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 !
