Summer 2016 Still Not The Year
Well, 2016 again was suppose to be the year of the swim brief. At least it was the year to make it my beach attire. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, but wasn’t because I chickened out like last year. We never made it to the beach this year, so that made that goal a bit difficult. I guess I’ll have to wait until 2017 to have a year of the swim brief at the beach.
I could have manned up and wore my swim brief at the pool we went to several times this summer. A confined area like that intimidated me a lot more than a beach where you can get somewhat away from the crowds. Also I thought the clientele of this pool may be more objecting of a guy in skimpy suits. I seemed to have been wrong on that one. At our last visit to the pool, there was one brave guy sporting a swim brief when we arrived. I wasn’t there when he stripped down to it to know if there was any reaction. I didn’t notice any oddities or looks towards him when I was there. He did have the body to wear one and definitely pulled it off better than I would have. He did give me the impress that he may have been a foreigner. He definitely was very comfortable wearing them. Suppose I just need to get over what other people think and just wear what I want to. Maybe I need to expanded next year’s goal to include the pool.
On a positive note this year wasn’t a total lost for wearing a swim brief. I did get plenty of backyard time wearing one playing with my son in the family kiddie pool. Also got a little sunning in. I guess it is back to dreaming of another break out swim brief year.
