No, I’m not talking about the World Wide Wrestling Championships.
The reason for the above disclaimer, is because strangers assumed that was what the ‘WWWC X’ on the back of our beach cover-ups meant. Look at us. We are sun worshipers and ladies of good reputation. Some of us are in great shape, but come on! Do we look like wrestlers? Was it because our cover-ups all matched? (Thanks again Eddie, Maker of Fabulous Event Shirts)
The WWWC that I’m talking about is Woman’s Weekend Without Children. Our kids called it Wild Women’s Weekend Camp-out. How did they know?! This year my BFF reserved a lakefront cabin at one of Missouri’s finer resorts.
This place, inhabited by women only, will feel like paradise. Offspring are left at home with daddy’s and grandpa’s. Only in-utero children are allowed. And absolutely NO MEN. Not even male drive-byes or twilight visits. Four glorious days of doing whatever we want, whenever we want. Taking care of only ourselves. No compromises with other family members. A long weekend devoid of “Mommy!” and “MOMMMMMMM!” Devoid of “Honey, where’s the ___?” or “What have you done with my _?”
I am ecstatic that I’m (finally) able to get to WWWC this year. It has been over 10-years, which is WAY, WAY too long. I have missed so much that I won’t “get” most of the private jokes and past references. I hate that.
If you are a woman reading this, and are not sitting on the edge of your seat, anxious to hear more, then you must be single. Single women are rarely invited because they already have a WWWC lifestyle, and are not able to truly appreciate the perks. Or understand where any of us are coming from. Well, same to you, Sister.
Meals at WWWC are whatever I bring to eat. And, the best part is that I don’t have to consider anyone else’s aversion to beans, fear of green food, or picking mushrooms out of anything that has them in it. The thought crosses my mind to make bean, spinach and mushroom soup, thankfully, it passes quickly. I can cook (and eat!) fish without listening to “Eww!” or “Gross!!” I can be lazy and plan already made meals like deli-wraps and packaged salads.
When I’m finished eating, I wash up my place setting and put away any leftovers. Another gal takes my seat at the table and enjoys her meal while chatting with table-mates that come and go.
And guess what?? Nobody cleans up after anyone else – because it isn’t necessary.
What a concept!
I hope I’m not pushing the secrecy rule by using WWWC X photos for this post. I use them only because we all Look. So. Damn. Hot. Who doesn’t want to be seen looking hot?
I normally give credit to my photographer(s), however, for the life of me I can’t remember who took the pix.
I must have finished that thermos of martinis before the photo-op…
