Stuttering Shell: Cover Up!

Cover Up!

I live in an area that relies heavily upon the tourism industry {well, that & the military and this isn't a post about the military, but...for what it's worth...I DO lve jet noise!}. When the weather starts heating up, the beaches get crowded, the traffic gets terrible & you come to loathe shopping for groceries at Super Wal-Mart {or any grocery store within a 10 mile radius of the oceanfront} on a Sunday afternoon.

That being said...

If you DO happen to go grocery shopping & you DO happen to be a tourist, please take heed of what I'm about to say. It's pretty simple & straightforward. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Are you ready??


No, I'm not talking about covering up the dark circles under your eyes...I'm talking about putting something on to COVER UP your bathing suit. This is especially important if you are going into a store or restaurant. It's one thing if the store or restaurant is right across the street from the beach. But, if you're standing in the produce section of Super Wal-Mart manhandling the cantaloupes & wondering why people are staring at you in your ugly one-piece bathing suit, maybe it's because us locals know that the closest beach is a good 15-20 minute DRIVE from the store. Really, since when is it OK to walk into a store wearing only a bathing suit?? It's just really unnecessary for you to show everyone in the store exactly what your momma gave ya, but then again, this is only my humble opinion.

I'd just like to add that after I saw this bathing suit clad woman yesterday in Wal-Mart - yes, this is a true story & she really was touching the cantaloupes - the store managers kindly asked her to put on a pair of shorts. Seriously.

I LOVE your new look!!

We live in a tourist area too. One which is HOT in the summer, 115-120 is not uncommon this time of year. And we have lake. For some reason this combo makes people think they don't need to wear cloths. Anywhere. I was at the grocery store this morning and in waltzed a family all wearing only their bathing suits - from kids to adults (about 6 of them). The worst was 'grandma' who was probably close to 50 in her string biking, tattooed stomach (I have nothing against tattoos - just don't need to see it on an old, wrinkled stomach). It was disgusting to see as I was buying my food. uck!

What possesses people, I wonder?

LOVING your new layout SO much!!!

And yes please people - CLOTHING!! I have seen this a few times myself!! And I will be honest - I will drive home from the beach with a towel wrapped around my swimsuit - but I WILL NOT get out of the car in just my swimsuit - no way!!

This should play on local stations as a PSA!

1. There is NO Wal-Mart anywhere near the beach in VB or Norfolk.
2. No one wants to see that.
3. Those guys do not think you are hawt-they are making fun of you.
4. See #1.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates to see this. It drives me NUTS to see everyone in beach gear, even if they are coming from Sandbridge. I don't wanna see it in my produce section!
