to a new epawsode of Bacon’s SHOW&TELL. This time: embarrassing moments of the past.

Well we have enough in that box, I tell ya…

Maaaaany moons ago the hippie-style and the last gasp of flower power came to the little village too where the mama grew up. Late and nearly forgotten in other parts of the world butt at least it came. That time an aunt of the mama bought a knitting machine, the root of all evil, then from now on all kids of the family had to go beknittered to school what led to many school yard brawls and to many tears. Butt it is possible to create nice things too with a knitting machine, like rainbow colored bikinis, what the oldest cousin of the mama created like a pro from the leftovers of her mothers entanglements.

The cousin and her friends wore this knitted bikinis to lay in the sun on their balkony and to prance around with a drink (applejuice!!!) in their hand, pretending they live the high life…

The mama and her nearly same-aged cousin Andy wanted to live that kind of high life too and so they begged Andy’s older sister for such bikinis. Her sister was a nice girl, said yes and within 2 hours two fabulous rainbow colored bikinis saw the light of the day. The sister said they are NOT for swimming, just to for roasting in the sun …. yeah, got it!  said the two little girls, grabbed the bikinis and disappeared….

Because the balkony was still  occupied Andy and the mama waddled to the public pool and parked their butts in the sun and enjoyed the envious looks of the other kids.  That’s boring after a while when you are 8 years old and when you see what fun all your friends have who swam or played tag in the water…

And within the blink of an eye all warnings of the older sister were furgotten and the two chicks jumped in the pool….


…uhoh!!!! first the pants disappeared and then the tops, soaked with water,  hung down on the little girls like ole tatters… rainbow colored tatters, butt tatters…

wool is not made for swimming and the gravity of soaked wool is immensely… and because 8 year old girls have a lot to hide the two stayed in the pool till their lips turned as blue as ink….and every minute in the water when you can’t move feels like eternity…

And before they died in the public pool of a little village the two girls counted to 3 and jumped out of the water in their shred-kinis…. oh the laughter of the kids as they saw the half naked mermaids… and because the two chicks were eggs-tra smart they wore their knitted tops to their  hotpants as they waddled to the pool… and therefore they had to sneak home wrapped in their towels with the shred-kinis in their hand … two divas…. defeated, humiliated butt with the mind full of dark ideas of revenge…

    Sometimes it’s better to listen to instructions….bwahaahaa!

  2. What a story, bad, bad, bad. I feel in my heart the terrible pain, what those bikinis made.

  3. OH NOOOOOO! A shred-kini nightmare indeed! Some lessons are learned the hard way when humans are 8 and think they are able to make good decisions (NOT!). But I have to say, this story was HILARIOUS and made coffee come out of my Mom’s nose as she read it…..that’s a good thing – right?

    Hugs, Sammy

    I remember those knitted bikinis. I didn’t get one as I thought my nips would slip through!

    but I thought about it. Nowadays they’d have to be knitted with spandex. LeeAnna

  5. Midwestern Plant Girl says:

    Ha ha! That was a hilarious story! At 8, I thought nothing could stop me…. well maybe a wet shred-kini could 😲

  6. Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs says:

    BOL… oh dear this took me back to when I crocheted a cotton ‘kini’ – as you say it was all the rage. Only mine didn’t come with the warning. Sigh…….. so your mama – and I am sure a few other girls around slice earth, had company! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. As that Lauper girl said; “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”

    Oh brother! We are laughing so hard here at the Hotel Thompson that even the mommy snorted. Bless your mom’s heart. To be so embarrassed at such a young age. Hilarious – remember I’m laughing with your mom now. My mom saw such a wonderful knitted swimsuit at our beloved Tybee Island last time she was there. She wanted it but now she has doubts for sure – piggy laughing out loud. Thanks for sharing your wonderful story. XOXO – Bacon

    • I’m glad your mom hasn’t bought it… it needs 87 years to find your dignity back after such an adventure LOL And the two diva’s avoided the pool after that day… specially after Andy had another super embarrassing adventure there…

      • Piglove says:

        Oh dear. That was so hilarious brother. Mom says that maybe these knitted bikinis would be good for the nudist colonies. I mean hey, if you lose your clothes does it really matter there? Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      • and no one would laugh, you’re right :o) but I have some doubts if you can enter that colony with the knit-kini :o)

    Awwww, Easy, I LOVE your mom’s stories and drawings!!!! I think they testify beautifully that she was able to keep her childhood spirit. It’s just wonderful (and priceless, of course!)

  16. Gail is thinking thank goodness she stuck to knitting clothes for her teddy bears only….

  17. Bwahaha. The best laid plans of young girls. That knitting stuff can be quite knotty or is it naughty? 😉

  35. Oreo says:

    WOW!! What a story!! Good to know to stay away from wool BOL


  36. Those poor girls in their bikinis. Thanks for the smiles, Easy☺

  37. A real horror story! (Easier to laugh after a few years…)
    We were always warned to never buy a white bathing suit as it turned transparent once wet. (Old fashion fabrics), but sister-in-law’s first trip to meet all the family wore one to the beach – she didn’t come from a place where swimming was common. Teenage girls of the family met her in knee deep water with big beach towels.

  38. Dolly the Doxie says:

    OMD! ROTFLOL! Love this tops (hehe) anything my mom thought was bad, thank goodness! Love Dolly

  39. Looks like there were wardrobe malfunctions long before Janet Jackson came around…
