2017 - Week 9: I Don't Understand "Butt People"

I have, for as long as I can remember, never understood the human fascination with butts.

"Oh, I'm a major butt man. I mean, look at those cheeks."

"She got dumps like a truck, truck, truck..."

"Oh, my god, Becky, look at her butt."


I assume my confusion is due in part to the fact that I grew up with a Colon & Rectal Surgeon as a father and saw many a diagram or x-ray of gastroenterology-related fun. Actually, perhaps that's where most of my confusion comes from. #ThanksDad

When you get down to it, though, why is the butt viewed as a sexual object? We defecate from there, and it is simply 2 slabs of fat designed to make sitting comfortable. Seriously. Imagine trying to sit without a butt. It would be awful.

And yet here we are, sexualizing that. WHY?
It makes no sense to me.

Granted, I have my own preferred body parts (I love a good, strong pair of shoulders and a well-defined forearm... don't ask. I can't explain it.), so I can't really throw any stones here. But this has always been something that has confused the everloving crap out of me (pun absolutely intended), and I have yet to receive an answer that I deem sensible.

So here I am, posing the question to all readers of this humble little blog:

Do you like butts? Can you lie about them?
If you do like them, why?
If you don't, what part of the body turns you on?

I'm so sincerely interested.

Peace.
Stef.

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
