Congrats to Muthering Heights! The $20.00 Starbucks gift card is all yours. Email me and I will happily mail it to you :)

On a side note, if I wasn't trying to be fair and randomly draw a name, I probably would have sent a gift card to India for AJ. Who doesn't love a corporate sellout wanna be heavy metal head banger. I'm just sayin!

And now for today's post!

I work at a gym for women. I like my work. I like my co-workers, the members, and helping others work towards a healthier lifestyle. I also like a lot of the products we sell.

Of the many "work" shirts I wear, there is one that's kinda fun and a little naughty. It's black and has the word Curvaliciouswritten on it. It's written in a curvy, rainbow font. That's Curvalicious. Yes, that's what I said. 

For obvious reasons, I do not wear this shirt anywhere but the gym. I suppose that makes me kinda boring or prudish or not so sure I'm worthy of being called Curvalicious

I think I just like saying that word....Curvalicious....

Yesterday all that changed because I ran errands before going to work and I forgot I was wearing my Curvalicious shirt. 

I stopped in at Starbucks for a gift card and a tall, iced, non-fat mocha no whip (170 calories in case you're wondering). The boy barista, and yes, I do mean CHILD, looked at me, grinned and said, "I like your shirt."

I laughed thinking, sure you do punk, now get my coffee and no body gets hurt. I told him it was a work shirt and handed him my debit card. 

He smiled, took my card and said - without even blinking(!), "It's kinda hot..."


Now let's take a good long look at this situation shall we? I'm 42-years-old and the mother of a 20-year-old and a 17-year-old. My upper lip is disappearing. I have a muffin top. I wear support hose for crying out loud!

So, I looked him in the eye and said, "I'm old enough to be your mother!"

And he said...

Wait for it...

"That's kinda hot too!"


I admit to you that I blushed to the tips of my toes, laughed like an idiot, and told him to behave himself.

I am so a card carrying member of the Idiot Girl Club. 

He handed me my coffee, looked me in the eye and said in a very sultry, sexy voice, "Have a nice day...."

I accepted my coffee, told him not to talk to women my age that way, and laughed all the way to the car. 

So yeah, yesterday was a Curvalicious day.

I would have loved to see the look on your face when this young whelp had the audacity to say such things to you! :)

Sounds like you handled it with grace though! :)
