SQUEEZE!

Last night after dinner, Adam and Malia watched Taboo on the National Geographic Channel. The episode, Bizarre Bodies, was all about people who do different things to or with their bodies - some where pretty grotesque in my book like tattooing the white of your eyeball (WTF?) or surgically attaching things like horns (why??). What caught our interest was a 71 year old woman named Cathie who has the world's smallest waist. It measures 15".

Yes, FIFTEEN INCHES.

That made me bust out the measuring tape.

My thigh is 20 inches...my freaking thigh is 5 inches bigger than this woman's waist.

My head is 22.5 inches....my HEAD is bigger than her waist! Ridiculous!

My 8 year old daughter's thigh is 13 inches (the same as Adam's bicep)...just 2 inches smaller than this woman's waist.

My 8 year old daughter's waist is 22 inches (we won't even go there with mine...I'll just say that it's double that lady, Cathie's, waist size and then some)...I just can't fathom a 15 inch waist!

15 inches...seriously? Yes, she wears a corset all.the.time. She even works out in it! I don't even like wearing control top pantyhose because it's too constricting. Hell, I only break out the Spanx on special occasions because it's so, um, snug. Wow...15 inches on purpose. That's just too much will-power for me.
