Of Bikinis and Bunnies

Good morning all, and Happy Easter!! :) We forgot to color Easter eggs this year, but my Cadbury creme eggs were hidden around the house this morning when I woke up! ;) Hope everyone has great weather and a lovely day!! ♥ ♥ ♥

ANYWAY, I have a story for you... and would like your opinion! Read on, if you please...

So Friday we decided to walk to the mailboxes to get our mail. Lately our neighborhood is literally Construction Rowe; about 8 houses are going up at the same time so there are workers alllll over the place! (Not to mention dust, lumber, trucks, etc...)

We get to the mailboxes and I look down the road... in front of one of the houses are a young couple washing their cars, in bathing suits. The guy has trunks on and the girl has this little bikini on. Normally, I would say whoopdee doo, except for the following:

1. The house is directly across from the model home. So everyone visiting for information on the 'hood sees Bikini Car Wash.
2. About 50 construction workers swarming all about. Uhhhhh. Yeah. You know what they're thinking about at lunch and beyond. Your scantily clad bum. And bubbles from the soap.
3. Please don't wash your boyfriend's back with the sponge. PLEASE. This just takes it to new levels of ewwww.

My argument was that a little modesty goes a long way, and while it was unseasonably warm (mid 70's) and I'm far from being a prude as far as bathing suits go, it wasn't scorching enough to require teeny bikini carwash. A tank and shorts could easily be washed afterwards, and considering the general busy-ness of the neighborhood, make you stand out a bit less than a sore thumb.

What do you think? Am I being totally over-analytical of this? I just don't know!

Hmm. Although I totally see your point (believe my, we have idiots living around us and I can go on for DAYS about the dumb things they do) I'd say it's really their choice as to how dumb they want to be.

I think those two want attention. And they found a way to get it. So you're TOTALLY not being over-analytical. I would react too if I were there. Haha!

Do you guys have an HOA there? Seems like conduct that wouldn't be allowed.

I agree with you that they're being a little crude in displaying themselves like that. But I betcha someone will talk to them about it -- whether it's a prudish, nosy neighbor, or someone else in the community. I mean, you will have some families there that will probably say something to them.

But, let them be fools, I guess.

It was very warm around here this weekend...but bikinis here in April? I don't think so! I think she just wanted attention...I'm sure she got it with all of those construction guys around too. Gross.

This weekend was so hot! but washing a car in a bikini would not be my idea of a good way to spend my day.

Yeah that's kind of ... pushing the limit I would say. I mean, I'm all for the saying 'if you have it, flaunt it' but tastefully! Not when there's a bajillion people (and construction workers at that ... lulz) around. Then you're just really putting on a show and if that's the case? Just go buy yourself a pole and put a tip jar in your front yard.

I hope you have a HOA. I see a fine coming their way! At least put shorts on, a bikini top is fine with me.

Did the guy have a beer gut? Just curious ;)

I think this is pretty funny actually. I wouldn't ever wash a car in a bikini alone (definitely wear shorts or something), but if she's comfortable and he's happy then why not? The only weird part is all the construction workers.
