The zipper, a tool for inspiration?

I have another story to share with you about the zipper.

My scar is still very pink and welted, I guess. Although most of the time I even forget is there, some one always remains me. Any way, this was a neat experience:
Last week during a visit to the hospital, I notice an older couple ( probably around my age, but they looked older) seating across from me. They were busy doing their own…

Stress test and ultrasound of both stents today at the cardiologist. Stress test revealed that blood pressure is well configured.

The zipper, curiosity? disgust?

I would like to share with ever body an experience from last Saturday night.

A bridal shower was held for one of my cousins who is getting married in June. Of course, I attended. The guess were all women, and most of them were my relatives.
I was wearing a nice dress with a low cut neckline. As we know, especially the women, unless we wear a turtle neck our scars are…
