POOLSIDE: A HAIKU

July 17, 2015

POOL_1

We love, love the pool
Oh, we do, we do, we do
(bad curse word) WE’RE FRIED!

Clearly, we’re meant to be poet laureates. Dare we say, together, we’re the Dr. Seuss of our generation. But, that point is moot in comparison to the revelation that all too often, more than just being revolutionary poets, we’re just dumb in the sun. Here’s a photo of Brock a few years ago. Point being, we’re unprepared for the sun. Our excitement for a day by the pool, perfectly described as:

Chris: “BROCK! WE’RE FINALLY AT A POOL.”
Brock: “I KNOW. LET’S BE MERMAIDS.”
Chris: “OKAY!”

All caps, meaning, we literally scream to each other.

But, those sizzling days in the sun are OVER. OVER. Bennifer II OVER OVER OVER. a.k.a. we went to the pool recently, dipped our toes into the water and said, “ohhhh, that feels nice,” while also provocatively sounding our, “ohhhh, awwwww, ooooooooo, yummmmmmmmm, ohhhhhhhh, awww, ahhhhhhhhh, ummmmmm, oooooo, awwww, yesssssssssssss,” preparing ourselves for the day with:

La Roche-Posay Face SPF 45because, non-greasy SPF. And because, skin cancer = um, no. 
Bain de Soleil Orange Gelèe – because, Brock’s mom uses this and Brock’s mom / moms ALWAYS know best. And because, we still want to get tan. Like, Lindsay Lohan tan. 
Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom
because it’s like summer on your lips + it’s nice for sharing, if you get what we mean 😉 get itttttttt.
Glossier Soothing Face Mistbecause, rose water, enough said.
Round sunglasses –
because, ALWAYS.
Our newest swimwear obsession, Mackeene –
because, a French brand + colorful trunks = summertime yummertime.
