A Pretty Good Afternoon

Today I sat on the beach on a giant over-stuffed pillow reading Dickens and digging my feet into the super soft sand.  A waiter brought me a lemonade and a thin crust margherita pizza and said "Bon Appetit".  Then I swam in the Mediterranean.  The seaweed looked like pieces of lettuce.  On my way out of the water a man asked me if I wanted a camel ride along the shore.  I declined because that sounded unpleasant in a wet swimsuit.  But I thanked him and nestled back into my giant pillow.

"Then I swam in the Mediterraanean." Those are words that most of us will never get to say. I'm so glad you are having such a good time over there!

That is a Life of Elegant Leisure that far surpasses anything I have ever experienced. If you have "Make Colleen supremely envious" on your life list, you may now check it off.

Are you scratching out all kinds of things on your bucket list?

I've never heard of "overstuffed" anything connected with the beach. Puhleese....

I probably would have taken the camel ride, and then gone back into the Med., but then, I've ridden an elephant (in Ohio...yea...I can hear your envy).

Loverly.

And that just rates a "pretty good"?!? Man, you must have some amazing afternoons.

I'm so happy for you! That sounds like a perfect day. I've been craving a beach day...
