Well-Spoken! (Day 3)


Welcome to today’s episode of Politically Incorrect: Going to Hell in a Handbasket.

Sorry, I have no idea what that phrase means, nor its origins. If you have a burning desire to find out,  Google it, or check Wikipedia.

Anyway – this is the final day of my three-day quote challenge, and it’s been a lot of fun. I am so pleased with the blogosphere right now that all I can say is:


Quote: My cup runneth over.

Author:  Hebrew Bible (Psalm 23.5)

Most people understand this quote to mean that there is an abundance of something – joy, money, love, etc. Sometimes it’s used in a sarcastic manner when receiving a gift that is less than one expected.

My readers will be pleased that I managed to restrain myself from posting a photograph of the politically incorrect meaning of the phrase – no one wants to see old lady boobs, even if I were brave enough to pose for such a disturbing picture.

As a young woman, prior to childbirth, I bemoaned the fact that I had less breast tissue than many of my friends.  Nature has a way of taking care of such unfairness – after birthing and nursing three children, and subsequently gaining weight in all the wrong places (or right places, if you’re looking at it from a male viewpoint), my cups did indeed runneth over.

I managed to remedy that situation somewhat last summer during my construction-enforced shopping trips. When we had no bathroom at home, I had to run to the nearest Bon-Ton, and the ladies room was adjacent to the lingerie department.  There was a great summer sale on bras of every size and kind (buy 2, get 1 free!), so I stocked up.

Now my cups are containethed.

Aren’t you glad I shared all that?

    Although no longer blogging, Sammy had a series on malapropisms that came from a book “To Hell in a Henbasket” – https://bemuzin.com/2015/09/11/from-little-acorns/ I bought the book, it was quite an interesting read.


  5. I want such sales to happen here too. All the fancy bras omg. ❤️


  6. After I realized I was going to lose my rather copious breasts to cancer, I had a choice of what i wanted as replacements. I went with small and I’m really glad I did. Because since the heart surgery that rapidly followed the bilateral mastectomies, I can’t wear one … and small is so much more manageable that big. Gravity is kinder to the less amply endowed … and as we all know, gravity is a harsh mistress.

    • At one point when I was trying on bras, I heard a conversation in the room next door. The sales clerk asked what size the customer needed, and the customer said, “I’m not sure. They’re not where they used to be.” I know that feeling!
