Motivation, thy name is corset.  
There is nothing like the feeling of standing in a Dillard's department store dressing room with that damnable unflattering florescent lighting and ill painted walls that make your reflection in the mirrors (that have to be some they got from a frickin' funhouse) pallid and wan.

You stand and gaze at your reflection, willing yourself not to flinch, and inspect the piece of lingerie that you have on. You know that you will wear said piece of lingerie for thousands of people, and it's enough to make you seriously consider MacGuyvering your vacuum cleaner hose into a makeshift liposuction device and getting after some of the cellulite on your thighs. It's definitely enough to make you steadfast on sticking to your diet. It's enough to make you regret everything you ever put in your mouth... like... ever. Ever, ever, ever.


I think I've managed to find something provocative without being slutty.

Which is a sentence I couldn't have predicted writing before a month ago.

You are so much braver than I!

I don't feel brave. If I had to pick an adjective, it would be chubby.

I think this is why I went into teaching instead of theater--I will never, ever have to wear lingerie in front of thousands of people. :)

It's daunting. I'm not gonna lie.

You are so very brave. Not to mention freaking beautiful no matter what those evil mirrors say.

good heavens woman! I want to be at least very similar to you when I grow up, (or, y'know, in the 6 ish years til E is grade 4 age) so stop your talk about all those negative-y things,yes? (It's disillusioning, is what it is.... just kidding. But seriously, I love you.)

You're gonna rock that lingerie and the show!

And, you know, thanks for providing me with some giggles today. I love your sense of humor. :D
