My TaTa’s are smarter than a lot of people I know. They’ve really gotten a well-rounded education and for that I am grateful. For this week’s Spin Cycle, I am going to share a story about The Twins and their higher education.

———————————————————————————

Back in college, I never really enjoyed my classes until I got into my major. There was this one class, Networking, that I absolutely loved. I would get there early to find a seat in the front and actually pay attention and ask questions. Who does that? One of the things that I enjoyed about the class was the professor’s willingness to teach. It seemed like he was singling me out of that entire room full of students and I enjoyed having someone pay such special interest in my education.

One day toward the end of the semester, I rushed into class and dropped my overloaded backpack in a heap by my desk. It was summer in Florida and I was hot and sweaty from running from the parking garage to get to class on time. As I slumped into my desk, I noticed something. I hoisted my boobs onto the table like they were a fancy purse I was carrying as an accessory. My girls are on the large size and are not the most pleasant companions to carry around all day. Apparently, I had gotten into the habit of using the classroom desk as a means of giving my back a break for a short while.

I was mortified at the thought of someone seeing me do this. Was this an unconscious habit that I did all of the time? Was this an unfortunate one time thing? I soon got my answer. The professor started his lecture and  walked over to my side of the room. He perched himself directly in front of my desk and gave me a little smile as he went over the day’s materials. I quickly deduced that I had been providing him with the motivation he needed all semester and in turn, he was motivating me to learn. I guess it was a win/win. I did get an A in the class but to this day, I still believe I earned it. These bitches are smokin’.

*Please note that I received an A due to my hard work and diligence, not because I showed the teacher my boobs. I might have done that in a few of my other classes if I had thought it would work. Also, I am not really under the impression that my boobs are “smokin”, but they weren’t half bad in my college days before children.

    LOL… I am not blessed with large boobs. But, if I had them, I would so have use them to get through my Elementary Functions of Electronics and Computing class.

    This is hard for me to imagine – mine get lost sometimes. Good for you, though. Gotta use every asset we have, right? That’s why I open doors with my nose.

    Great story :)

    I, too, have the big girls, and I have caught myself table propping a few times myself!! It’s so embarrassing when I realize what I’m doing. And don’t kid yourself. Your boobs are TOTALLY smokin’.

    I never had any boobs as a young person and it sucked. I do now ‘tho! It’s the one shining light of getting fat. Use ‘em if you’ve got ‘em, I say.

    Man, I wish my bra cups spilled over a bit more. I’m a little jealous of girls with nice ta-tas.

    You definitely earned the A.

    Nothing wrong with subconsciously (or consciously for that matter) using your *ahem* assets (in addition to your hard work and diligence of course) to your benefit. Men like boobs, what can you do? I learned that little lesson when I worked at the airport, some guys just talk to your chest, go figure.

    I love this. And speaking as one who has taught college students, I am sure your boobs were two of the smarter students in the class.

    Hahahahaha!

    Once, on the back of my husband’s motorcycle (on the highway) I noticed a lot of cars passing us were smiling and waving. Usually people in cars do stare when you ride so I didn’t think anything of it – until we got to the restaurant and I realized that my cheap halter top and torn and my right breast was flashing everyone in the wind!

    I never thought of my boobs as a fancy-purse sort of accessory, Casey. They would’ve been more like one of those teeny clutches you can slip a $20 and maybe a lipstick into.

    You’ve inspired me to talk about my twins. 2 years ago I had a reduction. I went from a 36I to a 36D. I never had to swim, I could just float along merrily in the ocean. Of course, I didn’t know I had feet until recently.

    Stopping by from Jen’s Spin Cycle.
    And now I am totally jealous. My boobs are more like a comma rather than an exclamation point… no way they would inspire the great minds of higher education. :)
    Oh, and no disclaimer on your part was needed. If you got ‘em, might as well enjoy ‘em.

    hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, right? And that’s an absolutely brilliant idea to find someplace to literally take a load off. I’m going to try it. Probably not publicly at first, gotta work up to that…

    Came over from the Spin Cycle and got a good laugh. My girls used to be my pride and joy. Then they checked out of town. Thanks for the laugh.

    I have this funny image of trying to clop my boobs onto a desk. I would probably throw out vertebra bending over that far and look like I was having some kind of inner ear issue.

    “These bitches are smokin’.” HA! I love it!

    I say we give men balls the size of oranges and see if they like carrying them around! I am with you, I used items to support mine and am looking forward to a reduction.
