Swimsuit Shopping and Writing Prompts

Today is the day of the dreaded swimsuit search. I have to find one. Preferably one that fits and hides a few things. And makes me look younger and thinner and and and... Well, you know what I mean. Unless you are a boy, then you don't know and therefore don't count. No offense.

I detest swimsuit shopping. It's right up there with bra shopping and death. And dishes. And pinkeye. Shudder. All bad stuff.

Why do I hate it so? Because I am not a super model. Heck, I'm not even a model citizen. But I am a mom, and as such I have fluff. Yes, fluff. And fluff, not to be confused with blubber because that just sounds so wrong, doesn't look all that good in a swimsuit. But snorkeling in Levis is hard so I need to find the suit. See?

And yes, I will be snorkeling soon. Say it with me, "Hawaii!"

So, I will brave the stores and the changing rooms and even the *gasp* mirrors. I may be scarred for life, but I will be clad in a new suit by the end of the day. Wish me luck.

And just to tie this in with writing, consider this a writing prompt. SWIMSUIT SHOPPING. Get to it, and post your finished swimsuit exercise in the comments. I'd love to read what you all do with this topic.

The best underwater aerodynamics can be found wearing your birthday suit. Stick with science. You can't go wrong.

Swimsuit shopping. Another way we voluntarily torture ourselves. Mirrors. Skin. Body parts shoved where they don’t naturally fall. Or worse. Body parts showing where they really exist. Reality check. Huge, earth-shattering reality check. And goals. #1. Never shop for swimsuits again. Or #2. Lose a bazillion pounds, exercise through the night, eat only collard greens and brown rice for the next twenty years and THEN shop for a swimsuit. But by then, Mother Nature will have finished her work and there will be no need anyway.

I’m thinking instead that swimming in Levis sounds mighty good - at least for me.

Blake, um yeah, I've never been good at science. Now I know why. He he. :)

Jonene, collard greens. Yum. No wonder I'm fluffy. :)
