skinny dipping in alaska

right after john found a nail in our tire,
the rain drenched us with warm bath water on our way into costco.
big fat drops that made us look like we had just showered.
max's face was dripping from her chin.
brennan's head could have mopped my kitchen floor.
which it needs,
but that's not what we're talking about right now.
or maybe it is.
anyway,
do you know how cold it is to go into costco in the summer when you are soaking wet?
COLD.
all of that air conditioning blowing on our soaking wet selves,
and we might as well have gone skinny dipping in alaska.
and of course we had to make a stop in the freezer of veggies and fruits.
so, what did we do?
bought a fuzzy blanket and some purple smoothies on our way out.
not only were the little chickadees dry,
but so was our cart.
b/c really,
who wants to eat soggy bread.

Ah, the bliss of the freezing produce section at Costco! (Why do they have to make that place so dang cold??)
