It Ain’t All Champagne and Caviar

Quote of the Day     “The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.”       Niccolo Machiavelli

There are a few things about a vacation, and one to the beach in particular, that remind us: in the wake of Adam and Eve and their dreadfully poor judgement, there is no corner of the world that can be paradise complete.  A beach holiday is no exception.  

Is there anything more disagreeable than donning a wet swimsuit?  Possibly sand in your bedspread, which is a certainty after day one at the beach.  Also, ice melts really fast in the heat which means you need to drink up your beers as quickly as possible.  And I truly despise applying sunscreen, especially to the back of a brother-in-law.  Finally…well…I can’t think of any other drawbacks.  I hope this has made you working stiffs feel a little better about your cubicle while TB enjoys the beautiful Folly Island surf and sun.

Wish you were here!

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    One must consider why one is putting the wet bathing suit back on; hence, why did one take it off in the first place. My guess, at this point in your life, it wasn’t for skinny dipping. Alas….

    The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful!
