A Creative Sentencing Suggestion

So this woman, Londie Bowman, stole someone's identity to pay for a $20,000 "Mommy Makeover." What's a "Mommy Makeover" you wonder? It's a breast lift, a tummy tuck and liposuction. Yeah, she bought plastic surgery.


She was sentenced to nine months in the county jail. The article in the Marin IJ doesn't say if she also has to repay the money. Her lawyer was "shocked" that her client, the vain identity thief, got such a long sentence for a non-violent crime. That makes me laugh.


I've got a better solution. Let's be creative. Let's take some fat from a volunteer, and put it back in that tummy and the other areas from which it was sucked out of her. And let's droop those boobs again.


Any volunteers out there to offer up some belly fat?


And can I just add a personal diatribe against any plastic surgeon who promotes "Mommy Makeovers"? I'm not thrilled that I'd be a candidate for such surgery. Really, does anyone like drooping breasts? I mean, aside from young boys reading National Geographic?


I'm getting older. I accept that. I'm pretty much okay with that. I don't need another chorus clamoring that my body is something that I should be ashamed of. Or, in essence, that I should be ashamed of myself. And I sure as shit don't need my daughter hearing it.

Oh, sorry..wrong post. Yeah, I'll volunteer to donate my belly fat. Exercise doesn't seem to be working anyway.

Amen! Women need to learn to love their bodies - society sure doesn't help. I'm all for your idea! Let's stick all the fat back on her!

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
