A Dose of Plato Honesty

Conversation of the weekend:

I was getting changed Monday to go out to the movies. I changed from my PJ shirt into a rather form-fitting shirt that I always wear under something else or with a jacket over. I hadn't put my jacket on yet when Plato walked into the room.

Plato: Mom? That shirt makes you look reeeaaallly pretty.

Thanks, Plato; that's very sweet of you to say.

Plato: (thinks a bit ) .....Mom? Why do girls wear shirts that show some of their boob-skin?

(trying not to choke)....uhhh, well,....Plato, when girls' breasts start to grow, most shirts will show at least a little of their cleaveage. As long as it's not too much, it's okay...

Plato: Weeellll.....I think it looks very very pretty!

Thanks honey.

(a long pause as Plato is obviously mulling something else over that he wants to talk about)

Plato: Mom?

Yes, Plato?

Plato: .....um, you know what? I even like it when a girl's shirt shows some of her boob-crack. I think that is super-pretty!

(ACK!!) ...That's very nice of you, Plato, but I wouldn't go around telling strange girls that you like their boob-crack, ok?

Book crack isn't nearly as sexy a word as cleavage but the phrase did get me to thinking. If a mans shows butt cleavage it is said he has plumber's crack what should we call it when a woman is showing chest cleavage ... ?

Boob crack.

THat is hysterical! And what a cutie!

Boob crack! Too funny! At least he doesn't think showing the other crack is super pretty!

Travis: well, now ya got ME thinking....

How 'bout "Hoochie Humps?"

"Bongo Bumps?"

Grasping at straws here. Borrowing a bit from Fergie and her inspirational song about Lady Lumps (always great to hear your 5 year old singing that one...)

Thanks for visiting my blog.

EE is quite remarkable.

More of the story has come out. I posted in the comment section below your comment.

Great blog you have here!

Brilliant !

We have "Builders Bum crack" over here ( not me personally you understand!).

You know the big hairy butt men who will sit down or bend over with their baggy belted trousers and "Too small" underpants on show revealing a place to "park your bike!"

I just happened upon your blog, and this had me laughing outloud!

You are my new "must read"!


Mom In Scrubs said...

Doc says if he things boob crack is good, just wait until he sees his first whale tail.

It's a good thing you are keeping a record of all this. All these stories to embarrass Plato when he gets older.
