Escapism

I'm rounding up the herd and whisking them off to Kensington Park to meet friends and check out the new sprayscape/waterslides. I'm kind of annoyed that it's $3 per person when the sprayscape in Pontiac is free. But this is sooo much closer. And the waterslides look cool.


Could someone please put sunscreen on the silly strip on my lower back for me? I always end up with the stupidest tans. Actually, I think I already have a brown strip there so there's no point in trying. I also have some very odd tan splotches on the sides of my upper thighs. Apparently I'm going for the holstein look.



If we stay long enough, it will be on to the co-op from there, which means that I might just be able to avoid looking at/thinking about the dishwasher for the better part of the day. Hooray for denial!



Update: it's 58 degrees. We're aborting to the Milford pool, for which I still have paid swims. No working on that holstein then, but if they're closed again (stuff like that has happened to us several times there) I'm going to have a cow.

I'm game for the No Holstein Tan duties Candace. When do I start? 58 degrees? That's THO weather.

Candace said...

Brookem - heh! Too accurate.

Egan - Excellent. Yeah, it's a bit nipply out. But you knew that.

egan said...

Ha, nipples. You're home already?

Candace said...

Well, yeah, it's 2:30 here and we're waterlogged and chlorine-riddled after 2.5 hours of swimming. I'm doing your lovely after-swim dance so I don't get swimmer's ear. Yeah, Baby!

My friend had quite the swimsuit dilemma. You'd have loved it.

No more wrinkles! During the school year I am outside so much that I shun the sun in the summer. (Hey I'm pushin' a certain older age!)

There's fun to be had for FREE somewhere in America? I don't think three bucks sounds bad at all.

Hey, isn't that a Gernsey?

I love the Remove the Water From Ears dance. It's my specialty.

Claire - I should shun the sun (say that 5 times fast!) but I love it too much. At times. Though I can often be found under a rock, tapping on the laptop.

Gawpo - It's supposed to be a holstein. Guernseys look like this. I mean, you're talking to a girl who spent 21.5 yrs in Cow Country. Then again, I see that there are some Guernseys now that look like this. So who the hell knows. I know that holsteins are typically black and white, but it looks like they come in brown, too. :)

Egan - I look very hot doing it. If you consider looking like you're having a seizure hot, that is.
