After a good morning of shopping for healthy foods at the grocery store, I came home all primed to lock into an afternoon of ironing as per my schedule today.
I should be setting up the ironing board at this very moment, but what am I doing instead? I am writing this short blog entry to fill the next 10 minutes of time before I leave to go shopping again....for a bathing suit! A BATHING SUIT FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!
It has been 27 years since I last purchased and wore a bathing suit. It has been 26 years since I have been in any sort of water for anything other than a shower or bath...except for my son's baptism in a BC lake where I had to jump in fully clothed because I no longer owned a bathing suit.
O my....why did I let my friend talk me into this, just half an hour ago?? She is so persuasive...she has a pool in her back yard and is looking for a friend who is free during the day a couple of times a week to come over and visit in the pool. She picked me. I fell for it. Eek!!
The good thing is that at my age, NO ONE looks that great in a swim suit anyway, AND no one pays any attention. I am just one more elderly, slightly tubby lady floudering about in the water.
So, off to the swimsuit specialty shop...in other words I am going to pay the small fortune I do not have for a suit I will only wear in the privacy of my friend's back yard...occasionally....only in the summer.
I am completely nuts....COMPLETELY!
