Swimsuit Heaven!!!

Anyone sensitive to over-consumerism, quit reading now.

One of my very good friends, Nadine, has a fabulous friend who works at Jantzen. She was awesome and got us into a sample sale today. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but had swimsuits on the brain for the last couple of days in anticipation. I was OVERWHELMED when we walked inside. Racks and racks of swimsuits in size 8 and 10. My size!!! In fantastic brands like Nike! And...a posted sign with the price of the suits. It went something like this:

One-piece suits -- $2
Matching two-piece suits -- $2
Single tops or bottoms -- $0.50
Shorts -- $2

I just kind of stared in disbelief at the whole scene and slowly walked around the room not quite sure what to do with myself. Then I just started grabbing anything I was remotely interested in. When I couldn't possibly hold anymore, that was my cue to check out. As soon as I got home from work I went straight into the bedroom and started trying everything on. I started laughing hysterically when I counted 22 suits. And then I almost started crying when I put them on. THEY ALL FIT!!! Swimsuits never fit me! I added up all of the price tags for a grand total of $1444 (retail price). My price? A whopping $44. Nadine has been completely forgiven for the whole New Year's costume incident.
