Another Purpose for Boobies

The remnants of Hurricane Jeanne have been whipping (more like dripping) through Boston since yesterday. The rain has been pretty heavy at times – as it was yesterday when I was heading to class.

As I walked through Harvard Yard, I noticed a female who had apparently just exited a building. She was using one of those silly miniature umbrellas that essentially are of no use. This woman was a petite little thing…but with ENORMOUS breasts. Her umbrella succeeded at keeping her head and shoulders dry, but her boobs were too large to be sheltered and the rain was simply too heavy. Consequently, her tight-ish cotton shirt was all dry – except for the 4 inches or so of her breasts that were sticking out and completely drenched.

It made me realize that if I’m ever on Survivor, I’m not going to vote out big-breasted women. I believe that with a dense-enough fabric, clothing over an ample bosom could create a pool effect with the rain water. I’d never go thirsty.

    thats the one thing i miss as a gay man. a full set of breasts, preferably a C cup.

    ive spoken to many gay men who feel the same way. i wonder what it is? why do breasts elicit such tender, warm memories?

    OK, this is very logical–you will have graduated from an infantile dependence on milk from breasts to an adult need for water from them. In both cases, the woman is the provider of life-sustaining liquid.

    Chris, I have never experienced breast-envy, although by raising two adopted daughters solo, I certainly assumed the architypical role of “the nurturer.” Possibly getting very political about my right as a MAN to nurture
    kept me from seeing myself in any way in a feminine form. But for relaxation I bake and embroider. Go figure!

    I always wondered what they were for. I mean other than being objects that make the straight boys and babies drool.

    Nice to know that they are multi-functional.
