I'm talking about shorts, tank tops, halters and bathing suits.
So, tell me.....is it a body image thing or an age thing that makes some of us crazy when it comes to summer fashion? You would think that since I've lost all of this weight, I'd be jumping at the chance to show off my body. Not so much. It's a 50 year old body. It's showing some signs of wear!
Yeah, I'll admit it--I have a tinge of body image issues...just a tinge (not!). None of that goes real well with shorts, halters, bathing suits or any type of body baring fashion. Even if I'm no longer obese.
Well, that just pisses me off.
I really wish I were a skank. You know what I mean. I wish I were born as someone who loved wearing shorts up to there and necklines down to there and teeny-tiny bathing suits and risque halter tops. If I were a skank, I wouldn't care. Age appropriateness and self-consciousness would not be in my vocabulary. Believe me when I tell you, sweeties---if I were a skank--I'd be having a major shoppingapolooza right about now! I wouldn't be eying up clothes (in a size I'm happy about) thinking "I think I'm just a little too old for that look" or "Yeah, right!". I'd be beeping and bopping and hooting and hollering---"BRING IT ON!! " And, I'd be strutting my ass wearing those skanky clothes right down the main street of Judiland!
For all these years, I always blamed my ever-bulging body for hating the onset of summer and all it's skimpy clothing. Only to come and find that I'm just modest. (Well, not when it comes to shoes....) Evidently, I was modest when I was obese and I'm modest when I'm not obese. That sucks! I do not like knowing that about myself!!! Who knew--Judi is modest? I am definitely not modest when it comes to the way I live my life. I'm no light weight when it comes to being a little wild and crazy and excessive! Trust me, I can party and smoke and cuss and carry on like the bad girl who lives inside my soul. So, why in the hell can't I bring myself to buy a pair of shorts and a tank top AND wear them out in public? And, why in the hell won't I even consider a bathing suit without a little skirt?
Life is skanky....ain't it?
