When we were in Puerto Rico - and seriously? I know I've started a dozen posts this way. I'm almost finished, I swear.
Anywho, back to the story.
My husband loves to play tennis. I hate to play tennis. I mean, I HATTTTTEEEEE to play tennis. It ranks right up there with, say, shooting pool -
which is also something that he loves to do. Sigh. Poor him, married to me.
On Friday, he really wanted to play tennis. He asked his workmate, who had gone on the trip with us, and whose wife is MUCH more fun than I am - and both of them wanted to play tennis. So I put on a new to me pair of shorts (my dear friend Kendra had sent them to me just the day before I left, and this becomes very important later in the story) and begrudgingly made my way down the street to the courts.
I wanted to lay by the pool. My husband promised - Just an hour, I'll only play for an hour, and then we can come back and swim! And, besides, you can take pictures of us, and I know you like to take pictures -
And so I went.
About half way through the Tennis Matches of Eternity, my husband motioned me to him. I'd been walking around, climbing up on various benches and chairs to get some pretty good shots. I was getting into the spirit of taking some really good action shots, and finally wasn't so grumpy about giving up my beach time.
He leaned over and whispered in my ear...
You are wearing pink striped panties, aren't you? You know I can see through those shorts, right?
Um, no. Had no idea. They were beige linen J Jill shorts, very cute, and apparently, very thin.
Which explains why I had no shorts to wear when we went to the rainforest. And also explains why I took no further pictures. As soon as the tennis games were over, I yanked my t shirt down as far as possible, in order to hustle back to the room. Where I planned to put on my bathing suit and go to the pool - but Mother Nature had other ideas.
Later that night, my husband was lucky enough to participate in one of his other favorite activities:
This entire story is to explain why a) I had no tan when I came back from my trip and b) why I will be shopping for more appropriate clothing choices as soon as possible.
