Asking your spouse if any article of clothing makes anything on your body look big is just a no win situation. It is sort of unfair to put your spouse in the precarious position of having to answer such a loaded question. You can see the fear in their eyes, “Oh God, not this question….anything but the “does this make my _____ look big” question. Today I had the unique opportunity to ask Scott, “Hey does this shirt make my drain look big?”
I have a drain that comes from the depths of my chest and out through my arm pit. It is a lovely bit of tubing that ends in a bulb like thing that keeps the swelling down. It then attaches to the “Oh so sexy” bra that I got after surgery. There is a velcro loop that keeps the bulb from swinging around and pulling the tubing out. I don’t think that they sell these at Victoria’s Secret. I have to keep the drain in until there is less than 30 cc output in two consecutive 24 hour periods.
Anyway, we were going for a walk (yes I ventured out!) and before we left I asked the loaded question any women would ask “Honey does this shirt make my drain look big?” Scott looked at me, stared fear in the face and without skipping a beat said “What drain?” Gotta love a guy who makes you feel beautiful!
