Girlfriends, it's hot! Really hot. So I'm going to try to take a couple of decent photos so I can get back inside to the A/C.
You know you're deep into blogging when you go out and purchase a piece of clothing just so you can participate in a style challenge! That's how I ended up with these shorts. Everybody's having so much fun with Jasifer's Big Fat Summer Challenge I just had to join in. But one of the items to wear is short shorts. Well, let me just say I stopped wearing those 30 years ago and since then, have kept the length of shorts I wear to just above the knee. So, you see, for me these are short shorts.
I found the length of them acceptable, even though they are waaaay out of my comfort zone. To my surprise when I wore them out in public, nobody was gaping in horror or snickering behind my back (I think). Strangely enough, at the market, people were more concerned with picking out the right watermelon and getting the best sale on hot dogs than the length of my shorts or the spider veins and cellulite on my thighs. Amazing! I also wore them out to dinner last night, but the restaurant was dark, so I didn't know if that was a true testing ground.
Oh! I should also mention I
I'm marking "short shorts" and "something I normally wouldn't wear" off the list. Yay!

Wondering what that thing is I'm holding? It's an old glass float I snagged at a yard sale this weekend.
I'll be taking these little yellow shorts to Patti's Visible Monday. Come join me.
