over the past few weeks I have been feeling a desire to have a new bathing suit. I’m not sure why as I seldom wear one. anyway a few days ago 2 friends and I were walking home from lunch and we passed a nice looking bathing suit store and in we went. I chose a pretty one with bead work that I liked and went to try it on totally ignoring its design.
when I looked in the mirror my eyes opened wide at the image of my current body encased in a “standard design” bathing suit. this was not a case of looking like I had “put on a few pounds”. my Buddha belly was fully protruded from the large lunch and I looked like a frog. a big fat mamma frog !!
what I loved was that I found the image so ridiculous that I pulled back the dressing room curtain to model for my friends and the saleswoman. all of whom went scurrying to find bathing suits designed with figure flattering skirts 🙂 fortunately they found one that I really like. it’s like a mini sundress with a built-in bodice .. rather than a frog I now look like a chubby pre-teen 🙂 … now all I need is mary-jane flip-flops 🙂
