I went to art school, and yes it was just like this movie. I have very fond memories of art school, one of them is meeting one of my now best friends. We took most of our classes together .Then she decided to go and get pregnant on me and I decided to change my emphasis to painting and drawing. We had a good time, made ridiculous art together and challenged each other to make really good art too. When she was pregnant with her son, I helped her with homework and even painted a few silly landscapes for her. Shhh don’t tell. Her class picked mine as the best in the critique though. 🙂
Anywho, enough rambling, so one semester she had a metal works course. I don’t remember what the exact assignment was, but she came up with the brilliant plan to make a nipple ring. No not a ring for your nipple, a ring for your finger with a nipple on it. Guess who got to be the nipple model? Yours truly. The conversation went something like this:
J: Do you have really cute perky boobs?
me: Umm I guess so
J: I need you to come over so that we can make a cast of your nipple
So I made myself as cold as possible, stuck my boob in a cup of alginate and voila! A cast of my nipple was made. My friend made it into a metal ring of some kind and it has sit happily on my dresser in a box for the last 5 1/2 years.
Wifey told me that she “found” it a couple of days ago. She of course has seen it before, it was more like she rediscovered it. Well last night we decided to compare the ring to my current boob and nipple state. It’s like when you see a kid everyday they don’t seem to be getting bigger, but if you don’t seem them for months it seems like they are growing like a weed. I am fully aware that I am growing and expanding is almost every direction (I’m already up 2 cup sizes) but that was really a shocker. I’d post comparison pictures so other folks could be amazed with me, but that might bring in the wrong crowd. I’ll just say that poor little ring looks so small now, when before it looked huge. Maybe I can get my friend to make a new one. I’ll wear the pre-pregnancy one and Wifey can wear the pregnancy one. I really can’t imagine my boobs or my nipples getting any bigger, someone please tell me it will stop at some point.
