O.K.
Husband is out of town. We miss him very much. So I decide to take my girls someplace fun.
I put together our swim bag and go to a huge swim park. They are so happy and I'm glad that I have the energy to do this.
So we have a fine drive there. Get a great parking spot. Smile and hold hands skipping to our fun afternoon.
We're in the changing room (we found a Family Changing Room. What luck!) and my oldest has everything all set and asks if she can met us by the pool. "Sure. Don't get in without me", etc.
While my youngest is still trying to put herself together I'm looking in the mirror noticing that my exercises are starting to work. The thighs aren't so bad right now. Let's see the back-side.
Oh...My...God! As in God Help Me!!!
The back half of my swimming suit has been eaten away by chlorine of summers past.
I'm all there for the world to see.
Sh*#%@*t !!!!
I wrap a towel around myself and walk to the main desk to see if they sell swimsuits. Name your price. I don't care.
Nope.
My youngest is ready to go. My oldest is waving at me from the side of the pool. And there I am. In my invisible swimsuit.
I made a deal with my young one to stand directly and closely behind me upon entering and leaving the water. "Promise me Lily!!! Promise!!!" "Yup. O.K. Let's go on the water slide!"
Oh my... There's a long line and a tall stair-case. Why? Why me?
I've learned a lesson from this.
I'm never going back to that swim park again. I'm sure they'll thank me.

  1. Same thing happened to me last summer. I was 7 mo preggo, and the only suit that would fit was one from SEVERAL years ago. So, after being on bed rest for several months, I get to go somewhere, to a pool party...put on my suit, make my grand entrance, belly and all...hubby says "ummm, Ruth. Your suit is a little thin in some key places." Back on with the clothes, no pool time for me. Thankfully we were with frined who averted thier eyes. In horror, I can only assume!!

  2. Bit of a shocker there - bet you thought your costume was extra breezy that day!

    About the Obama/Clinton thing. I woud've said the other way round - am 4,000 miles away so take what I say with a pinch of salt. Clinton is the known opponent for McCain, whereas Obama is unknown. It's in their interests for Clinton to win the Dem nomination as all the old mud can be slung. Better the devil you know, etc. etc.

    Hope you buy a new swimsuit soon!

  4. Oh my gosh! I've had that happen with a suit, too, but luckily found out before leaving home.

    I remember once when my sister and I were at the local pool (years ago...) and the top of my two piece came untied at the lower part -- the neck stayed tied, so the top was floating fee and so were my "girls". My sister just laughed... I was so mad! I think I just hid in the corner of the pool until our parents came to pick us up. I never wore that suit again.
