Found a head on the beach.
Found another head on the beach.
Yesterday I stared at some kids making out on the beach in front of me. I'm not against public displays of affection in theory but in practice I think it's gross. Plus I could tell the girl was less into it. I wanted to give her an out in case her boyfriend was coming on too strong by making them feel uncomfortable.
Making people feel uncomfortable when they are being bad is the only kind of civic action I'm involved in. For example, this woman at church kept coming in and out of the chapel and propping open the door. Someone told her they wanted to keep the door shut and then she turned around and mimicked that person by making the "blah blah blah" action with her hand and by opening and closing her mouth really fast while rolling her eyes. I was staring at her and when she noticed I didn't look away because I thought that if she was going to do something so overtly immature and rude she should know that I was watching her. It's kind of ineffectual, I know. In fact, I saw her about two weeks later at TJ Maxx browsing Petites while I was over in in Womens. Yeah. Who's laughing now. I get it.
So I stared at these kids and then for a second I looked at my kids who were behind them and waved at them to come in. Then I commenced staring at the making outers. The girl chuckled and told the boy that she thought "that lady" was looking at her but really "she was looking at her kids." and then she gestured at my kids. I wanted to say, "No, I'm totally staring at you and I heard what you just said about being relieved that I'm not staring at you but I am and I hope you don't go all the way with that boy because he's too pushy." But I didn't. They left pretty soon after that.
I also stared at a woman in a golden bikini while she played Frisbee with a man in the waves. He kept "teaching" her about catching and he threw the Frisbee into the waves so she would have to jump and swim. When she threw it "badly" to him he told her to go get it herself. And she did.These people were over 30. Why were they even together? Why did gold bikini lady have to fit into and look good in the golden bikini and also frolic in the waves and also be proficient at Frisbee? Her boyfriend was a jerk. I hope when I'm over 30 and wear golden bikinis I refuse to suffer jerks.
Wish you were here.
