None Of The Above…


None Of The Above…
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee… Oh, to be like this again… :)))))


I want to get a boob job; cosmetic surgery on my face… you know… remove some wrinkles, tighten up the old chin.

I have most all my teeth… so, I don’t need any new chompers.  I think I’ll get laser surgery on my eyes, so… I don’t have to wear my big, old reading glasses.

I thought about having weight loss surgery… am still deciding on it.  I wouldn’t have to have loose skin removed… as mine is still elastic… almost as elastic as the elastic… in my panties.  Pop!

Weight loss surgery… I’ve thought about this one quite a bit.  I’ve read, paid attention to people who have undergone it.  Some of those people die in a year or so, afterwards.

I read enough to know that sometimes, some people can’t ever get the nutrition from their food, anymore.  They have to take vitamins, and such.

I read also, that you can eat… but, not drink at the same time.  You have to drink something thirty minutes later… the stomach can only hold so much, after that surgery.  Suppose I am very thirsty?  If I drink what I want… while I’m eating… would it, also… be … pop!

I’ve noticed that the people I’ve seen… afterwards… lose a lot of their healthy appearance.  Their faces look so tired, somehow… not as healthy as they once looked.  That bothered me… I don’t want to look any worse…

This is one thing I’ll keep on the back burner.  I’m ‘not dying to be thin’.  I’ve been thin… loved it… I loved dressing my body then… it was wonderful.  I had to starve to stay little… when I say ‘starve’… I mean, I literally starved myself for years.  I won’t do that again.

I like my clean, real fingernails.  I’ve resisted for years… getting all the fake, beautifully-colored nails.  You know how I dearly love colors!  I’ve been very tempted to get them…. the designs, colors keep luring me.

I’ve decided I won’t go get a boob job…. it would be like hauling two big melons around on my chest.  Not only that… I’m happy just being … me … so, I’m going to have to say… no ‘none of the above’ up there, for me.

The one thing I would like to do, is to lose some weight…. I just need to eat in moderation… it happens fast.  I won’t get one of those surgeries, after all.

Really… I’m afraid to… I think about people who have… and in a year or so, they died.  I know three people that did.  These are my fears, I don’t know about yours.  I can only speak for myself.

Yep… I think I’ll just stay myself…. and not do… ‘none of the above’.

  1. Hi Gloria! 🙂

    I’m on a diet as I write and I’m slowly losing weight, but it isn’t easy – too many treats on offer!!! 😛

    I can now walk without pain which is good, but I need to lose more, so I’m still on the calorie counted ready meals and feeling hungry most of the day! 😦

    It’s all the fault of my meds which constantly stimulate my appetite while slowing down my metabolism.

    EVERYONE I have know who has used them has ballooned, but it is a battle I hope to win! 🙂

    Love and huge squishy hugs!


  2. Hi sweetheart!!! 🙂

    Thanks for the visit and comment!!! 🙂

    I’m feeling better because help is on its way!!! 🙂

    Paul and Babs are going to visit on Saturday to help me with the form I have to fill in to reapply for my benefits.

    This is vital because if I mess it up I will be left without any support – anything the government can do to cheat its victims… 😦

    The new wash basin should go in Friday and I still have the shower and extractor fan to get done which depends on when the electrician is available as they are short staffed for such a massive number of homes!

    It could take up to a week to finish, but so far so good! 🙂

    I’ll be glad to say goodbye to the guys, but they were generally good sorts if a little rough round the edges!!! 🙂

    I’m more worried about Doug slipping in to try and get me to help him – he wasn’t about today so I had some peace! 🙂

    He’s going to be in trouble with the law sooner or later – he’s breaking the rules so I am trying not to get involved… 😦

    Still: So far so good and tomorrow is a shopping day so the sooner I get done the better!!! 🙂

    Give Skip my best – he’s a dude!!! 🙂

    Love and huge hugs!
