Spring Shopping Spree
Normally, I loathe shopping. I'm sure the feeling is one that other CFers share. When you combine my barrel chest, chicken legs, flat butt, flat chest and short waist, finding something to fit can be, well...an experience that includes weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Today was an anomaly. Not only was I interested in shopping, but I was prepared to look for a SWIMSUIT! (Eeeegads!) Off to the mall we went. The following is a little tune in honor of the event. It's to the tune of Take Me Out to the Ball Game.
"Take Me Out to the Mall Mom"
Take me out to the mall, Mom,
take me out to the crowd.
Buy me a sundress and shoes to match,
I don't care if we never go back
for it's CHARGE CHARGE CHARGE on the Visa,
if we don't spend it's a shame,
for it's 10, 20, 30 percent off at the mall today!
Well, I not only found a swimsuit that fit, but it's adorable!It's one of those tankini types, so it covers up my scars. The bottom is a little skirt with a split at the thigh, which makes my legs look heavier than they are (hooray!) My mom spotted a sundress that she said was perfect for me. She offered to buy it, so I wasn't going to argue. Then we found a nice long gauzy top to wear over the swimsuit so I don't burn, and the world's most comfortable pair of sandals.
I can't wait to show it off soon!
