7 Quick Takes: Post-Beach Edition


It would be a good idea to inventory your purse before traveling the 3 hours home from the beach.  Because the next morning is way too late to wonder what happened to the key fob that will cost you 300 dollars to replace.

*****************

BlogHer attendees?  We don't want to hear about the great time you are having.  Sorry.

The other day Rachel said, "I wish there were a money tree we could just pick money off it!"  I told her, "We have one of those.  You call him Daddy."

 *****************

Husbands!  When your wife eyes the kids' beach chair with the intent of sitting on it, do not say, "Well, that would totally finish it off!"  As Larry can attest, there is no way to backtrack from that statement.  Believe me, he tried.

****************

We keep hearing that America has an obesity problem, but nothing drives that home like a day at the beach. 

*******************
Considering the above, and the fact that 6 pregnancies have not done my vein-covered legs any favors, I'm thinking that there might just be a place in my wardrobe for the attractive yet modest burquini.  My skirted swimsuit bottom just isn't cutting it anymore.

  1. Oh, Larry Boy---that's a doozy.

    Did you promptly dig a hole in the sand and bury him?

  2. A burquini! Brilliant! And it looks comfy, too.
    Larry sounds a lot like Doug with the little quippy one-liners. Tell me you kicked sand at him.

  3. Great notes here. I really like your observation of obesity so evident at the beach.
    Congrats on your POTW at the Goddess' blog.

  5. I've met you in person, and you do not fall under the category of obesity at the beach. And let me tell you, going to the beach as often as I do? I've seen some things that make me want to gouge out my own eyes, as well as whatever part of my brain it is that maintains those mental images.

  6. The Burquini is the best. thing. ever. I want one. I'm not kidding.

  7. When I was stationed at the Presidio of San Frnacisco decades ago, I made the mistake of going to the wrong end of the beach, the clothing optional end. The people that were naked really should have been clothes, a burka would have been good for them, or at least would have protected our eyes...

  8. Are these burquinis for real?

  9. Hopefully the burquini would cover up my mother's flabby arms that I inherited. It wasn't the twinkies I swear - it is in the genes.

  10. I've been living without the key fob since it fell off at a Dairy Queen in Gilroy (garlic capital of the world) a year ago. You give good advice.

  11. I am here via the Everday Goddess. Congrats on winner her POTW award.

    I love this. I can totally relate to everything you wrote. Well, except for the six pregnancies part. I must be better at it; I reached the "how-do-I-cover-THAT-up?" stage with only three pregnancies

  13. Just graduated to the "miracle suit" this year. Bad, Larry. Bad, bad Larry! You should know better by now.

  14. I love the burquini. Perhaps you should open up a shop?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Where do you find these things? i am talking about burquini? LOL.

  16. I'm afraid a burquini would only emphasize what I'm trying to hide. I think I'd be better off in a burka. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, I hate being hot and therefore wear a swimsuit.
