We all remember Schoolhouse Rock’s musical tribute to the mysterious allure of the number 3. According to the lyrics to 3 is Magic Number, the number’s mystique can be traced all the way back to the Holy Trinity.
Three is a magic number.
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three as a magic number.
I, myself was influenced by its power at a very young age, donning the number 3 on every jersey for every sport I ever played. I refused to play with any other number. For me, it was only 3…which is why I suppose, I have a keen understanding insight into the heart and mind of a woman who goes by the name of Jasmine Tridevil. A massage therapist with aspirations of becoming a Reality TV star, Tridevil is no dummy. She understands 3. “Understands” might not be giving her enough credit…..she gets 3.
Tridevil gets that harnessing the power of 3 is a priceless undertaking which is why she had no issue spending $20,000 for the surgical addition of a 3rd breast. But finding a doctor whose code of ethics would be trumped by his or her appreciation for the number 3 would prove to be a challenging proposition for Tridevil, who told Real Radio 104.1 that she had to call 50 doctors before finding one, who would give her 3.
But eventually she found her man who constructed the additional breast with a silicone implant using skin tissue from her abdomen. But all good men can fall short: the doctor was unable to replicate an areola so Tridevil was forced to take matters into her own hands…she had one tattooed on her new friend.
Her chest is now home to three breasts and her heart is now home to a dream that just might be a little closer: an MTV reality show.
But MTV show or no MTV show, there’s another upside to her new addition and it has nothing to do with stardom and everything to do with heartbreak. Tridevil said “I got it to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore.”
One thing’s for sure, she clearly doesn’t understand men.
