"De woman got no bum!"

Thursday, September 06, 2007

I have lost my tush. I have lost 40 lbs, and my tush went with them. Yes, I have returned to the barely-there white woman tush that I used to have.

I lived in Liberia, West Africa, and would often hear "De woman got no bum!" I currently live in the West Indies (on the island of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands) and again, often hear "De woman got no bum!"

And then I blew out my knee in Hurricane Lenny, was in a brace for four months, had two surgeries in 2 years, and put on 40 lbs. Mostly in my hips and belly and tush.

It was a nice tush. Round and firm and shapely. Like a peach. DH loved that tush. I kind of liked it. It filled out pants and dresses, and looked nice. Unfortunately, the tush matched the belly and hips, so I looked like a pear from all angles. But the tush itself was nice.

Now it's gone. And with it, all its friends, those extra fertile hips and the perpetually pregnant looking tummy. Gone.

I don't miss the hips, I kind of like the athletic looking shape I see forming, with broad shoulders and slimmer hips. I remember that shape. I don't miss the tummy, I like having the front looking flatter and flatter.

But I don't like the flat tush. I miss my tush. I mourn the loss of my peach-shaped tush.

"De woman got no bum" is back.

    Wear your butt with pride. Butts come in and out of fashion. Used to be everyone wanted the smallest one they could get!

You never know what the new trend will be. :)
