Last Swim

Today was last swim for Early Bird Lap Swim at the public pool. Sigh.... Some of us--who shall be known as Pixie, Julie, Dave, and Moi--met at Denny's for breakfast afterwards, in my case obliterating the good effects of swimming by eating Strawberry Cheesecake Pancake Puppies.

Don't ask me for an image. I would salivate all over again. Let's just say it's like a French Toast Fantasy. Henceforth, only a fantasy.

And that's not me. Not even the fantasy me. That's Cybill Shepherd from The Last Picture Show (film) and Pulp International (website). The film is based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Larry McMurtry. I have not read it but can probably find it at the library or on my parents' bookshelf if I need it. Maybe I have read it, but it would mean something different second time around.

I do have a black swimsuit, but, with Last Swim swum, I am throwing it out, because it is disintegrating. It lasted for two good years in chlorine! I think I will finally throw out all my old emergency-reserve-partly-disintegrating swimsuits in a flurry of late-summer cleaning activity to encourage the purchase of a new non-disintegrating swimsuit at an end-of-summer swimsuit sale.

I will save at least one. It shall be called Last Swimsuit.

Only with cream cheese icing.

So, Denny needs to rethink how he names his breakfast specials. I would probably love the whole cream cheese bit, but not sure I could get there with the "puppies" tagging along.

Kudos to you for tossing the near-disintegrating swimsuits. Can't imagine anything more frightening than a suit disintegrating while I'm wearing it! :)

Yes, a fearsome topic of discussion in our swim set, tolerated by the gentleman among us.

Does Pixie work at the library?

Seems silly today was the last day since kids don't go back to school until next week. Sorry it was your last swim!

Thank you for contemplating stimulating the economy by purchasing a new swimsuit and french toast.
