Limited Too Tuesdays- On Boobs and Stuff

It's time for another edition of Limited Too Tuesdays, a post in which I look back through my old diaries to see what middle school me was up to.


Today's selected diary entries reflect the importance of boobs. Let me just preface this by saying I hated everyone with boobs. I loathed them in a way that was unnatural for a little girl from Nebraska to loath someone. Likewise I hated tight shirts, swimsuit parties, revealing Halloween costumes, or any other type gathering where someone with big boobs was allowed to show them off.

Again, names have been changed to protect the innocent. More specifically, a name has been changed to protect the poor girl whom I disliked simply because she was blessed with a large chest at a young age.  Basically if you had big boobs you were a slut to me, regardless of your behavior.

Meg wasn't acting slutty, you guys. If I remember correctly she let some twelve-year-old boy poke her in the tit on Halloween as a joke. Then some nasty little girl over exaggerated the situation and turned it into drama... All of my bad karma makes so much sense to me now. I think last time I checked "Meg" is currently living in India doing mission work building bridges for orphans and running marathons to save elephants or something.

And oh the days of missing a land line phone call from a boy because you weren't home (presumably I was at the YMCA.)  It's sad to me to think that the younger generation will never know this thrill. I am happy to see I realized at such a young age how "overrated" going out is.

Let's look at one more entry on the subject of boobies, what do you say? And yes, this is the same "Meg" as before, just six months later. So as you can imagine her boobs have gotten even bigger!

Did I make the word "ass" red to try to scribble it out, or really add emphasis? I'm not sure. I do know I signed "Tay #22" to really drive home the sport notion.

Be nice to each other today, you never know who is writing about you in their diary.

  1. Oh man, the stuff that seemed like the end of the world in jr high!!! I actually miss being flat chested (nursing is the only non surgical route for me and my C cup dreams) because my big boobs make me look heavier. Funny how it changes like that.

  5. You are brave for posting these, I cringed being reminded of my own experiences while reading those diary entries!

    And it's still a pain in the ass being flat after college graduation. Who thought strapless dresses were a good idea anyway?

  9. Haha this is so funny! What a cute idea to post about your old childhood memories and glimpse back at your diaries. I love reading back on mine too! Can't wait to keep following!

  10. Ha...you're dead on that having big boobs is a pain in the ass for "sports and stuff"...There is very little in life that I hate more than my ginormous boobs.. If I could qualify for an insurance-covered reduction, I'd be all over it right now, and I'm definitely doing it after I have kids. Boobs are the absolute worst thing ever.

  11. Ha! I love this idea. My journal is far too boring to post online. that Meg I tell ya she just gets all the oogles and aws!

  12. Hahaha this is hilarious. Boobs were a sore subject for me, too. Who am I kidding, they still are. Love these posts!

  13. I love peeking into your junior high mind every Tuesday, it makes me feel better about what a psycho I was at age 13. Also I love that you signed Tay #22. I was boy crazy and always signed with the last name of whatever guy I had a crush on that week. Sometimes when I liked more than one boy I would do a big long list of hyphenated last names. Normal.

  14. Oh my gosh. I die! I hated girls with boobs in my younger days too because I was so damn flat chested! Now I'm one of those girls! Sluts.... ;)

  18. I was the Meg in middle school. minus the letting boys touch my breast part. but for shiz. being a c cup in grade 7 is no walk in the park. ugh. middle school.

    i just really like your priorities though about boobs and sports. because that really was a struggle. so high five.

  19. UGH. I remember these days. How I waited and waited for my very own big boobs. Still waiting......

  21. this post is awesome! man, just thinking back to middle school or even high school when our worries were like so innocent and nothing compared to real world problems and just thinking about how when we were that age we wanted nothing more than to just be grown ups.. man how awesome would it be to be a kid again :p

  23. I just love the entire concept behind Limited Too Tuesdays. So. Damn. Much.

  24. This is too funny! You know, boobs really aren't all they were cracked up to be in middle school.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Limited Too Tuesdays are really starting to trump my Trashy TV Tuesdays... middle school drama is so much more relateable than Dance Moms.

  27. haha I love these limited too Tuesdays! I remember all my friends were getting boobs and I was so jealous! I begged my mom to get me a bra when all I really had was ribs with nipples. I was a late bloomer though, those girls still have the same size boobs they did in middle school, and mine are out of control!

  28. I was so flat in middle school and my best friend had boobs, and I was insanely jealous. I wore this one really tight top from Limited Too (I still remember it, maroon with navy stripes) all the time because it made me look like I had SOMETHING. When my sixth grade boyfriend broke up with me, he called me a flat chested bitch. I still remember that 17 years later hahaha.

    My first bra was a 28AA that I begged my mom to get me because I realized during middle school gym that most of the other girls had bras.

  29. It seems, though, that you were athletic and flat-stomached....doesn't that count for anything???! You can always pad boobs :)

    I remember using the word "pry" all the time in middle school. Something I've forgotten about over the years...

  30. I wish I had kept a diary in high school but back then I couldn't see the point, and now I do, reading about what your school days were like make me a little more sad that I didn't write how my school life was like

    ReplyDelete
  31. I LOVE these posts! They remind me of my friends and I growing up-only I had big boobs that I would tape with duck tape so I looked flat(er) like Roberta from the movie Now and Then! ha!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh man... waiting for a guy to call on a landline was the WORST! Especially before call waiting and caller ID! OH THE HUMANI-TAY! (hardy har har)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Really though, I was the same way when it came to girls with big boobs.. I hated them. I just wanted big boobs too! Ha ha! I never did really did get boobs, got the short end of that stick ha ha.

  34. I just wanna say I really love this series; I think every kid should keep a diary to laugh at as an adult. I also love that you use the word "pry" for probably. I've never heard anyone except myself or family members say that :)

  35. this is sooo dang funny! hahah oh junior high!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my word this is the best one yet...hahaha! Loving these!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my god these posts are just too hilarious! Isn't it awful that everything you said back then, I still think now? Does that make me a bad person?? I'm going to say no, because unfortunately I was on the flat side of things and needed something to bitch about! :)

  38. As a former member of the IBTC, I feel your pain and despised girls with big boobs. Also, sometimes I seriously worry about where my former diaries are. Did I throw them out? Are they still "hidden" at my parents house? Did they find them and read them before bed each night?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Haha you were the most logical jr high-er ever! Love this!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is great! I can't believe the things we thought were so dang important back in the day. I'll have to search for my old journals for a good laugh with the boyfriend this weekend.

  41. I want to go back to being 12 and being friends with your 12 year old self. She seems pretty awesome. Not that I wouldn't want to be friends with your current self. And my nickname was "newby(my last name) no boobie" when I was little so there's that.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I was definitely not blessed in the chestal region when I was younger. In fact, I remember my MOM helping me stuff! She would sew little paddings in my AA bras so it would look like I had SOMETHING. That's a good mom right there. Oh and I was totally with you on the whole "All girls with big boobs are sluts" thing...mostly cuz it was true.

    Itty Bitty Titty Committee fo' LIFE!

  43. So I'm just getting around to reading this and let me just tell you, we would have been best friends then. We were playing Taboo or one of those games where you have to get the people to guess what you're trying to say without saying the word and someone decided to use the clue "This is what Sam is!" and the word? "FLAT!" yelled another boy. Traumatizing.

    Now I have boobs bigger than my head and I wish I was still a member of the itty bitty titty committee..
