Does That Bathing Suit Come With Gloves?

We spent the day at one of our family's favorite places...Blue Springs. It's a place we try to go to at least once or twice a summer and we finally made it there today. We had a wonderful time, some of our family came up from down state and we swam and ate and laughed most of the day. But I kept seeing something over and over again during the day that for the life of me I can't figure out...

Women of a certain age and body type,
walking around in two piece bathing suits.

Now being a gal with MORE that a full figure, when I go out into the world and there's a chance of being in any type of body of water, I tend to look like a woman straight out of 1922...practically covered from stem to sternum. Take today for example...I wore a one piece but I was completely covered by one of Mark's t-shirts, (one that was marked with a T, for tall he's 6'4, so his t-shirts usually land right above my knees). And even then I felt a little too exposed...if I could have thrown a pair of pants into the mix I would have...

So when I see women, who look like me, walking around in their itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeney, yellow polka-dotted biknis, I have to wonder...

Have they never watched "Steel Magnolias"?
Did they not heed the sage words of Dolly Parton...?

"these thighs haven't gone out of the house without lycra on them since I was 14!"

No truer words have been ever spoken by an actress...

Deb ...you are always an absolute hoot! No one can make you laugh like you and Shanna can, especially on such a topic as this....I always wonder the same....I think you heard my tale of going to a Pinky celebration and while all of my compact and petite relatives were sporting the newest fashion in bathing suits, I donned my first ever skirt swimsuit from Walmart, I actually thought I looked pretty decent in it, but descent as I was....,my older sisters and my nieces burst in to laughter when I immerged from the living room. I banned myself from all swimming activities with the Pinkies after that time.....

Perhaps they all have "fun house" mirrors instead of the real thing!! LOL
