I hate to admit this. But Hubbie and I ventured out to the stores for the first time “post-Christmas” on Tuesday evening. It really has not been that long since Christmas’ however, all the madness had died down (I think that lasted about 24 hours?!?) but there were still bargains galore to be had. We really weren’t shopping for anything – Hubbie just had a few returns to make (this is a pre-scheduled post-gift opening event…but that’s another post) and we were browsing. What?? the bathing suits were out! Yes, I know this happens every year but I still get caught off guard. I was expecting the Valentine’s cards and goodies but swimwear?
So I rolled my eyes several times. I might have made a few sarcastic comments (who me?) and then…..I can’t believe I’m saying this – I bought one. Really now? Who buys a bathing suit in December?? Me!! I have the worst time finding a suit that fits all my criteria and/or expectations but this one did and, you know, if I waited to buy it until spring, they would be gone. Right??
I did NOT however try it on at the store. Goodness, who needs to peel off layers of sweaters, tights and corduroy to try on a swim suit!! But I will never ask again – who’s even buying this stuff??? Oh, and I did buy a new winter coat (for a great price)….surely that even things out! 🙂
