Say goodnight EthylRead Now
So this is Ethyl's guest blog - on the last night of her life here on my rib cage - she pointedly asked - ok it was cold - if she could have a moment to have a voice of her own. I have been speaking on her behalf and now that there will be only half - Myrtle is beside herself - quite literally and the therapy she is going need is - a blog all by herself. Sing that line. It helps.
Poor Ethyl- . She always thought she might get nipped or tucked -but she never thought her destiny was a Petrie dish.
Sorry I am the one being a tit. So not listening. Go ahead Ethyl. We are here for you. ( yes I just said TA TA for now in my head)
Tit for tat. It is her turn.
I was named in 1985 by the girls in OMEGA KAPPA new on Water St. Trent.
Picture 8 strangers. More beer than brains. Bonding by naming body parts. I chose ethyl after my fav broadway gal. That gal had pipes. I always wanted to be on stage. Now my destiny is just to be staged. Like a home. A haunted one. Sigh
Back to me. And my show.
I first appeared in stairs of my middle school when my host body ran down a flight with me flailing free sans bra. She was in training. I needed to be. .
My second appearance was at S&R. Where a strange woman stuffed me into a variety of beige comforters. I lived here for many years.
I was not seen again until a strange RKY Canoe trip that occurred entirety in the rain. Who knew I could wrinkle so. Who knew the sun was so hot. Ow.
My debut as a real boob - comforter free occurred at some giant musical festival in the woods. We had to shower outside. With others. 100's of others.
That's when I knew I was big deal. Myrtle was bigger. But I had a better profile.
I had one more moment in the sun - floating with my sister in a lake. This one has been captured by shore line onlookers.
My last moment was with a professional - a photo shoot that let Kelly -really feel my sadness. And my determination not to let her die.
We had some great times she and I - and one or two with a loved one.
But to know that I am now host - to peter Paul and scary Mary as she calls them - is not ok.
So I have to go. I have to go so the show can go on. After all I am just a body part. I do not make Kelly a woman. Or make her sexy. Her mind and soul does that.
Oh and her shoes. Serious. If could wear shoes !
So thanks for the mamories - sing that it helps.

Dear Kelly, Liza, Ethyl & Myrtle... I've loved reading the blogs! Your laughter, tears, internal thoughts & outspoken conversations put to paper (so to speak), has been very entertaining, eye opening & heart wrenching, all rolled into one. What I love more is actually talking to Kelly & Liza in person, sooo....Ethyl my dear...you've got to go! Bonsoir, adios, Buh-bye. Go on with yer bad self! And, thank you for taking your 3 squatters with you! Your services are no longer needed. And Myrtle? You're the centre of attention now! Well, technically left-of-centre....so you better watch out! Tow the line! Or I suspect, you'll be gone too. In the mean time Kelly & Liza....get some rest & relaxation & I look forward to seeing you in person where we can discuss "C" cups of a different kind -Cabernet & Cosmopolitans. My best friend Stella will probably show up too.
