How To Get In Trouble On A Beach Blanket



The heat index is over 100 degrees. However, that will not deter my trouble meter this year at the beach.  But I have learned through personal experience NOT to do these things. These are pics from last summer's interesting trip to the shore. It was memorable in so many ways. I will try to handle myself with more aplomb this time for the sake of my royal reputation.

How To Get In Trouble On A Beach Blanket

1. Fall asleep without your sunscreen on


2. Neglect to securely tie down the umbrella above your head


3. Drink too much


4. Feed the seagulls too close to the blanket

5. Accept a marriage proposal  (see #3)


6. Take a beach bag that is not sand and waterproof.


7. Leave your camera in the sun too long


8. Procrastinate talking to the cute guy with the awesome tan wearing a spiffy hat and mysterious sunglasses on the blanket down the beach street. You get busy chasing umbrellas and birds and he's gone! 

9. Step on your sunglasses

10. Camp out near supermodels in string bikinis (see #8)

11. Pretend you are not afraid of approaching sunbathers being walked by big slobbery dogs - even if you are terrorized and terrified. You never fool the dogs. 


and never EVER
11. Wear a hat that could double as a Frisbee.


Trust me on that one.

I will keep all those things in mind, although some would seem to be the opposite of what you should do if you're a male.

Hey you...

my two favorites are the acceptance of a wedding proposal, and the drinking too much. LOL

I feel like Hell today.. I had sinus surgery on Tuesday... I have nothing else to say about that topic...

I hope your weekend is great.

You were checking out hunks whilst being proposed to? tsk tsk!

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - Of course, you as a world traveler extraordinaire, already knew these things...

Mimi Lenox said...

Shoes - I hope you are feeling better. See email.

Hot from the desk of the fabulous Sir Tom Eagerly:
Madam, I have got into much more trouble than that on a beach. It relates to your number 3 I'm afraid.
Well I thought it was a nudist beach but I went to far again. Damaged my reputation.
Bottoms up! (Actually that's a part of the problem).
