I was in an uncomfortable situation yesterday.
The back story:
A little over a month ago, my blood thinner was changed from Plavix to Xarelto, and I've also and always will be on the 81mg asprin routine. 2 weeks later, I went to pee one night and my urine was unmistakably colored dark red--blood. A first for me in my lifetime and it was a shock. Called my cardio doc and she told me to immediately stop the xarelto and be in her office the next morning for blood work and submit a urine sample. Long story short, she referred me to a urologist to see if something's going on with kidney or bladder as Xarelto itself doesn't cause bleeding. Hard to get a doc appointment quickly so it took until yesterday to see a urologist. Went in he did the usual workup and questions and his nurse took some more blood, then told me to go to the checkout so the office girl could set up a referral for a catscan.

She's a comparatively young woman behind a counter, sitting at her computer, looking for ph# and fax# for my cardiologists, and looking up at me asking me questions. I'm 6'4". She's about 32" in front of me, and she's down at office chair level, and has this kinda lowcut blouse on that's showing way more cleavage than I was comfortable looking at. It was impossible, to talk directly down to her without seeing it--Cleavage. This is NOT her, but a pic off the web of a lady that is a little older but that is pretty representative of what she was wearing and showing, except I was looking down at her from above, and the girl yesterday was showing a bit more than this one. It made me both self conscious and more than a little uncomfortable considering all that has been in the news lately.

Told my wife about it, and she just said "Just look her in the eyes when you talk to her."
Me: "Field of vision isn't tunnel vision--the farther the distance the more is seen--impossible NOT to see it."
I guess I'm just going to be nice.

I figure the purpose for wearing those low cut tops is to make it easier for you to see them....just don't say anything.

Laughing. Hehehe Ha! There is no such thing as too much cleavage. It falls in the same category as too much Ammo! And I always look and always will. Having said that, it has caused a couple of my more memorable and more regrettable life experiences.

I don't remember who it was now, but one of the old now deceased comedians always referred to it as "my old friend Cleavage"

An old friend of mine, he is 80 now, was a kind of a shadetree philosopher. And yes, he was a womanizer. He said this:

An unmarried woman who shows too much cleavage is trying to look good.

A married woman who shows too much cleavage is saying "I need some spice in my life."
