Memories are made of this

This evening I was watching would i lie to you and suddenly remembered what we used to do when I was at school aged 16 or so. We were emerging from the chrysalis of adolescence and budding into acne covered butterflies (st least I was).  Flexing our pectoral muscles we would chant

              “I must, I must, improve my bust!”

In my case it didn’t work.

Seagulls - soon to be improved by oncoplastic surgery.

There was a scene in Grease like this I remember too - the girls were having a sleepover and one of them was doing exactly those pectoral flexes with arms held together.

Comes a times in life, certainly for those of us on this forum, where it seems amusing and unimportant that we spent time worrying that we weren’t ‘perky’ enough.
