For 2006

I'm cleaning out our home, a tradition of mine for New Year's. I like to go into the new calendar with the house not just clean, but streamlined.

The second drawer on my dresser contains hosiery and swimwear. I have three suits, two of which I really like. I could get rid of a swimsuit. But not two. I must have more than one in case I swim twice in the same day.

There's no such thing as only slightly wet when it comes to putting on a swimsuit. In fact, there are only two possible descriptions: completely dry, upon which I insist, and

Unpleasantly damp: clammy.

My mother never owned "swimsuits". She always referred to them as "bathing suits", which term I also use from time to time.
