Waiting for a SONA 2007 broadcast (why yes, I was in pursuit of an arbitrary broadcast) I happened upon a talk segment about a breast enhancement (huh?) product on Winner TV on RPN. I don't really want to imagine what made me stop there for a bit longer than I did the other channels; maybe I was trying to be observant, maybe I wanted to "laugh bitterly" and "despair", maybe I wanted my breasts enhanced. Or you know, because the broadcast could come on at any minute.
The segment featured three women. I think two of them were hosts and the third one was either there to give her testimony or to serve as one. At the time I came upon it, one of the hosts was sharing a story about a friend who nearly died after getting silicone implants. The other two women hummed after this, and I like to think there was a brief moment of silence before the other host asked "Why do we even have to have bigger breasts anyway?"
Again, I think there was a bit of silence after this, then one of them replied "Aesthetics." She went on to elaborate, saying that people say though you might have a pretty face, if you have "an A-cup, you know, for your breasts" then you aren't as pretty. The other one, the one with the friend with the implants of doom, said "Well, some men like women with big breasts." then she made a cupping gesture in the air close to her breasts. Then the weird question got out of the way at which point I think they were going to show the bottle to the camera. Or something.
I guess I just felt like sharing it because I got upset.
Between the fifth movie (which I did not dislike as much as I imagined I would) and book seven, I'm feeling sentimental about Harry Potter. Even after being detached from the world of HP in general after a year or so.
