Like crocuses popping up after a long hard winter, Chicagoans look forward with great zeal to the end of a brutal winter blast. This past winter was like Barney’s interminable “Song that never ends”. No one was exempt! Not even these Cuties!When spring comes into bloom, so does my obsession.
So, what is my obsession? Spring Fashions? Women’s shoes? Hats? NOPE!
I LOVE BUTTS!!
We’ve been eagerly anticipating shedding some of the many layers we’ve been donning all winter. Some may shed more than what is deemed “fashionably correct”, but I applaud their Bravura. Maybe it’s a midwestern thing, but most people don’t seem to care what goes on “behind” the scenes. (Not until beach weather arrives, then it’s time to haul ass!) Perhaps we’re just so glad to feel the warmth of the sun on our faces that we aren’t thinking about our backsides.
The IT bands, if not broken down regularly, can REALLY MESS YOU UP. Don’t even get me started on the SEXY SARTORIAL muscle!! It’s the longest muscle in the body that wraps from your out hip to inner knee. These things play a critical role in your overall health.
I started looking at how people walk and how they engage their glutes. I became OBSESSED!!
Big ones, round ones, skinny ones, flabby ones, hard ones, soft ones, droopy ones, perky ones etc. Doesn’t matter. I appreciate them all because they tell a story.
I love the scene in Forrest Gump when Forrest Gump moons LBJ.
“Where were you wounded?” ( LBJ inquires, referring to a geographical location)
“In the buttocks, sir.” Forest replies
“I’d kind of like to see that”! Johnson replies.Forrest obliges.
Mary Lincoln is standing in front of a mirror in a hoop skirt checking herself out.
After sizing her up for sometime, he cannot tell a lie..
Mary storms off.
Finally, there’s “Working girl”.
“Get your bony ass out of my face!”
Threatens Melanie Griffith to Sigourney Weaver after Weaver’s character had stolen Melanie’s work.
As a female, having a big or shapely butt was tantamount to social suicide, creating “wallflowers”everywhere.
Then J lo came along and rocked that ass with great pride! That opened the floodgates for the rest of us. (Granted, no one comes close to Ms. Lopez!)
Things got even brighter when the hourglass Christina Hendricks first appeared on Mad Men. Not only did she reset the standard for beautiful women, she blew it up! I was blind to her impact until in the locker room some woman admonished me not to lose too much weight, because Madmen had men (who love voluptuous women) coming “out of the closet!”
Speaking of men, what’s their deal? Have we managed to chase them into the closet?
In truth, I happen to know this guy very well. He has a great tush. But you’d never know it by these jeans.
He gave me his blessing to use his pic with the caveat mention that I tell women to stop worrying about “thigh gap”!
He said it took thousands of years of evolution to acquire our distinctly feminine shapes and we should leave it alone!
The rings of a tree tell it’s story. The shape of your butt tells a similar story. You can get a pretty good idea as to age, diet and exercise. When I say “diet” , I’m not referring to ” calorie counters” necessarily.
I mean those who spend time celebrating with friends and/or family. Happy people who are not afraid to eat and enjoy life!
Have you taken a look lately?
Here are a few brave souls who popped up in 65 degree weather a couple weeks ago.
