Open Letter to Those Silly Teenage Girls at the Pool

Dear Teenage Chickies at the Pool...
Do you really think that going swimming in full makeup is what's going to attract the boys? Let me tell you, it's not. Especially after you've went underwater and come back up with every last bit of eye makeup smeared and streaming down your face. I was laughing my arse off. As were the group of boys you were trying to impress.

Next time might I suggest waterproof mascara, or better yet, be confident enough in yourself to not feel the need to put on so damned much foundation that I could carve my name into the side of your face with my fingernail. I'm sure the natural look is far more attractive on you than $40 worth of Clinique running down your face.

I'm counting the days until it gets hot enough that all the boy-crazed teens retreat to cooler climates and leave the pool for us family types. Usually they only stick with these flirting rituals for about a week or so before it gets too hot for them!

I hope I don't encounter this today as we hit the pool for the first time. But I'll be on the lookout!

Very funny! I just read your post to Claire (12) who swears she will NEVER be like "those girls". And you know? I believe her!
