In the Pink!

There are so many trends for spring 2009. The number one color for the season is pink. I have never seen so many catalogs, fashion magazines, websites and store windows filed with this luscious color. Pink comes in so many shades, bubble gum pink, hot pink, soft pink, and the good news is that pink looks good on Everybody-well  almost everybody……….


 I have had a love of this color for years. However, my appreciation of this pretty hue was almost derailed yesterday at the indoor pool where I do laps. There I was going back and forth in my efforts to have a swimmers body-(not a Michael Phelps body-I’m not that delusional) but just a bit more toned so clothing skims over your curves instead of clinging to the bumps in the road…but back to the derailment-I was  doing a lap turn and BAMB!-there it was -a NEON pink Speedo on a man  that had more hair on his body than the faux fur coat you just put into storage, and a mid section that had become a bit too familiar with Crumbs cupcakes! Please understand, I don’t think that everyone needs to walk around in supermodel shape-(even though it seems to be a requirement when you get off the plane in Los Angeles), I’m just asking for a bit of taste and decorum when getting dressed and parading around  a public pool where people can actually see you.  The man wearing said Speedo probably has a vision problem that he isn’t aware of YET!  Obviously, he couldn’t detect the brightness of the neon pink, and instead of purchasing an extra large pair of bikini trunks he purchased the extra small which resembled a very thin string of neon dental floss s.t.r.e.t.c.h.e.d. to the max and barely covering his bottom. Visually- it wasn’t pretty!


 My mother always said that “good taste never goes out of style” but I wonder if Mr. Neon Pink Speedo took a second glance in the mirror before his neon light show parade around the pool. Goodness knows if he did- he would know he was exactly “in the pink.”
