I haven't yet carped SIL's DVD. As far as she knows. But she has a meeting today, heh heh heh.
The pool last night was a lot warmer than I was expecting, which was great. But that's where the pleasant surprises ended. Turns out the pool nazis were on duty tonight. No swim masks. OK, fine we have a bunch of goggles. But then I got "Ma'am, you can't go off the diving board backwards." So I got to do one back dive and that was the end of that. That really sucked because I don't usually get to use the diving board at home and I wanted to practice. Phooey. Sluggie and one of the cousins (who could easily pass as sisters) were being giggled over by some boys from cousin's school (and of course there was return ogling and giggling.) I hauled out our rubber fish to play catch, which made a decent icebreaker and soon all were involved in frolicky fish-throwing fun. Surprisingly, the nazis were OK with that. Frank and his girls came, too. The cousins are all girls, Frank brought four of his and of course there were my 3. Gordo was definitely in the minority but didn't seem fazed.
Since the pool is so close, we didn't bring clothes to change into. In the locker room, when Mollusc asked about this, I said, "We're just going to wear our towels home." She chose that moment to be very literal and also to follow instructions (which she has been getting a little guff about not doing lately) and as I stood in the pool lobby chatting with Frank and SIL, Mollusc came out looking a bit self-conscious and said "Can we go soon so I can get some clothes on?" A moment later it registered with me that she was wrapped up in her towel and holding her swimsuit. Shock. I immediately sent her back to the locker room to put her suit on, but not before Sluggie could yell "Molly's naked with only a towel on!" And of course that's when the boys came out of their locker room. Poor Mollusc was mortified, but the boys, fortunately, hadn't heard, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
Here's something to brighten your day. I know I'm certainly going to make an effort to touch more nuts. What about you?
