Pink Saturday

Ode to my very pink Ipod

While waves caress the sandy beach
and the sun casts her golden rays
I lay here on my many-colored towel and let my thoughts drift by

I think of those who are at home
I think of those who are here
I think of the things I should have done
and all the things I fear
I think of work
I think of love
I think of the future and the past
But most of all I think of how my butt looks in this bathingsuit...
Darn it's hot!

When I think I cannot lay here for another minute
I suddenly remember my Ipod
Hot Pink and full of fun
I plug it in and slowly all my thoughts drift away into nothingness
Jason Mraz fills my ears and my mind
I hum the tunes and follow the beat with my sandcovered fingers
Doesn't matter that the couple next to me are staring...
Right now life is great!

Yes. I can see how a pink ipod would be poetry worthy. I wrote a poem to my pellet stove this winter which was probably weirder. Have fun on the beach!

Happy Fourth of July and Pink Saturday rolled into one!

Hi Ann-Kristin.

Cute ode to your ipod!

So is your butt "hot" as in a hottie, or is your butt "hot" as in "on fire b/c of the sweltering heat?" LOL ;)

Happy Pink Saturday to you,

Bonjour madame:O)
Skjønner du nyter livet der nede...heldig du.Og den Ipod din var bare dødskul...Jeg elsker jo alt som er rosa jeg da vøttu.Regner med at P.Ø. har ankommet..kos dere masse.Her regner det,og meldt dårlig vær resten av uka..Kanskje like greit for Bono som har sangjobb hele uka på Toppen..Klem fra Maliva

Thanks for all the sweet comments. Especially thanks to Per who thinks my behind looks absolutely fabulous... Not bad after 15 years of marriage!

And Valerie - hot as in sweltering sunburned hot! When I came home my whole backside was as pink as my Ipod and I could definitely have taken a picture and used it for my Pink Saturday post. (But there will be NO pictures of my butt EVER on this blog!)
