Dear Diary,

We are getting a little worried about Mama L.

Everytime she comes home from visiting Amy Lee, she has these gigantic purple bruises. We try to ignore them, but it’s really hard to miss. They’re humongous! And the weird thing is that they’re perfectly round! Mama said that it’s because Amy uses these cups and it’s normal traditional eastern medicinal practice and that lots of people do it to suck out the bad stuff and maintain their “chi”, whatever that is.

Well.  We used to believe her.  Until we saw those pictures tonight.

She said that Pilates is normal too. And good for you.

Should we be worried?
