“For the Girls”
Putting on a bra is not an option
when getting dressed to actually start the day.
Not doing so will trash a plan’s adoption
and leave one’s girls so aimlessly to sway!
To lift and separate provides a mental
alertness, as my mother often said.
Avoiding sagging thoughts is elemental
and will keep progress pointing straight ahead.
‘t is tempting not to fasten hooks and eyes
when lounging in one’s robe seems more ideal.
But thwarting gravity always relies
on good support. Ma nature keeps it real.
I’m all for hanging loose but let’s be clear –
if thou means business, put on thy brassiere!
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
