Every once in awhile I must stray from my more tame autobiographical account of my family life and go on a rant. Today's rant has a spiritual angle so you can feel uplifted while I vent.
In Genesis 3:10 Adam and Eve admit to hiding from the Lord and are embarrassed of their nakedness. I know we are lots of generations away from Adam and Eve, but why are some of us more embarrassed by our nakedness than others? This came to me while in a very long line at WalMart. I typically have lots of time to think deep thoughts at WalMart since the lines are always long. I probably could have solved the energy crisis and invented a new nuclear weapon with all the time I had yesterday, but I was having to clean up as Noelle destroyed the magazine rack. But a couple of people ahead of me was the most ghastly sight I have seen in awhile. A woman in a mesh halter top. The back was completely bare. The front had a lining over the important parts, but the rest was mesh. Mesh, I tell you! I thought mesh was only reserved for tents these days. Unfortunately for all of us in WalMart yesterday, I was wrong.
This bothered me on two counts. I had my boys with me and I don't like them to see half-naked women. My other issue is just one of social propriety. A grocery store is not a proper environment to wear your lingerie. I don't care if you are a size 22 or a 2, please cover your body in a public enclosed place! Do what you want in your yard or even on a hiking trail. But have some respect for the rest of us.
Maybe since a WalMart Supercenter carries everything else, this woman could have bought a 'coat of skins' to cover herself up in. She really wasn't wearing much more than fig leaves in the first place, but if God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden in skins it's good enough for me.
That is all. You don't have to read your scriptures today and please retire all mesh clothing items. Thank you.
