reduction is usually done for medical reasons (pain, posture etc). It's a $12000 operation either way. Got me thinking, if I had enormous boobies, would I want to be lumped in with the Itty Bitty Titty Committee when lining up for free surgery? Probably not.

Moot point, really, since I'm microscopic and happy that way, but I feel for the hooter-ladies amongst us.. there is such a thing as too much.

Anyway. In other news, this week I get an F for communication, and yes I do feel like an idiot.
