The Body Shaper ''Thing''

I met a Mr. Dreamy handsome guy on a dating site, and talking and texting him was a delight ! After a few weeks we decided it was time to meet, and without hesitated I said yes in a heartbeat ! I wanted to look sexy for him on our first date, so weight loss- I planned to accelerate ! To help in the illusion I purchased a body shaper it was black and stiff and fit my body like wrapping paper ! But, lets face it the shaper "thing" was really a girdle, and for sure I would not be jumping even a small hurdle ! So, the day arrived and I put on my pretty new dress, and the "thing" and I did look two sizes smaller was my guess ! He seemed quite dazzled by my beauty ... and shape, but I am thinking- from this "thing" is there any escape ! We went for a walk first and I was having trouble walking, with each breath taken- the shaper "thing" was blocking ! So, we get to a fancy Italian restaurant and sit down, but I excuse myself right away and start looking around; ! In the washroom I remove the "thing" that was me, oh, will he mind- I am two sizes bigger when set free ! _________________ July 22, 2021 Poetry/Couplet/The Body Shaper ''Thing'' Copyright Protected, ID 07-1374-904-22 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, An Interesting Couplet sponsor, Funom Makama, Judged 08/05/2021 Fifth Place

funny, Constance. Congrats on your win. I have worn those waist cincher things and they kind of work but are REALLY uncomfortable by the end of the day!
