Some days the issues and questions folks seek solutions to and ponder the answers for seem so elementary to me that it causes me to question whether I am brilliant or a simpleton. I would like to assume it is brilliance when the answer to the matter at hand seems so clear to me, but it does occur to me at times that I may be too dense to even understand the content and depth of the question. I would however like to know which one it is…am I brilliant or am I a simpleton?
Case in point, an email from Women’s Health today that stated in the subject line, “Banish ‘bra fat’ with one easy move!” Of course I knew the move without even opening the email – unhook your bra silly – and there you have it – no more bra fat. Brilliance right? I opened the email just to confirm my brilliance (which is what I believe truly brilliant people do – trust in their intelligence, but verify nonetheless) and I discovered that I wasn’t as brilliant as I believed.
The email was about yoga – a.k.a. exercise…so the one easy move according to Women’s Health is not unhooking the bra, but instead a move designed to get rid of back fat (which for non-bra wearers is the reason for “bra fat” to begin with). I think they could have said back fat to be more clear, but that is really neither here nor there as it relates to my query.
So I am back to the question of whether I am brilliant or a simpleton? Ultimately, I think my solution was infinitely easier than what Women’s Health proposed (which, by the way, you had to buy a book to learn about anyway – I am still not clear on exactly what that one move is they propose). Let’s face it, all women know how to unhook a bra in a manner of seconds (indeed, many men can do it even quicker than that)…is that not the fastest, easiest way to banish “bra fat”? So I am still brilliant right???
Yeah…and it goes to follow that I am bra-less as well…not sure how much brilliance there is in that. 😉
