Camping: Kayloo & the Thong

Camping was HOT. Holy-Crap hot. Speedos-Aren't-A-Good-Idea-Unless-You're-Michael-Phelps, hot. Thong-Bikini-Bottoms-Are-NEVER-A-Good-Idea-Oh-My-God-That-Image-Will-Be-Burned-Into-My-Retinas-Forever, hot.

And I forgot my bathing suit.

You know, this should not surprise me. The last TWO work trips I went on I forgot my glasses, which is a serious problem considering my contacts dry up like potato chips and I am blind enough to run into dark doorways because I CAN'T SEE THEM. I even forgot my glasses when I went to Mexico where the whole Grand Master Plan was to sleep in, sit on my duff and read trashy magazines. Waking up in the morning and FEELING my way to the bathroom, trying to avoid breaking my toes on every corner I couldn't see wasn't originally a part of the itinerary. But you know, it added a bit of sport to my mornings and gave me an excellent excuse to start drinking before lunch.

Kayloo had the right idea. I should have just grabbed a thong and plopped right down in the lake. My family was there though. That could have been... awkward.

If you liked this post and you would like to share it, that would be super! Thank you so much!

  1. Looks like Kayloo at least got to get wet and cool off! Shoot, what's wrong with wearing shorts and tucking in a blouse up under your bra!

    Hi. I have a blog at where I feature people's posts about camping, and I would like to send my readers your way. Of course I would give you credit for quotes and would link back to your site.

    Thanks for considering this,

    PS: I could feel the heat, & feel for your poor abused retinas. Would've been a good time to have forgotten those glasses!

  3. With respect to Thoreau, simplify, simplify....
    Perhaps the whole goal of this vacation thing should be to just sit in a thong-bikini-whatever, reading trashy novels and drinking great wine -- with our dogs:-)

  4. lol- I think you guys have it right :) I just loved that she camped out @ the edge of the lake. Perfect! Even better was that after getting soaking wet she's go & shake off around my mom. Love it :)

  5. @Richard and Jean- thank you so much for wanting to link to the blog! I'm glad you enjoy it!
