I feel awkward. I am a happily married, modest, Christian, still very curvy housewife.
This week it's been happening more. At first I thought, "Um... is there something on my face!?" then I noticed they were kinda smiling...and... well.... I found myself with a disgusted look on my face. Like I was giving them a dirty look. Which I was. Then I would touch my bangs with my left hand waving my blingage around.
I am nothing too look at. I really think some men are just pervs. You know!? Like, c'mon buddy. I'm driving a mini van and there are two car seats in the back. Really?
I use to get some looks before the weight came on. I think I mentioned this before, but my Mom would always say out loud, in a New York accent (and I never knew why), "Take a Picture, it will last you longer!" whenever a guy was looking at me, and it was always loud enough so they could hear it. Embarrassing? I think so.
Note to self: don't do that to daughter. But also, don't let boys look at daughter.
Let me get one thing straight. It's not like every man is falling at my feet when I walk by. But it's a few looks, and it's a few more than I am use to. I don't like attention, especially when it's from a creep. I am not wearing clothes that invites looks, maybe they are admiring my hair. They wish they had some, because they are bald.
A ladies gym would really benefit for things like this.
I'm feeling uncomfortable, and weird to say, missing flying under the radar like when I was bigger. Odd. Never thought I would say that. MAYBE I am totally wrong, and they are actually thinking, "What a beast!". Hmmm.. maybe this whole post was un-necessary.
How do you comment on a post like this? I don't know, but please, oh please, do.
Love, The Curvy Housewife
