Default Dress

As always on this cruise we noticed men and women in their 40's and 50's trying to dress like they are 18. Once again, ladies get a clue. You do not look good in clothes so tight that you have pounds of flesh over flowing........very few women can wear short SHORT dresses and look good. . One lady in her 40's in the Casino comes to mind immediately.....I do not exaggerate..She wore a halter top and the tightest, shortest, hot pink shorts we had ever seen....lol .....it was so funny to see her constantly pulling up the short tops (sliding off her large stomach) and pulling down the bottom which kept riding up....you had to be there..lmao. AND GUYS in your 50's....lose the pony tails! Contrary to what some of you in that category think.......you are not cool and the young women you come on too think you are very strangeeeeee.. Saw numerous guys trying to look, dress act like a studly 20 year old. While outside the Butterfly Lounge (puffing )...unkowing to Mr 50 year old Pony Tail in a shoulder padded coat....I observed him look in to a mirror surface and say in a low voice "Damn, you look good".....you can't make this up.....lol. Me, being me, startled him when I said "have another drink and you will look even better" <G>. Actually, I hope people guilty of this type of dress and behavior keep it up.....it always provides a great source of amusement for Deb and me. Especially, people like the 50ish guy in speedo swim wear at the pool. Thanks for providing us with something to laugh at.

Now Rick, you know I have to disagree with you on this one. I totally love the huge women who wear the seam-busting clothes which only cover the folds that, if exposed,may get them arrested. The tight little aerobic bodies with no hanging flesh sicken me. They should be the ones covering up, at least until they have something to hold on to.

Nothing gets my motor running more than watching a huge shadow traverse me while I'm laying in the deck chair only to look up and see the massive flesh of a beautiful woman glistening in the sun. Whew..................now that's hot !

Regards,
Thomas

Thomas,
You should write articles for the Dairy Farm Gazzet, I bet you could even make a heifer sound cute as a button. :-)

Boys, boys, boys ...

Calm it down.

Not EVERY middle-aged lady can't wear short dresses. It is helpful, however, to have legs like twigs.

And an up-lift bra doesn't hurt, either.

I am now going to change my LGL packing list to include a VERY short dress. Film (well, make that digicam) at 11:00.

Just wait.

Boys, boys, boys! I'll let you have your fun and leave this one alone! I am going to check what I'm packing for the LGL trip though, no short skirts for this 54 year old!

I just don't know what to think now. I have my speedos and thongs packed for the Summit. I hope I don't infringe on anyone's sensibilities.

NA, I don't think this bunch of cruisers has any sense!

Rick,
You are on the money. Last week I was talking to my Uncle's boyfreind and he proceded to tell us about the Thong my uncle was wearing on his last cruise. He kept telling me how everyone was looking at my uncle because he is in such great shape. I tend to think everyone was thinking "what in the hell is that 50 year old man doing wearing a bright pink thong".

Just my 2 cents.

One great thing about being a woman is no fashion faux pas we make could ever come close to the Speedo.

I see no real difference between a fat woman in a bikini or a fat man in a speedo! Anyway, speedos are really designed for swimming, not sitting around a pool, and bikinis are designed to attract attention.

Rick,

Should we explain the term "coyote ugly" to Thomas?

Norm.
