This is what happens when you write for a lingerie website… you get lustful, even when against all intuition, you know your body won’t look good in a 2 piece. Or that having your saggy ass drooping over the ‘metallic’ strings of the string bikini won’t feel good for even two seconds… forget that no one will see that string as it’ll be hidden under the fat.
But, writing is all about making the reader “feel” the moment, helping someone forget, for just a few brief seconds, their reality as they are swayed by the possibilities.
The article is done and submitted. I’ve talked myself down from the Cha Cha Cha bikini and am off to the shower. Picture me shuffling down the hall in a nappy looking pale blue fuzzy robe with short black socks (furnace broken again!) in leopard print slippers. Hairy legs and stringy dirty hair. The “could I fit into a bathing suit this year” me wants to skip breakfast and see if sweating it out at the gym will help. The “fuck it, who’s looking at a 56 year old in a bathing suit” me will have oatmeal.
