If you are a woman over 30, which I am just barely (sha!), you probably own a pair of Spanx or some other kind of “Body Shaper.” Smooths out your curves, or your fawhumpawhumps, as I lovingly call them. Sometimes my curves misplace themselves and if I wrangle myself into throw on a pair of Spanxs my ghetto booty is lookin just right.
Yes, I said ghetto booty. There is even a group on Facebook I recently joined thanks Jennyonthespot, that is dedicated to the white girls with ghetto booties. Fa Reals. If you’ve seen me, you know I have one. It is a blessing and a curse, depending on my mood (cha cha cha!).
BUTT….back to the Spanxs. Besides being the curvy gal that I am, I am also wife and mother. One day my son decides to dress up as a ninja, cuz like, he’s a little boy, and he’s part Asian..so I figure its gotta be genetic somehow. He’s put a pair of his sister’s tights on his head and has mummified his face with the legs. But the tights were TIGHT, right? His already Asian eyes were stretched to slits…. he looked uncomfortable. So, using his creative idea, I grabbed my Spanx and but them on his head and tucked them around his cute little face. Much better, and wicked cute. See:
I know.. he is adorable and you can only see his eyes.
Last night we had Gourmet Dinner Club, and the theme was Rockband Party. We made our delicious dishes, and all arrived in costume, from glam rocker to gangsta rapper. Mark, my hubby, is not one for dressing up in costumes, unlike his wife who plots a different persona each day, party or no party! I insisted he play along. His options were Twisted Sister (I borrowed a wig) or gangsta rapper. He refused to wear make-up, so, I looked up some pictures of Snoop Dog, and Ludacris, and quickly pieced together his outfit. The topper… my Spanx in a doo-rag. Total success, don’t you agree?
Fo Shizzle, right? Yep… he even had a fake tattoo. I told him he pretty much needs to get one, for me at least. I think they are hawt. He’s not into it, much like the not wearing cologne, but a girl’s gotta keep trying right?
What other fine uses have you used for your Spanx, ladies?
