Don't be so nosy!

People I know have recently had their debit cards hacked and their identity stolen. I have a notion it begins with these scam artists phishing for personal information.

This was one of my e-mail headlines today: Body Ready for Summer?

Who wants to know, and whose business is it anyway? Some weight loss guru have a miracle cure for thunder thighs or blubber belly? I'm not buying, so you can stop prying!

Just between you and me, my body wasn't ready for winter, therefore I hid it under layers of clothing. Spring is an invitation to expose a little more flesh...like my toes, and anyone who knows me knows I love the freedom that comes with wearing flip flops and sandals.

In spring I resume polishing my toe nails; I shave my legs and pluck any German wild hairs which occasionally spring up on my big toes.
I'm okay with exposing my feet, but shorts are out of the question this summer. Knee pants or Capri length, that's as high as I'll go.
And sleeveless? Well, it will have to get awfully hot before I consider baring arms.

What about you? And what would you do or say in response to an email such as this: Body Ready for Summer?

Hrmmph!

Hrumph about sums it up!!! I'm with you on the flip flops, only I wear my all winter. My toes HATE to be stuffed inside shoes! But I gotta say, Linda, you're looking quite lovely in the picture to my right. You look ready for just about anything!

I know my blog has featured feces transplants, green sinus runoff, and paronychia...but I ALMOST had to stop reading at your big toe hairs. I just can't do feet.

My body is ready for stronger elastic...flowing, gauze-y fabrics...maxi skirts...

Last summer I discovered the joy of sundresses. They cover a multitude of sins and are nice and cool. There are more of the same in my summertime future!

My body's not ready for summer, spring, winter OR fall. ha ha ha I WISH I could say, "I love me, just the way I am," but I can't.

I never ever EVER wear shorts. Mid calf is as high as this girl goes in summer. Lots of long shirts and earrings. Yeah. Flashy earrings. ha! Take care, Linda.

And thanks for your visit and comment today. Appreciated both. Susan

I hate those phishing things!
As for uncovering in summer, the only thing I undercover these days is the air conditioner!

I just delete any e-mail that has subjects like that in them. And as far as summer....you know I don't do any kind of flip-flop or sandal that shows my "weird ugly toes." ,,,,And Val, if you missed my two-part blog post on my feet from last year.....I'm sure you're happy about that! :)
Thanks for stopping and commenting, Linda...Some people just never do....

I would love to show off this body, but it's a little saggy/baggy since I lost some weight. It looks like capris, 3/4 length sleeves and billowing skirts for me! I love your new picture!

I delete messages like those immediately. You're right, they are being nosy!!

I cringe. Is that what you call those - German wild hairs? Had to giggle because I've never heard that term. I got so many ads for plus sized clothing on Facebook that I've started launching searches for "clothing for women who are too thin." YES, you and I know it's a lie, but I wouldn't call myself plus sized, either. Take THAT, Facebook!

After menopause I discovered that my tummy was no longer flat and that's just the way it is. Oh well.
