Mennonite Meets Mr. Right: A Memoir of Faith, Hope, and Love by Rhoda Janzen

"Also, wasn't a padded panty significantly sadder than a padded bra? A padded panty seemed desperate and needy, whereas a padded bra was an expression of reasonable hyperbole, as when an acquaintance says, "How are you?" and you say, "Fantastic!"

Ms. Janzen is funny and really has a way with words. But this scene is inspired by her finding out she had breast cancer and worrying about losing her breasts, and then thinking about how she once wore a padded panty due to her super-flat butt and now she'll have to wear a fake breast.

Padded panties? That's a new one for me. This week my teasers come from The Quick by Lauren Owen and Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore. I go from Victorian Vampires to futuristic zombies. Happy reading!

It's a really sad circumstance but a very funny teaser. I didn't even know that there was such a thing as padded panties! Thanks for sharing :)
