I Don't Get It

Things That Don't Make Sense

I Can’t Wait Till Summer So Overdressed Older People Can Gawk At Me February 3, 2018

Well, what do have we here? It seems as though Mom and Dad have just returned from Sunday services, and Margie (who surely attended as well) quickly changed into … why, YES, it IS a teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini (the song actually came out 10 years after this picture) and is testing the pool water. But doesn’t it seem odd that Dad hasn’t at least loosened his tie since returning home? Mom didn’t pause to take her gloves off and set them on the counter? It’s such a strange juxtaposition. Can’t her parents swim? Dad is either so full of pride at the amazing back dive Margie has in store or he’s stabilizing himself from holding that heavy camera. Come on, Margie! You can do it!

    Mom and Dad are well aware that a third party is taking this shot and they are not smiling. They are actually gritting their teeth. Mortified that they have raised such a hussy.

  2. That juxtaposition is really very odd and a little bit uncomfortable.

      I knew you would find it odd. I actually thought to myself, “Laura will think this is creepy” LOL. It’s like she’s on display. I would be like, “Either get in the pool with me or go away!” Although I did always like it when my mom applauded my diving…
