I sit in a ubiquitous Starbucks, the rising sun over my left shoulder, my hair alight with its rays. I’m facing the steady trickle of caffeine-seeking people and I notice a tall man dressed in nice slacks and a light blue button down. His black belt with its shiny buckle glint in the sunshine.
He looks at me from his place in line. I shift a little, suddenly aware of my posture, kick off my flip-flops and tuck my legs under my bottom. He’s extremely good-looking. Why is he looking at me?
I look back down at what I was doing and feel a familiar stirring, a pulse in my vulva lips.
A minute passes and I feel eyes on me. He’s at the creamer station now, his left hand noticeably ring-free. His hair is dark and cropped close. I imagine he smells clean and grown up.
I hold his gaze for only a split second, shy. I wonder if maybe he’s noticed my Niners shirt. Perhaps he’s a CA transplant like so many others in my city? But he certainly can’t be looking at me. My jeans are faded, my hair pinned back with bobbypins. I look like a grad-student.
I draw my eyes back down to this interminable Boobday post.
And when I look up a third time, he’s disappeared back into rush hour, gone like a whisper. I feel the haughty look of a missed opportunity and am chagrined. Perhaps another bright and humming Friday morning will prove more favorable.
I can only wonder.
Want to participate in Boobday? Read the guidelines and send me a pic. I don’t censor the images, so there’s no “making the cut.” That would completely defeat the purpose of Boobday. I want to provide a space for women (cis and trans, bi, straight, gay, skinny to fat) to expose themselves and feel proud of what their mamas gave them.
If you don’t include your Twitter handle, your post URL, and whether or not you want to be anonymous, I’m not going to do any investigating, but also won’t assume anything, so be sure to have all the info every single time! If it’s not in your email, it won’t be in the post. No blog post required if you just want to post on mine.
Also, only post your Boobday pic on Fridays and always include the Boobday button in the post and a link back to me.
NOT my tits:
