nice swimsuit

so, there we were…

at the local swimming pool on the opening day of the summer…

the place was packed…with parents and kids, babysitters and kids…and about 1000 children from the local ymca…

summer had just begun and school had just let out…so, everyone was in good spirits…

my wife and i were sitting in the water and playing with our kids at the wading pool…and i was taking it all in…

the sun, the fun, the sounds of summer…

then, i turned to look behind me…and there was a little girl (not more than two years-old) walking towards the wading pool…

she had an adorable swimsuit on, one that was as cute as our kids used to wear when they were that age…

so, i turned towards the child’s mom, who was standing right by us, and said…

that’s a nice swimsuit.

the mom looked at me and said nothing…a look of disgust covered her face…

i sat there, frozen, thinking…

what’s happening?!

i think i remember hearing my wife mutter from beside me…

she thinks you’re talking about her suit… 

[the mom was in a bikini]

the mom turned towards her child, picked her up, and walked off…

feebly…i called after them…

i meant your daughter’s!
