    I just endured a Seminary first lady's exulting over a certain year 2000 contrivance.
    She apparently considers it some sort of 'rescue' or 'miracle'. Enough already!
    Can anyone guess what she holds so dear?

    Nope. The Baptist seminary president's wife 'shared' with Baptist Press that:

    "I never leave home without my Spanx!"

    "In the year 2000, Sara Blakely's new invention called Spanx rescued discouraged women worldwide!"

    "I quickly became a believer, buying every variation of this modern-day shapewear."

    "I can walk in confidence that any bulges have been smoothed out. I don't exactly know where my extra fluff goes when I shimmy into my Spanx, but at least it is out of sight and out of mind for a while."

    "Spanx helps give its wearer personal confidence with a slim and shapely appearance. That confidence is fleeting, but hope in God lasts forever. So, be hopeful in God's grace, give Him the glory, and gird up your spiritual Spanx!"

    I am presently reading this thread while drinking my Rose Hip tea. Perfect time for that mental image. "Ugh".

    Thanks for that.

    That is an interesting candidness. I am curious as to what question prompted the answer? "I wonder first lady have you been losing weight you look marvelous? No not at all I actually added to two pounds during the holidays but I found this wonderful Spanx which allows me to deceive myself while in public. hehehe"
