I’d Rather Be Naked

It’s a scorching hot week.

The kind where you feel like you’re melting when you walk outside.

But even though the thought of going nude (simply to beat the heat) was tempting, I thought it might be awkward at Costco and the park, so I donned the next best thing: a sheer tank and a comfy pair of denim shorts.

There was no point in doing my hair, so up it went on the top of my head, capped off with a Gussy headband. The booties lasted through the trip to Costco, but were replaced with sandals for the park as the temperature hit 90. Yeah, we didn’t last long there.

Apparently, one of the side effects of this heat is that it renders me unable to make eye contact with the camera, and instead can only look down or to the side.

  • I never seem to have any trouble talking. My kids actually get quite annoyed with me, because if I ever run into someone we know, or I have to run something over to a friend’s house, etc. I talk and talk and can’t stop myself. But sometimes I sit down to write a blog post,… [Continue Reading]
