Here's what I think is so strange about the Beach;
There are people walking around in broad daylight with basically just their underwear on, and everyone is okay with this.
BROAD DAY LIGHT + UNDERWEAR(should)= AWKWARD, but it doesn't.
This has become the social norm that we have accepted.
I know, I KNOW, there are beaches where even less is accepted, but I would just like to pretend those don't exist in my perfect, Modest, world.
I have told you before I have issues, but this is how I see it.
You've got your old man with the huge white preggers belly and black socks that go up to his knees.
You have the creepy speedo dude that NO ONE makes eye contact with EVER!
You have the mom that thinks she's the shiz because she is still in a two piece, but really all the other moms are like put those stretch marks away. It's making us hurt just looking at them. And then again we are like , YOU GO GIRL! If you have nerve to rock the two piece after babies... more power to ya!
You have the teens that bless their hearts are trying so hard to follow the lead of the models on those Victoria Secret commercials when really they should just be kids and go play in water for Goodness sake!!
And then there is me.
I am no longer even in board shorts these days people, I am in the full blown Beach Dress.
Yep, that is where I live these days, and if ya don't like it ... I don't care.
It's not that I am ashamed of my aging body, but more because a beach dress is what makes me feel comfortable. I also, rarely to never get in the water.
I did however just purchase an old 50's style polka dotted bathing suit, that I MIGHT bust out if it gets warm enough here. See, I am trying to work on my issues.
But, fortunately for me, my beach dress works just fine most days, because it doesn't get that hot here.
Ya see the thing is that
I seriously have to laugh sometimes when someone walks by me and I'm taken off guard by their almost full blown nudity.
I wonder if it ever shows up on my face.
I think it must look something like this.
A kind of deer in headlights-open- mouth -home alone-shock and awe kind of look.
I know I was brought up in an ooober modest home and that's why I still at 37 years old have this reaction, but I wonder am I alone?
What are your thoughts on the beach attire?
Do ever feel like if your great grandma were alive she would have that look on her face as well?
I know it's random and silly but these are the thoughts that keep me thinking.
