Pictures or it didn't happen.
It's a common refrain 'round here.
I'm sure you know what it means, but if not - I don't believe what you are telling me unless I see it with my own eyes.
When we were in Puerto Rico (yes, I'm still talking about this trip, what can I say, a LOT of stuff happened on it!) we were given the opportunity to choose from two tours. We didn't have to take either - we could have stayed at the hotel and hung out by the pool - which was my choice. But the husband and I, we vacay differently.
In his opinion, rest is for the weak and the dead. On vacay, you see everything everywhere that you possibly can. I go away to sleep. And to lay by the pool. And sleep some more.
I'm always about the fun.
The husband really wanted the rainforest, and so rainforest it was.
There was only one problem. I had no shorts to wear. I had jeans, and so I put them on with a t shirt and went downstairs, where I was met by my new friend.
All these FRIENDS. I sound like I'm in grammar school.
We met a couple on the trip and I bonded with them immediately. They were delightful - the very best part of the trip for me. Every part of the trip that is a good memory involves these two people, and we had TONS of fun. The woman saw my jeans and shook her head.
"You can't wear those!" she exclaimed. "You'll die of heat!" I explained that I had no shorts, and she shook her head. "We are about the same size, so come up to my room and I'll loan you a pair of shorts." I was a little skeptical - I have a JLo booty and I KNOW that shorts are tricky for me. I also am super conscious of the fact that I have thick, ugly legs, and so if I do wear shorts, they are longer.Never, ever shorty shorts, and I made a promise, years ago - there will never be words across my butt, unless they say "Wide Load".
But she insisted, and I had to admit that I was a good deal more comfortable in her shorts than mine.
Even if I did walk around the Rainforest in booty shorts that had WORDS across the butt.
We were supposed to Zipline, but the rain came down in torrents and it was called off. So that item still remains to be done on my Great Bucket List o'Life. But, you can cross this one off the list - I did wear booty shorts. With words across the butt. Words that said Cavaliers.
