Things Discovered at the Beach

24 Jun

Today I was able to sit on the beach for about three hours with Main Squeeze and it was fascinating.  

Did you all know there is a whole other world out there outside of work?  Why didn’t anyone TELL me?!  I get so wrapped up in dealing with the dipshits…that I forget there is a big, beautiful, amazing world out there.  Just listening to the waves and breathing in the sea air….better than anything else in a long time.   I did make some realizations.

– Some dads, not all of them, remind me of Bad Boss.  They just sit there in their chair and the sweet wife does all the work with their kids….and she never gets to sit down or get any rest.  Shouldn’t it be a team effort?

– People with beautifully sculpted bodies really are pretty amazing.  I’m not talking about the kind of bodies that are enhanced with fake stuff either.  Just the people that work hard and treat their bodies quite well.  It is not something you see super often…at least not where I am.  I always dreamed that would be me walking down the beach…but, it isn’t.  So, I admire the ones that are stunning – men, women, whoever. 

– PAY the extra money to rent the beach chairs and umbrella…totally worth it.  You ARE on vacation, you know.

– Tiny children do not seem to mind eating sand.

-Swimming and jumping in the waves is still fun.  Finding nasty-ass seaweed clumps inside your bathing suit later is not.

– There is nothing like the feeling of a cool shower after a long, hot day at the beach.  If only all things in life were so easily solved.

    “Some dads, not all of them, remind me of Bad Boss.”
    Agreed. But like Bad Boss, most of them either don’t realize there is a problem or they think the world revolves around them.

    “People with beautifully sculpted bodies really are pretty amazing.”
    It’s hard to sculpt a body in a cubicle.

    “Tiny children do not seem to mind eating sand.”
    I can’t imagine it being too pleasant to poop either…

    “Finding nasty-ass seaweed clumps inside your bathing suit later is not.”
    Things Pop says in the shower after the beach: “How the heck did sand get in there?!?!?!”

    I think the children are practicing for when they’re old enough to eat sand-wiches. Ooooh. Sorry. It’s too early in the morning for a pun.

    Do you think babies look at cubicle dwellers and think: “Apparently, adults do not mind eating shit.”??

    hahaha i remember sitting by the shore and letting the waves wash over me for hours….but later it was such a pain to get all the fine sand off me.

    that baby is so freakin’ cute!! 🙂

    ” PAY the extra money to rent the beach chairs and umbrella…totally worth it. You ARE on vacation, you know.” – totally with ya because trying to get sand out from various crevices is not fun.

    Genetics also play a role. I am not saying that it is impossible to be in good shape with bad genes – it is just harder than it is for those genetically blessed.

    Kids could LIVE on sand, I swear… I know I thought I could when I was a wee tot.

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying your vacation :).

    I discovered something at the beach once too. A condom, draped over my foot.
