Like the other day when the Fedex lady showed up with a package. I got super excited, as I'm apt to do if a brown cardboard box or a large gray bag arrives.
Me: "Oh, yay!" I'm so glad you're here! That's the bikini bottoms I ordered to replace the ones I have on right now that I totally worn out!"
Nice Fedex Lady: "Oh, OK." And then she giggled politely and pretty much sprinted back to her truck.
I didn't care...I had my new bikini bottoms and I would be ashamed no more by my tattered suit.
Only it wasn't my bikini bottoms, it was swim trunks I'd ordered for my kid. So off I went, disappointed, in my threadbare duds.
And what happened at the pool that night? My favorite eleven year old in the whole wide world looked at me and said, as I walked by the pool, "This isn't happening!!!" And then he covered his eyes.
Yup, this mama is lookin' gooooooood!
