Last weekend, a lady at the Macey’s bra department changed my life. She made me buy three bras. She gave me advice about how to take care of my chest. She also told me how to fold my bras.
And then she whispered something in my ear that I will never forget.
It was strange. And profound. And enlightening.
The next day, Cameron said what are you thinking about? because i was sitting on our bed, in my robe, holding the hair dryer, staring at the wall. I said, what? He said, is something wrong? And I said, no. He said then what are you doing? And I said, I was just thinking about what that lady said at Maceys.
he laughed. I kept staring. Then I said, I wonder if she’ll show up in a novel or in my journal.
He said, you’re serious?
You should go back and talk to her again if you are going to write about her.
I looked at him. No. That would ruin it.
He was confused.
Do you have moments like these? Filed away in your head? People you’ve seen, things they’ve said, feelings you’ve had? They don’t last long but they linger in your head for years. I think this lady will be with me for a long time.
If you need a new bra, go to Macey’s.
