Now that Easter is over, the commercials are telling us it’s time to get “beach ready.” Then they want to sell us their gym membership/ laser hair removal/ body sculpting crap. Want to know how I get beach ready? The day after eating my fill of Cadbury Creme Eggs, I grab a couple of skirted bathing suits on the fly at Costco. In an assortment of sizes. Come home and try them on in the “comfort” of my own home. Which means I can heave and squeeze and cajole my thighs into these bathing costumes in peace. With the door locked. Find the suit that covers the most/ pinches the least. Return the rest.
That was surprisingly simple, and I’m out about 50 bucks and a small sprinkling of sweat. C’mon, summer! I’m ready.
