Direct communication is always best, but if you want to leave me a water balloon in the sink I will have to draw my own conclusions.

I've been having fantasies about going to this place:


photo courtesy:  www.cancuncd.com  That's Isla de Mujeres and I really want to go there.

I've even spent some *free* time seriously calculating costs for six people and it looks affordable....if we don't eat for a few months and I don't ever get a boob job.  (Not that a boob job was ever "on the table."  But, hypothetically speaking.  The vacation would be about as much as a boob job.  So, *I guess* it's either "boob job" or "island family vacation.") 

I've even gone so far as telling hubby about this little island family vacation fantasy of mine.

He is notoriously cheap, but I thought he was completely on board with it.

Until I woke up this morning and this was in the kitchen sink:

That is a water balloon and neither the kids nor I will claim placing it in the sink.

Hubby:  Are you trying to tell me something?

I visited Isla Mujeres way, way back in 1979. It was a sleepy little town then, but it was gorgeous. The water is amazing, full of tropical fish, and the snorkeling was a blast. I hope you get to go one day!

I have friends who have been there and say it is just gorgeous - even more recently - like it's not really succumbed to the plight of too much tourism....yet. I really, really hope this will someday become a reality.

Maybe he was trying to make you half a set of fake boobs?

Monica said...

@megly mc - or just making a spare set so he wouldn't even have to involve me?

Megly Mc said...

Monica...you know...I'm pretty sure him making fake tits gives you carte blanche to buy that high dollar BOB you had your eye on.

I'm rooting for you, because my assumption is that people who vacation on dreamy islands like that aren't the same people that wake up to black, unclaimed water balloons in the sink. But I'd like to see some evidence that these two sets of people are not actually mutually exclusive, because I'm in the black water balloon set, but I like pretty islands also. So buy your tickets and inspire hope in us all.

Monica said...

@megly mc - yeah. I've been thinking - him making ONE fake tit gives me license to do quite a few things. y'know how some men (I guess possibly only the ones in movies? although, I can't name a movie where it's ever happened) when their wife mentions a boob job would say - "oh, babe, I love you just the way you are." y'know? well, he's not like that. when we talk boob jobs I have his full support (see what I did there?). @team Suzanne - firstly - thanks for the read and comment. secondly - you pose an interesting dichotomy. give me some time (and possibly a winning lottery ticket?) and i promise to inspire hope and change....wait....am i running for office or just trying to get a fucking vacation?

I wish I could sell my boobs and get a trip like that. Boobs are definitely not all they are cracked up to be.

If that was my Hubs, I'd think he was hinting that he'd like the boob job!! Maybe that's just my Hubs hey? Take it as a sign that he wants a water ballon fight with you, and your natural boobs, on a hot sunny day on the BEACH AT ISLA DE MUJERES!! Yeah, that's it.

Monica said...

@whatimeant2say - i agree, i THINK boobs are not what they are cracked up to be. but, i still would like a boob job for about a week just so that i could KNOW that for myself. @weeza - yeah, THAT's it!
