Yesterday was crazy busy, I call it a Type ‘A’ Day when I Do All The Things.
So when I finally lay down in bed it felt like a touchdown.
“Yes, she’s in bed! The crowd goes wild.”
My body relaxed into the mattress, and bliss washed over me. My eyes fluttered closed. And I’m sure a beam of moonlight fell upon my porcelain skin.
Everything was perfect.
Then I had to pee, again. I tried to ignore it, but alas my moment of perfection was over.

It wasn’t until I was in my mid-thirties and working with teens at the group home that I found out some girls/women sleep in their bras.
Uuuumm, why they hell would you do that?
The girls told me it was so they’re breasts wouldn’t sag when they were older.
But bras are uncomfortable. I always assumed that as soon as a woman got home they all changed into comfy clothes and took off their bras. It’s what my mom always did.
But to sleep in a bra to try and keep my boobs from sagging, I don’t think it’s worth it, or honestly would work.
It makes me think of the pictures of women who would wrap their chins and necks in bandages while they slept to prevent the skin from sagging. I doubt that worked either.
These don’t look comfy for sleeping in.
Then I began to wonder (yes, you should be scared) do men wear jock straps to bed to keep their balls from sagging? And how much sag does a man gain over the years of gravity constantly tugging on his delicate bits?
So what about you. Do you wear a bra, or jock strap, or bandages to bed in hopes of defying gravity?
