Marie sat nervously in the corner of Dr. Nora Adams office wishing for the life of her that she was any place but there. Momentarily lost in thought, she jumped a little when the doctor’s nurse burst into the room and said, “You must be Marie, I’m Kathy, and I’m Dr. Adams nurse, so, what can we do for you today, Marie?”
Marie was a little taken aback at Kathy’s enthusiasm, but after finally regaining her bearings she replied softly, “Well, uh, it’s a female problem.”
“I see,” the nurse replied while getting out her pen to make notes on Marie’s chart, “and what exactly are your symptoms?”
Taste of Buns of Steel
Buns of Steel
by Marie LeClare
After graduating from journalism school I had been hired as a stringer for the Sun newspaper group, and waited for that big story that was going to make me famous. So when my editor called me in and said I was going to go to the Channel Islands to cover the Worldwide Buns of Steel contest for women I was elated.
She went on to explain that it was a contest for muscular women from all over the world and it was being held in the Channel Islands, which from my limited history was the closest the Germans ever got to England in the Second World War.
So after my flight to Poole, England I took the 3 hour ferry ride to the Island of Jersey, checked into the hotel and went to the site for the contest.
It was being held in this huge tent outside of the German hospital historical site as a way to raise funds, but outside of the tent was all sorts of trucks with cables strung all over from various television stations.
Peeking my head inside I saw the girls rehearsing where to stand and pose for the contest, so I went in trying to get an exclusive interview. Wandering around backstage I couldn’t take my eyes off these beautiful women.
