Makes Me Happy Monday : Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition is an act or instance of placing close together or side by side,
especially for comparison or contrast.
I love a clever play on words. Puns, riddles and rhymes all intrigue me.
And sometimes they use a juxtaposition.
The “twist” at the end of each is always so much fun!
As much as I enjoy a mental twist,
I love a visual turn-around, as well!
Thus my c.o.m.p.l.e.t.e adoration for these bathing suits!!
The girls wearing these suits are the daughters of our neighborhood swim team coach. It only makes sense that kids that spend nearly as much time IN or AROUND water would have awe.some FUN bathing suits.
At a distance, you might not pay attention to the pattern on the fabric, but a second glance brings a smile. In the sweltering heat of July, just the THOUGHT of snowmen and Christmas trees soothes and cools the mind.
The girls tell me that the third sister has a suit with witches and black cats – another suit with a theme from a cooler time of the year.
What fun! Chilly patterns on bathing suits worn during steamy, hot summers!  I LOVE the juxtaposition!
As the summer comes to a close and we spend our last day at the neighborhood pool hanging out with friends, soaking in some rays and making Vitamin D, I’m thankful for wonderful things like juxtapositions of words and sights.
How about you?  What makes YOU happy this marvelous Monday morning?
