Fill in the Blank

June 25, 2008

In the last week we've had six old friends come to visit, and each of them has asked the very same question: Amy, why is/are there _____________________ on your dining room wall?

Post your best guess in the comment section.

I have similar fixtures on the ceilings in my house! They once held chandeliers, apparently...But to us kids growing up, they had entirely different connotations. :)

Nipples. Why are they there? For chandeliers like maureen78 said?

My parents have a light above the stairway that looks like a breast. My dad always putting in a new light bulb because it's hard to reach. Random story, my favorite kind.

J~Mom said...

Those are your buzzers for when you play dinner gameshows!

Rob & Katy said...

clearly they're boobs. duh.

akshaye said...

perfectly symmetrical boobs

Bahston Beans said...

Ta-tas!

glitterangel said...

Boobies, but definitely silicone ones, real ones are certainly not that pert or symetrical!

Lisa said...

boobies. That's first thing I noticed before I even read anything. What are they really anyway?

Sue said...

Yip, nipples... So - what's the story?

Vanilla said...

Yay boobies!

BTW, posting boobies on your blog is a shameless ploy to increase your hits.

Charlotte said...

Boobs... That was a no brainer! All of the light fixtures in our apartment look like boobs hanging down. We decided that's why our baby was so content to lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling...

Lindsey said...

Well, they totally LOOK like boobs.. Albeit kind of far apart boobs. What are they anyway>???

Grandma said...

Does anyone ever notice the pretty photo on the wall?

Cheryl said...

Your mom is right. That is a beautiful picture on your wall. Why did you hang it between a pair of boobs? :-)

Jess said...

Nipple molds?

VerWaynia said...

Uh, it has to be nipples. Abnormally widely spaced nipples, but nipples nonetheless!

Sarah said...

Yeah I thought your post was going to be about some new framed picture you got and all I was thinking was, "Does she know she has boobs on her wall?" Is it because a bachelor lived their before? Is there a strippers pole in your bedroom too? C'mon, be honest!

Grandma said...

p.s....based on the responses,paint a bikini around those!

Maraiya said...

Your Grandma rocks! (paint a bikini-what a brilliant idea!) Yeah, so unoriginal, but all I could think of were breasts; breasts that have never breastfed. Did you know your house was a barren female? I, apparently, have a dirty mind. All those light fixtures that are round with pointed little brass tips - totally boobs. I've pointed this out to several friends who have the fixtures in their houses and have now corrupted many people. (I see phalli in odd places too, so I'm equal opportunity when it comes to genitalia.)

But, the real question, what are they really? I thought thermostats but upon gazing closer, nope. Are they to hang sconces from? To rub and ask questions - like built in magic 8 balls?

Still wondering.....

Maraiya said...

oops - I guess that would be your mom rocks! (sorry!)

diana said...

boobies!!!!

Grandma said...

no problem Maraiya...hey Amy here's another idea.. since they are so far apart..get another pair so each one can have its partner closer together, then paint 2 buxom clothed(of course) bodies around them(or maybe a cartoon figure like Jessica Rabbit...nice accent table in between..and you may make it on HGTV!!ok I have to finish packing now.

Heather said...

Both a dimmer and a regular light switch? Other than that I see nothing out of the ordinary in that photo ; - )

jkrunning said...

i was thinking breast shields from a pump. I guess that's not it though....

The Carrie Collection said...

Orbs of delight as I like to call them. I would accent them with pasties to be quite honest. At least make it decent for the children. Your son will most definitely have unrealistic expectations for women from here on out :)

Amy W said...

Hey - I love the picture. Some really wonderfully talented photographer who is married to a really groovy chick must have taken it.

Our Little World said...

i was gonna say smoke detectors! lol boobs? they are sol far apart!
