With the long weekend fast approaching my mind has been entirely focused on the impending vacation and the fact that in just a few days I will be sitting by a pool in Las Vegas, preferably with a cold beer in hand and reading a girly magazine.
Which means that it’s only a matter of time until I will be enjoying the same accoutrements lounging by the ocean instead. Feeling the warm sand under my toes, listening to the waves crashing against the shore, napping AND tanning simultaneously…aw crap, I got phones to answer.
I know, I know. This might seem like a random third choice here. Dance party and cocktail lounge are polar opposites. There are a plethora of other options I could have gone with. Bachelorette Party, Office Holiday Party, Sweet Sixteen. You can dance AND lounge to The Beach Boys so couldn’t they go into either of the other playlists? How does that classify a separate genre? So on and so forth.
Cool it. The answer is easy: POOL PARTIES ARE AWESOME. Who doesn’t have a wonderful memory from their youth of splashing around with an inflatable whale or inner tube? Besides, summer is only a month or so away. Even in LA where it’s temperate year round we can’t wait – 65 degrees is too cold to prance around in a bathing suit no matter where you are. Now that May is almost halfway over I can almost taste those Arnold Palmers and feel the warm breeze while kicking back on a chaise lounge. The sweetness made ever so much better by an excellent soundtrack. Ah….
