Cuarto feliz de julio!

I'm sitting here on the couch, watching the boys blow up a couple of air mattress things that you can use in the pool. Their mother was kind enough to send them over. Thanks. Maybe there was a reason that we don't have those kinds of things? Maybe the pool isn't really big enough for them and we don't want to have to deal with the mess of storing them? Maybe I'll stab them with a steak knife later.

I went swimsuit shopping yesterday and it was a success! I wasn't looking for a great suit, just one that I could live with for vacation. The boys and I were in Kmart (somewhere that I rarely go but I had a coupon good for $10 - yay, coupon!) and I found a black halter style one piece that contains the tits and keeps everything smoothed down. I wish that I could have found one with a skirt on it but this will do. If I don't look down at my legs then maybe nobody else will either. I'll probably just fluff up my cleavage so the eye is drawn to it instead of all of my other flesh.

We're going to watch a fireworks show tonight and the band Starship is going to be there. Since I found out they're going to be there, I've been hearing the song We Built This City on a constant loop in my brain. I also have the strange urge to put on some slouch socks and an oversized sweater and to put my hair in a ponytail on the side of my head. This shall pass.

Only 8 days til we go on vacation! Yaaaaay!

I hope everybody has a safe Fourth of July. Don't blow any fingers off.

LOL, LOL...You always give me a good laugh...I think you should stab those floats...AFTER the boys play with them once!
Hope you have a very very Happy Fourth, my dear....I know you are counting the days till you go on that WONDERFUL Vacation. Oh, and
give Stinky and Tiny a BIG HUG for me!

Regal said...

You have a good 4th too and thanks for the senitments

Mike said...

A swimsuit that contains the tits? What would be the point of that? I much prefer free range tits.

Midwestern city Boy said...

Those air things are fun for a while but they always blow around in a storm and get holes in them. Solid floats are much better.

And I'm with Mike. Isn't the whole point of a swimsuit UN-contained tits.

Cissy Strutt said...

I get very excited when you say the word "coupon". I'm guilty of spending money to save money - "see I bought two of them, so I saved money." But did I even need one? Never ask that question.

I love the sound of your swim suit, don't listen to those smelly boys, they have boobs on the brain.

A well placed pin hole would be far more devestating and far less imcriminating. you won't be evil because, you know, those things develope holes all the time.

Sara Sue said...

Wait ... are we popping the mats or the boobs?

patti_cake said...

You are too funny Chickie. I'm sure you look hawt in your bathingsuit! I bought one at K-Mart too as a spare.
Hope you have a wonderful time on vacay and is your niece, Sylvie coming back with you?

Shave all your hair off with the steak knife. Everyone will be too busy staring at your hair to notice the legs. Works every time!!

Scott English said...

I think the problem with a pin hole, as Ginamonster suggests, is that it can be too easily patched.

However, I must admit that at least one air matressy thing is nice - I kinda enjoy just laying out on the water on one of them - its like a hammock without the string marks left on your butt.

Hope you had a great 4th. Personally I don't have the lung capacity to blow anyones fingers off.

Ginamonster said...

No, no, you have to put the pinhole on the SEAM so it can't be patched and it looks like a weak seam instead of something intentional. Sheesh.

Scott English said...

Hehehe, I guess I was just not thinking deviously enough!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Hook the devil be damned thing up to a compressor and turn up the pressure 'til it pops like a cheap party balloon. If you're going to be a bear, be a grizzly bear! Don't blow a finger off when it goes though!!

Chickie said...

Joey Polanksi - Only if I get caught.

Lady of the Hills - The boys had a good time with them so the floats may live to see another day or two. I just hate seeing them scattered out on the pool deck.

Regal - You're welcome :)

Mike - Trust me, free range is not the way these suckers need to be.

Midwestern City Boy - After these floats die I'm gonna get the boys some of those noodle things.

Why am I not surprised that you've got Mike's back on this? ;)

Cissy Strutt - I actually have another K-Mart coupon and am trying to think of something that I need so I can justify using it.

I think smelly boys most always have boobs (or something of the sort) on the brain.

Ginamonster - I figured you meant a pinhole in the seam. And that may very well occur...

Patti_Cake - Sylvie isn't coming back with us - SHE IS MOVING TO GEORGIA!!!! She'll only be about 2.5 hours away and I'm sooooo excited!

The Phosgene Kid - Nah, I need to keep the hair well coiffed so it leads they eye to my cleavage and not elsewhere. But, I bet a nice short 'do would be a lot cooler right now.

I am really digging the air compressor idea!

Scott English - I like laying on the mattress things. I don't like looking out the back door and seeing the boys whacking each other with them or the wind blowing them around the yard.
