Mel’s Show and Tell – The Beach Version

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:02pm

Welcome to Show and Tell here at May the Road Rise! To see what others are showing, click here.

For today’s edition,  I thought I’d take a little break from the world of IF to take a trip to the beach – Riviera Maya in Mexico to be exact.  This picture was taken on LG’s and my first big trip together as a couple.  We had taken one weekend jaunt, but this was the first time we were going away for a week with no quick escape if things turned rocky or we ran out of things to say to one another.  We ended up having an incredible time, so now this place holds a special place in our heart and is the front runner for our consolation prize vacation should that be warranted.

When I originally took the picture, I was trying to capture the pelican you see on the right about to take flight. pier-and-pelican   What I hadn’t expected to record for posterity is what I am convinced was an aging p.orn star.  You can see him there under the gazebo gazing out on the ocean.

Every morning, he would arrive at the beach in style wearing a shocking (and I mean SHOCKING) neon green s.peedo that was at least 1 size too small.  He would spend a good 10 minutes angling his beach chair just right to ensure maximum sun rays.  Once this feat was accomplished, this woman who seemed to be accompanying him (although LG and I could never figure out their relationship despite much discussion), would rub him all over with tanning oil.  After her ministrations were complete, she would move her chair several feet away…you seriously would not even know they were together had you not just seen her rub him down..eeww…only to get up when he needed a re-application.

Here’s the part that never fails to crack me up.  Every so often, he would get up as if he was going to head out into the ocean but then he would take a moment to “stretch.”  And by stretch, I mean he would strike these weird almost-bodybuilding-type poses (but not quite) designed to show off to everyone his all musceley tan physique.  While doing so, he would glance around (in a manner I’m sure he thought was subtle…totally wasn’t) to see who was noticing.  He seemed completed oblivious to the wave of giggles spreading across the beach front.  (Now, normally, I would feel very badly for a person in this situation as I don’t like to see people laughed at, but in this case, the guy was being a tool…) 

When I took the picture, somehow I missed him in the shot, so when I developed the pictures, LG and I had quite a laugh remembering his performance.   I’m really hoping we don’t end up going back there – at least any time soon because that would mean this round of IVF didn’t work – but if we do, I will keep my eyes out for past-their-prime ad.ult en.tertainment stars and duly report back.
