Why Can’t Life Be Like Beach Blanket Bingo?

It was a long, grueling day at the office today.  As I walked to my car afterward, the sun hanging low in the sky, I noticed a bunch of swimsuit-wearing young people throw down blankets and start twisting furiously, while Frankie and Annette gave each other a split-second, soulless, sexless kiss, a chorus sang of “lads” and “lassies,” a girl wasted a perfectly good ice cream cone on a “fresh” guy’s mug, and a dude named Moondoggy wore a curious hat.

Well, okay, that didn’t happen — but wouldn’t it be something if just once life were like Beach Blanket Bingo?

      • I recall a can of Aqua Net (there was better stuff that came along later but I can’t remember the brand.) lurking somewhere in the recesses of the vanity and not wanting to get my hair wet at the beach.

    • Melanie, what substance do you suppose was applied to achieve that degree of strand-specific ultrahold? Lacquer? Some form of epoxy?

      • Lol yeah I don’t think Aquanet hairspray would be strong enough. I say epoxy resin for the hold and lacquer for the shine 🙂
