Lament for My Squeaky Bra

10 Sep


Sing to me, O Muse, the cause of
a squeaky bra on the day I
presented my pimped-out PowerPoint
of which I was once so proud.

Not pearls, heels nor shaky laser pen
could take the attention from
these blushing cheeks
as each step bore the betrayal of creak

and squeak.

O, bra most exquisite!
What awkwardness thou hast provided
whilst supporting my superior bosom.

Continue not this costly crime against me,
for our intimate time
together has been not long

and I do not know if you can be fixed with WD-40.

    Nice lament, AND nice bra! Did you discover what caused it to squeak like that?


    • La La at 3:11 pm #

      Why thank you. I don’t know why is squeaks, nor do I know how to fix it. I guess I should google it!

    Maybe The Girls were feeling neglected, what with all the work you were doing on the Power Point presentation, and they wanted to be noticed.

    I bet they were so proud. πŸ˜‰

      Haha, they’re so demanding, yeesh!


      • JWo at 3:14 pm #

        I know, right?

        Be glad that all they were doing was squeaking and weren’t trying to β€œpeek” through to see what you were doing. hahaha…

          Silly boobs, tricks are for kids.

    wd-40 worked on my squeaky undies πŸ˜‰


    • La La at 3:22 pm #

      Oh perfect! I’ll try it when I get home.

      And no, I am not going to ask why you had squeaky manties.


      • Kyle at 3:28 pm #

        good, because i couldn’t ever say why πŸ˜‰

    Only you, La La. This could only happen to you…


    • La La at 3:39 pm #

      No. Surely I am not the only woman in the world who has had a squeaky bra.


      • Carrie Rubin at 3:47 pm #

        The only protesting noises my bras make are from wanting more fleshy sustenance…


    • Sword-chinned bitch at 5:24 pm #

      πŸ™‚ Cute! In a way it’s good these happen to La La because we get these really funny posts!


      • Carrie Rubin at 5:29 pm #

        I agree. That’s why my one word for her was ‘exciting.’ I live vicariously through her. And through her bras.

    I have definitely had a squeaky bra – but not during a PowerPoint presentation. It’s funny, but I feel for you, because it’s not a little sound. πŸ™‚


    • La La at 9:29 pm #

      Haha glad I’m not alone!

    I happen to run a bra fixing service. Which I can perform on or off the rack.


    • La La at 4:06 pm #

      How convenient! What do you use, a special serum or something?


      • Christopher De Voss at 5:32 pm #

        A formula I make myself.


  7. aparnauteur at 4:36 pm #

    Haha! I dislike clothing giving off any kind of sound . They take away from the effort you put in getting dressed. Also, it’s like you’re the belled cat. Nothing you do is a secret.
    Nice bra BTW!


    • La La at 9:28 pm #

      Right? And I like doing everything in top secret!

    O Thou leopard print
    On the prowl no shame you know
    Silent? alas not.

    Go bra-less is my recommendation. Might not help you when doing presentations though. Then again, maybe…


    • La La at 7:41 am #

      Ken, I sincerely hope you thought that aloud!


      • kenthinksaloud at 12:58 pm #

        That’s how I do most of my thinking La La πŸ˜‰

        . Designers are only a part of their own consumer base. Trying to force your disegn ideas on others, just because you think it is what they Should want is setting oneself up to fail. I understand that they thought that these new consumers would join the normal middle class, but the disegners did not take into account the social-economic situation that brought the new influx. Perhaps more is better is not the most accurate title. Perhaps it should be: More of the Same is Better. Though they now had increased buying power, their views on what wealth and luxury were were influenced by their upbringings. They like detailed and intricate. Designers thought they would be interested in simple and elegant. When proven wrong they refused to change.Perhaps it is not right to bring Apple into the discussion, but as a group that HAS influenced trends, they also do a terrible job of looking out for their consumers. People want adobe flash capability. Apple says NO! just because its not their product and it reduces battery life. People want what people want, even if we think that it might not be the best thing. Companies like Google then take advantage. This is paralleled with companies like Frigidaire in this story. The question I ask is: when do we truly know better and when should we just let the consumer have their way?

    “superior bosom” fab.

    This is a Jane Austen piece right?


    • La La at 10:41 am #

      Did Bob Craig read it to you on day one in London? I recall when he finished he looked up, smiled and said, “Jane Austen, a critic of society and such a classy, modern woman for her time.”

    Haha, that made my day… never had a squeaky one… perhaps you could record that for future generations?


  13. junelikethemonth at 1:24 am #

    Lol, that is too funny…I was just wearing my squeaky bra today…


  14. Kourtney Heintz at 10:19 am #

    A classic in the making. I wonder what caused the squeaking. I’ve had that with shoes but not yet with a bra. Horror of horrors. πŸ™‚


  15. mikeakin1 at 5:01 pm #

    That was GREAT lol

    See this is proof women are funnier than men (see your other post thing on this) because ‘The squeaky jock strap’ just wouldn’t be funny.


    • La La at 5:50 pm #

      Haha, I think that means boys are just gross. Cooties and stuff. You know how it is.
