It's the most horrible time of the year: Swimsuit season! My kids are too little to go to the pool alone so I am going to have to squirm my over sized behind into one of those awful things and go outside wearing it. Unless you can help me come up with some great excuses for why we won't be going swimming this year? Please? Petty please with sugar on top?
Dear Loved One Too Many Things with Sugar on Top One,
|Because pastry, fruit in syrup, cream filling are NOT enough!|
Helen has a question for you
|Because why should Helen have to do all the work? She shouldn't. It's her blog, she should be sitting back drinking a martini while you do the heavy lifting of giving answers.|
Don't you also have to go outside wearing your over sized behind even when it's not squished into a swimsuit?
|Because if you've found a way not to have to lug around all that junk in your trunk the rest of us want to know how. because 61 inch wide seating would not longer fit FULL GROWN adults with luxurious spaciousness!|
In other words, why are you even thinking of spoiling your kids summer because you're suddenly aware of a physical short fall?
|\It's not the SHORT FALL that bothers most of us, dear, it's the WIGGLE of the Width! Some things you Can't just tie a scarf around and cover them up.|
Actually you CAN tie a scarf around your hips and go out. Or take the time to find a suit that suits your figure.
|Why not bloom in bloomers? I mean, who'd EVER think you were hiding anything in these?|
Excuses, my dear, are for sissies. Summers when your kids are young are fleeting things. In fact, summer is fleeting. Why let a little thing like, well, a BIG thing keep you from enjoying every minute?
|Hint: Beer helps.|
You can wear ANYTHING as long as you have the confidence to pull it off.
I don't mean like THAT! Whatever you wear to the pool, accessorize it with a smile and you'll be fine!
Have a wonderful week!
