If Loving You Is Thong, I Don't Want To Be Right

Sure, wait until the end of my holiday before bringing out the big guns.

There I was Sunday, minding my own business, sitting on the balcony of my brother-in-law's Panama condo looking out over the infinity pools and ocean ruminating about what I enjoyed best about my two week trip to Panama.

Was it the 100+ degree temperatures?

Not exactly.

Was it the great meals we had on our trips out to various restaurants?

Not exactly.

Was it the ability to play golf every day?

Not exactly.

Was it the gorgeous beach?

Not exactly.

Was it the fantastic sunrises?

Not exactly.

Was it the zoo in the fertile - and cooler - volcanic valley of El Valle?


Well what was it then?

Well, over beside the pool - and at the risk of appearing to be an old lecherous coot, which I may well be  - it was the discovery of young women in thongs. That's right, thongs. I'd seen pictures before but I've never seen them in their natural habitat. Hey, I've led a sheltered life. What can I say?

And these women - well I say women, but I think they were girls...I didn't want to get too close for fear they might run away and I might get arrested - were, um, 'wearing it well' you might say.

Ha, who knew? Yeah, who knew I was so damn old. I must have been living under a rock for the last 40 years. When did they invent the thong, anyway? Well, according to Wikipedia the modern thong was invented in 1974. And it's taken me this long to actually see one in it's natural habitat. I gotta get out more.

I was so impressed by how these thong bikinis looked on these women I went and got one myself.

You know, I head home tomorrow.

And I really have to say (because I know you expect it of me) I'm really going to be sorry to leave Panama behind.

My girl, Flavia is from Brazil. She and her mama both rock the thong. All the women in Brazil do I gather. It can be a pretty stunning look on the right people. You can wear one, but I find the string up my butt annoying.

Brazil would appear to be the world capital of the thong. I agree with the string up the butt thing, but I'm so wearing it well don't you think?

Erm Dufus... well... uh... in the words of Rod Stewart... you wear it well!

nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Quirks. I was worried I'd make a complete ass of myself. Butt obviously I was wrong.
Nicky said…
Well, Dufus, after all the time we've known each other, I must say, this is a side of you I've never seen before. And, no offense, but hopefully I'll never see it again. :-)
nonamedufus said…
Well, Nicky, I'll just have to turn the other cheek... ( | )

I saw my first thong in the mid-80s. I liked it, too. Or the woman wearing it. I haven't seen one since, though. Pity.
nonamedufus said…
I wonder if that speaks to the popularity of the thong, or of the women who can wear one?

I like mine. I may never need toilet paper again.

Is this the latest Pause Ponder and Pun photo?
Ziva said…
That thong looks fantastic on you, Dufus, you have buns of steel.
meleahrebeccah said…
that last photo is friggen PRICELESS! Ahahahahhahah!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it could be. I might call it Pause Ponder and Buns.
nonamedufus said…
Why thank you Ziva. My working out is starting to reap benefits...and stares.
nonamedufus said…
I thought it was a great way to "end" the post, Meleah.

I was in Puerto Rico the first time I saw one. It blew me away. Can she do that?
nonamedufus said…
What? What? What did she do?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
