The Line of the Week
Sun dresses, bikinis, BBQ’s, and booze. Swim holes, beautiful babes and festivals too. Hiking, paddling, biking, and climbing all around. Festivals, flip-flops, fine weather can be found. It’s all in the past this Tahoe summer, gone like those tan lines ain’t it a bummer?
The last days of our beautiful summer have fallen by the wayside. All we can do now is think back to those perfect days of Tahoe, short and sweet just like bikini season. This week’s line of the week is an ode to the tan line. When the first flakes of winter have fallen you won’t even remember what a sizzlin’ full body tan looked like. All you will know are burned faces that end at the neck and if you’re lucky the arms of a farmer’s tan. Really, is anything hotter than a chick with a charred Cali face and raccoon eyes in KT line? This is a question to all you out there…Does anyone prefer a coon eyed tan to a bikini tan?
It won’t be long until your entire body resembles this girl’s whiter areas. I know, just as sad as you are I feel the same way. It won’t be long until the darkest you get resembles my white thighs. Maybe I should have included a photo of that.
Me, I love summer. I cherish the short fine moments in life. I cherish the tan lines, the short shorts and the floral dresses. I cherish the ladies who have no problems with a guy like me taking photos of their lines simply because just like skiing straight down The Nose and off The Fingers their lines are the finest Tahoe has to offer.
It’s time to bust out your flannels and socks, time for hot cocoa not whiskey on the rocks. It’s time to wax up your skis and let your leg hair grow long and if you’re a stoner take a hit from your bong. Let your skin get pasty and void of the sun. Go for a bike ride or a climb or a run. Light yourself a fire and cuddle with your girl. Prepare for another long winter that will rock your world.
