.. I feel that, since I've had a mastectomy and am in chemo, I don't have to buy anything with a pink ribbon on it.
Y'all are buying that stuff for me -- and I really appreciate the thought.
I also think that there has been an explosion of pink ribbons, and that it seems to be a bit of a marketing ploy.
Really, I don't care if y'all are buying them because you don't want to jinx yourself -- or because you want to feel sorry for me -- or because you want to feel special or that you are helping... whatever the reason, if it keeps others from getting or dying of breast cancer (hell, especially if it keeps ME from dying of it) -- go ahead..
I just think that actually having it excuses me from the pink ribbon marketing campaign.
