Balboa Island and the Tale of the Whale

See, this blog thing is already coming in handy, because there is a little something that has come up that isnt really appropriate for Pooper's website . (which also brings up ANOTHER thing....Im not quite sure why I am now calling my family members by their nicknames, but I am, it seems very bloggerish, and so Im doing it, ,,, not that their real names arent already public info...but, whatever.)

On Saturday, we went to Balboa Island to celebrate Little One's birthday ( Pooper's site will have all the happy ramblings with photos in the morning.) I grew up nearby and have fond memories of riding my bike around, eating junk at the Fun Zone, and cruising on the ferry. I also have memories of attending events at the Tale of the Whale, which is a restaurant/banquet hall that is right on the water.....we had our swim banquet, our student government banquet, and Doug even had his School of Ministry banquet there. Yeah, seeing the Tale of the Whale had me reminiscing, but it also conjured up some more recent thoughts....Tale of the Whale, WHALE TAIL, get it??

Someone pointed out to me, recently, what a
"whale tail" really is.....

See, I cant yap about this on a kid's site!

Now, I thought the whole point of thongs was to avoid panty lines. But Im having a hard time believing that people would be self-conscious about a little rift in their pant fabric, but are perfectly fine flashing the whale tail.

The only explanation I can think of, is that at the time that thongs came into "fashion" (or whatever), high waisted pants were still in style (not that I would know anything about style, as Im still wearing high waisted pants, because the low rider style just accentuates and promotes my muffin top, whole other topic tho') So, maybe people got so used to wearing the thongs, and then the hipster pants came back, and people didnt realize that thongs+hipsters=whale tails.

Point being, it seems the whole purpose of the thongs is now null and void, so, we should probably get rid of them, and the low rider pants too. Yeah, let's just all go back to wearing our granny panties and high waisted pants, with our muffin tops getting a little extra support and nobody will need to worry about flashing whale tails.

Unless you live in Southern California and you dont have a muffin top anyways, because you are really fit, or had it suctioned out, or tucked, or whatever.....and you like being part of the ocean scenery.

**** dont forget to take part in the poll located at the very bottom of the page, Ill update them often, just for fun.

I love the new blog! Can't wait to see the pictures of the kids at the Balboa Fun Zone for Little One's first birthday. I'm in total agreement with the whole low-rider muffin top scenario.I am finding more clothes for fall that fit "on the natural waistline". The problem is my natural waistline doesn't exist anymore.
