Conversation


Last night, my boyfriend and I were having a conversation.  One thing lead to another and don't ask me how but lypo and plastic surgery came up.  I told The SM that if I ever had plastic surgery done (which I won't, this is all hypothetically speaking) that I would have the stretch marks removed from my tummy.

The SM asked me why.  I told him that no matter how much weight I lose or how defined my stomach muscles are, because of my stretch marks, my tummy will never look good.

He told me that was the most ridiculous thing he'd ever heard.  He asked me, if he were in the military and had to fight a war and came home with scars would I be ashamed of them.  Would I want him to hide them, to cover them up?  If he were to make a sacrifice and receive scars should he have plastic surgery to have them 'fixed'?  I told him of course not!!

He then told me, why should I then after the sacrifices I've made to have our children feel that I should be ashamed and want to hide my scars on my body?  My body is beautiful as is the sacrifice I'd made bringing The Natives into this world and I should be proud of my body and scars.......

Speechless............

  2. Why? Why would you send me this, and not warn me? I just put on my church makeup, and it's gonna be totally gone. Seriously. I had NEVER seen things that way. That kid of yours - ran out of speech, myself.
