I’m nearly unconscious in this picture.
This is me, on my honeymoon and on the romantic and beautiful island of Cozumel Mexico. We had stopped to take a break and I had to sit down because I was feeling faint and quite nauseous.
Notice what I’m wearing. A heavy-cotton button-up blouse, snug jean shorts and shoes and socks.
In 90 degree weather.
On a tropical island.
Where the humidity was so thick it was hard to catch your breath.
Hence the reason I nearly passed out. I had a serious case of heat stroke.
I overdressed for our tropical trip. I had no idea, no freaking idea, that it would be that hot.
But I was naive and inexperienced. I had never been out of Missouri, let alone the country, so I honestly had no clue what to pack – obviously.
I was miserable the entire time we were there. Simply because I was too stupid to pack the right clothes.
Heck, I’d have been better off running around naked.
Kevin would have liked that.
I might have caused blindness in the natives, though.
When we went back to visit Cozumel this past June, I was prepared. I wore light-weight stretchy shorts (notice the jean shorts I’m wearing in this picture AREN’T the stretchy kind? Stupid girl), spaghetti-strap shirts and flip flops.
I didn’t look as “put together”, but I didn’t care. I could breathe. And I kept cool.
I’m older now, being comfortable trumps being cute. 🙂
