An Imagined Conversation Between Myself and This Model


Me: Hey, could I talk to you for a second?

Model: No, I'm busy. Very busy.

Me: Really? What are you doing?

Model: I've gotta get to work. I'm late. Have you seen the NASDAQ numbers today? Dreadful! I'm late! I've really gotta go.

Me: You seem like you're pretty wound up.

Model: HAVE YOU SEEN THE NASDAQ NUMBERS?

Me: Well, no.

Model: If you saw them you'd be stressed out too. Trust me.

Me: I see that you're wearing a corset. That's kind of stressing me out.

Model: What? This? This is a Sir-set, not a corset. It's for men. It shapes and slims the torso.

Me: So it's a corset.

Model: Sir-set.

Me: Good god. You're wearing a corset. Just own it!

Model: I assure you I am not wearing a corset.

Me: Did your overbearing mother lace you into it this morning while forbidding you from seeing the man you love because he's poor and your father recently died, leaving you and your mom with nothing but bad debts hidden by a good name?

Model: Yes.

Me: Umm...wow.

Model: Alas, this Sir-set is a metaphor for the ever-suffocating cage that is my life.

Me: Corset. It's a corset, dude.


p.s. Thanks, Tricia!

It looks like a girdle to me but I may be wrong. Sir-set sounds a lot better :)

it looks like he blew out his back and the chiro gave him a brace but he got confused about the fact that it goes UNDER your clothes...

I find it comforting that I am not the only one that has these sort of imaginary conversations.

Beth said...

Nice boobs he gets from wearing that corset though. :-)

Amazing.

I'm trying to come up with any scenario where that would be practical and it's just not happening.

Robbing grandma's undies drawer? I know they're going on about the whole "underwear as outerwear" trend lately, but I don't think it was supposed to be stealing someone elses' old undies...ick!
Is our (female) version supposed to be ladies walking around with supportive cups over our pants?

Catherine said...

Interesting format that gender equality is taking these days...

lisa said...

It's like Titanic all over again except it's starring Nate Winslet this time.

Dao, I think you mean a "guy-dle."

:)

WendyB said...

Of course...after the bro/mansierre, one would need a sirset.

A-C said...

That is AWESOME!

Beth said...

You have to admit there is something naughty about all this in an anti-Annie Hall kind of way...just like all the guys on RuPaul's Drag Race.

Heidi Rose said...

Haha! I love these imagined conversation posts.

Elise said...

I love you for making that timeless Titanic reference.

Sal said...

Yeesh. He even tucked his tie into it.

Renée T. Bouchard said...

Sir-set, mirdle, mansierre, bro, they're all hilarious and should stay in Seinfeld episodes, away from the runway. This post was too funny!

Woah... was that a "Titanic" reference?! You blow my mind, girly!

ambika said...

Ok...I get the whole under garments as outer garments thing but this is taking it too far.

Not even the Nasdaq numbers are an excuse for this.

Helen said...

I think I'll be having nightmares about this tonight. No wonder he looks so angry!

Peldyn said...

Now, is he going to have a bodice-gasm when he takes it off? Those of you who have never had one, it is quite an experience. Exquisite pain-pleasure and relief to the point of ecstasy. Yeah, years of doing the renaissance fairs in those torture devices and I know of what I speak :)

Darla said...

Why in the heck is on the outside yet its tucked into his trousers? High fashion is confusing some times.


Love your wit!
