Today’s question is: Why would anyone wear a worn out bathing suit to the beach (or anywhere)?
: This is not only a story but also a warning, a warning about what not to do. I had the pleasure of having nice and warm weather for one day today. It was like summer is supposed to be. So after the kids went to their class and I allowed them sufficient time to get good and bored hanging around in the yard, I took them to the beach. We had been there a little while and I was enjoying a great article about Twitter in Time Magazine
, when I looked over at the two woman and child that arrived next to me and was, let’s just say, a little surprised at what I saw.
I sat there looking at this young-ish, rather large lady wearing a one piece bathing suit. When she turned around, I noticed this odd oval shaped spot right down the middle of the butt area. Upon further notice (ok I was staring but I had my big dark glasses on and it wasn’t like she was looking my way) I realized that the oval shape was really a worn out section of her bathing suit and what wasn’t immediately apparent was now screaming at me, it was her butt crack.
That’s right, I could see her butt crack, PLAIN as DAY!
Her butt crack, at a public beach. Not just the top edge (that shows when ladies bend over with jeans on), that bathing suit was worn down so that you could make out most of her butt. I was embarrassed for her but how do you tell a complete stranger that her bathing suit is worn out, completely, right at her butt crack? You just can’t do it. What I really want to know is why her friend didn’t tell her? I mean, I tell people all the time that they have food in their teeth, you better believe I’d tell a friend if their ass was clear as day showing through their suit.
Because I’m me, I sat there wishing I brought my camera so I could take a picture of it, it was that unbelievable. Once she walked down the beach I remembered I could get a pretty good picture with my blackberry. However she never came back. Probably better you don’t have to actually see it. The image I painted for you should be good enough.
Do yourself a favor and make sure all your bathing suits are in good condition before you head to the beach or pool this summer. Consider this your warning!
