So, I'm taking refuge in oddity.
It came out over dinner that my grandmother, good Catholic that she was, used to keep saint medals and pardon crosses safety-pinned to her bra. My stepfather's mother apparently used to do the same thing.
The brain boggles. What saint do you wear 'pon your bra? Who is the patron saint of cleavage? (Grandma apparently favored Saint Anthony as guardian of the boobage.)
Somehow I had never heard of this tradition, but the way things are going, I may damn well buy Saint Jude and give 'im a try...
Update: Further family discussion has lead to the question "Is there a patron saint of getting laid?" (Yes, I have an interesting family.) I thought hey, if anybody'd know, it's the readers, and so I put it to you...what saint medal should adorn my cleavage?
