100 Word Challenge - Swimsuit

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, temporarily hosted by me, but normally authored by the Beauty Queen Velvet Verbosity. The word this week is "Swimsuit".

100 Word Challenge


It Was An Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeney ....


"I don't think she should wear that suit."
"Oh, don't worry so much. Our daughter's growing up. This is her first bikini, this is a big day for her."
"It just seems a bit skimpy. I'm afraid for its ... durability."
"Oh she'll be fine. Everything's covered."
"But she's always been such a tomboy. She doesn't know how to be , um, concerned."
"You're just an old fuddy duddy. Now be quiet and watch her high dive."
"Well ... that was nice."
"Yes. See? Nothing to worry about. Ooooo. What's that in the water?"
"Where?"
"Right there .. right there where she went in."
"Swimsuit."

There's a song in my head now!

And I am sure that this has happened on more than one occasion to a tomboy!! And they prolly had an uncle or an aunt sing that song when they heard the story of the tomcat's dive in her bikini!!

The Dad is mourning the loss of his buddy and unsure about the replacement in his buddy's skin. From throwing baseball's and going fishing, he has to realize that she is going to shop for more than jeans and a tee shirt, instead looking for cute tops and dresses that fall a little too short... not that they do, but on his buddy they are revealing...

...revealing that the time is coming for him to say, "Girl, you will be a woman soon," and she will be a memory of a different time.
