I was beaming by the This be me drinkin shirt st. patrick’s t’s and crews in other words I will buy this time we walked out of Teen Haven, did a little victory dance in my bra on the way to the car. Wouldn’t you like to hear that my mother came around, experienced at least a wave of maternal joy or sadness that her youngest had crossed a rite of passage? Sorry; that won’t happen here. On the way home I displayed the grin of the victor, while secretly twitching with the restraints of the vanquished. My mother simply fumed.

She looked at me in my thin pink t-shirt, and said “I think you should start wearing a bra.” I was mortified for the rest of the day. Or week. Probably month. I asked my mum to get me a bra, and she said I had no use for one yet, and refused. Meanwhile Cecilie’s mum got her bras and she (Cecilie, not the mum) taught us all how to put it on. Several of the girls in class commented on my breasts, which wasn’t surprising, cause from the moment they started growing, they grew a cup size every fourth month for almost two years. Anyway, my mum got me a bra for Christmas, an A cup. It was black with pink trimmings, and a silver Snoopy. I tried it on and it was way too small. I told my mum, who was puzzled, but helped me get one the right size. Pretty sure I said …
