Sorry. Guess I got a little carried away with all the countdowns.

I apologize about the title of this entry, too. However, it does pertain to the topic at hand. And it got your attention, right?

Anyway, I don't know how many of you have seen this (the link to it can be found on the Ready or Not page of this website. And, by the way, they blocked out the Number One reason because I originally taped the piece for booksellers, and what I'm saying there gives away the ending of the book. They also cut out the part where I danced to Sir Mix-a-Lot's BABY GOT BACK. I was so bummed), but I would just like to say that my boobs are nowhere near that big in real life, and that they only look that way due to the camera angle.

Seriously, I was as surprised as you were when I saw it. I was like, “Where did THOSE come from?” and even looked around for them. But as usual, there was nothing to see.

So, in answer to the question a few of you have asked, no, I have not had a boob job, and I would NEVER have a boob job. Not because I am ethically opposed to boob jobs or plastic surgery, because I'm not. I would totally get plastic surgery if it didn't hurt and if they could do it while I was awake, with a local, because I am terrified of anesthesia.

But, as it is, I am totally happy with my boobs the way they are.

Anyway, here is the new “adult” book author photo (notice absence of cat) that I had taken last month. You can see in it that my boobs are absolutely normal sized.

Well, normal for me.

See? Told you.

More later.

Much love,

Meg
