bond girl pool moment

pool-old picture

Always bring a bathing suit when you travel, lest you end
up in a hottub in New Jersey at 2am without one.

This evening I made some time to go actually use my student
priveleges and go swimming, which reminds me of the last
time I found myself in a pool, I had neglected the rule
above.

It is Thursday or so, week of Katrina, my grandparents
had come back, and their house had no power and an electric
water heater, but it does have a pool. I, of course, in
the scattering of things I forgot to evacuate with, had
no bathing suit. Never fear, for the pool closet of 60s
insanity is at my grandparents' house. The closest thing
to fitting was this 1960s white with flowers bikini that
is a bit too big, but manages to stay on. I feel like
one of the throwaway bond girls at the beginning of the
Connery era movies. It was a wonderfully cold pool.

2am, hot tub, no suit? That's exactly the situation skinny dipping was invented to solve.

Oh no, not with who I was with that night.

You bother with swim suits in hot tubs in the south?

Funny people, funny ways :)

Note: New Jersey. Also note: it was myself and four guys, none of whom I had any interest in shared nakedness.

I ended up in a white t-shirt and shorts which was weird enough, let me tell you...
