RECENT TELEPHONE CALL: ringgggg, call from Thomas, Inell. NY...

...


ME:  Good Morning Mother!

MOTHER:  You do still have all my measurements - right?

ME:  Yes, you just gave them to me again recently, and I have them written in my notebook.

MOTHER:  Good!  I have a request.

ME:  What's that?

MOTHER:  I need you to make me a BRA! A good fitting BRA!

INSERT:  Crickets...

ME:  NEVER!!!

ME:  Don't they still sell them at WalMart?

MOTHER:  The last time I was there I couldn't find my size.

ME:  Well, TRY TARGET!!!! 

MOTHER AND ME:  Lot's of laughter!!!

  1. Oh no! I want to learn to make my own bras, but never for anyone else :)

  2. IF (and that's a BIG IF) I did ever change my mind about learning to make bras, AND got to the place where I really did know how to get a good fit, I would certainly make bras for my Mother too. But like I've said, "don't think that's ever gonna happen"!

  3. Crickets ... hahahahahaha! Yep, that would've been me too. Right before a big loud NO!

  4. Hilarious! Don't forget, the world is her oyster if she decides to shop for bras online.

  6. I'm with you. I don't think I'll ever be tempted to make my bras even though my size is hard to find.

  7. I have no interest in making myself crazy trying to get a good fitting bra out of my sewing machine. I just don't want to go there!

  8. OMG to make someone ELSE a bra? ooph. No.
    Though cutting apart one of her favorite old ones and using it as a template is a tempting idea.
    Tempting, but still no. :)

    1. Yep, she reads the blog. She had me there for a moment (thus the crickets) before I realized she was kidding. She probably reads yours too - she's a lurker. We had a really good laugh!

    1. After my initial shock I realized that she was just kidding - then we had a really laugh about it. At first I thought she was serious.
