Things with great significance this summer. Since I am still in a lazy post vacation modus, I don´t do alphabetically… Not that is important anyway, right?
Paradise: my parents beach house that is. Being some meters from the warm sand, the waves that put me to sleep every night…
Family: no drama, no fighting – just chilling this year (thank you happy pills)
Bleach: this year my mother wins an special award for ruining just 1 pair of shorts. Honorable mention for 2 missing socks.
Gossip club: 13 minutes into the first day I know who is who, who is doing what, where, how and/or who. Rule nr. 1 is to position your beach chair strategically in the sand. Also, minimum age is 73, I think – but I got VIP gold membership at the end of our stay.
Friends: one specially, Mireia, my true and closest – can´t tell how much I love her in just a few words…
Life guard: The usually big-like-a-closet and experienced guys that come from Argentina to work the Spanish summer were replace for this cute as a button, 40 kg young out of school boy. No need to say that he was the laughing stock every single day he walked pass the Gossip Club.
Money: I have spent a lot… No need to say more.
Sexy time: Zero; well, honestly, some 30% flying solo.
Goosebumps: nothing like bathing naked, really… Take your suit off in the water and feel. One of the best sensations ever. Not good only when one of your kids run out of the water towards the next beach and I had to walk naked a couple of hundred meters to get him. That day I got fired from the Gossip club or I got my VIP gold membership status… Still not sure.
Shameless: this show, the American one, was my real entertainment way before falling sleep. Genius!!
Movie: This year, the movie date for the girls features “Moonrise Kingdom” and pink popcorn. Super sweet and funny. Was Instagram to have a movie, it would be this one.
Rain: back in Bergen, kids are out for some days and I am alone. I feel alone. Vacation is over. I feel blue, more that the sky I long for.
The last one, but not the least one:
Mr. Incredible: He decides to buy a Volkswagen Up!, basically a backpack with wheels, and I change his name from AttentionWhore to Mr. Incredible. 4 days and I will be in his arms…
How about your summer? What words would describe it?
