Me: I know that they say that they see so many breasts that it no longer seems like a big deal, but I think I would get so caught up in the whole thing. Because they’re breasts.
W: You’re probably right. You shouldn’t be a mammogram tech.
It’s always good to know our limitations. Mine involves working directly with breasts.
A friend texted me last night and mentioned something about a gynecologist appointment. Which got me thinking about breasts again. (This happens frequently.)
We started texting back and forth.
At one point, I advised her to take shallow breaths but typed, “Take shallow breasts.”
I had been telling myself NOT to write breast when the subject of the gynecologist had been introduced. Don’t say breast, don’t say breast, don’t say breast, I told myself. Because I know me pretty damn well.
“Talk about Freudian,” I texted back.

Anyone have a Freudian slip they’d like to share?
