So I went to the beach today. (Santa Severa) Yeah, on a Thursday. My life is sweet.
We had a great time. Well, most of us. Mac is NOT a fan of sand. He does like seashells. Except for the part where they are covered in sand.
When it was time to leave, I gathered up the sand toys to go rinse them in the water. I was wearing my new bikini bottoms and an ancient top. As I bent over to swish the toys . . .
Yeah, my bikini top snapped in two.
So here’s the difference between 24 and 34. My previous self would have been MORTIFIED. I would have wanted to dig a hole with those sand toys and disappear forever.
Now? I laughed. I laughed and laughed and laughed.
I did call my friend for backup to assist. But I didn’t crawl in a hole or even worry about anything that much.
It helped that it happened facing away from everyone. It definitely helped that I wasn’t surrounded by work associates or a bunch of my friends’ husbands. Stakes were low.
I’m glad I can laugh now.
