peppermint tea

June 8, 2009 thescarletpoppy

well, after sleeping far into the afternoon (which yes, was glorious) i’m facing the rest of my completely lazy lazy day. filling it with reading and drinking peppermint tea. accomplishments today: watching many episodes of a show that fulfills my secret single behavior, thinking about food, and reading a book that i could have written: how to be single. i’ll never disclose the first, as it is secret, but food is glorious so here are a few food items i have been dreaming of today for no real particular reason.

green beans

and yes, i do realize that none of this really goes together or has any rhyme or reason except for deliciousness…

anyway, aside from food, i feel the intense need to share this excerpt from how to be single because when i read it i had a moment of “wait…did i write this?” i think if you know me you’ll see why:

“So, first off, let me tell you a thing or two about two-piece bathing suits: they’re underwear. Why don’t we just admit that? For some reason, when you put sand and water and sun together, you’re allowed, even pressured, to go out in public in your underwear. You’re expected to expose yourself to friends and family members, sometimes even colleagues, in a way you would never do in any other given moment in time. If [my friend] were walking around in [a store] in her underwear, Iwould say’ “Hey, put on some clothes. You’re walking around in your underwear, that’s weird.” But because the underwear is orange nylon, it’s okay.

I don’t want to wear my underwear in public.

My solution has been to wear a cute little bathing suit top with men’s surfing trunks.”
