-Have you ever worn a bikini?
I answered that I never bought one. We went through that last winter of our twenties, and H expressed her regret that we had never worn bikinis in our twenties and now we're about to welcome our thirties. Is the feeling really so different between twenties bikinis and thirties bikinis, when we just changed the number in front of our age? Are bikinis more than just swimwear that beautifully covers the critical areas that allow birth for women like us? Actually I don't like swimming at all and even if I got my own bikini and wore it, I knew that I wouldn't just go to the water and soak my whole body. In that condition, the existense of this bikini was in my mind unfamiliar once again, and that unfamiliar feeling, just ridiculously convinced me to make the beginning of our thirties into a very special year, when it wasn't special anymore at the ends of our twenties. Like a primary effect, sometimes people are caught up in a peculiar thing that just entered their lives. Anyhow, H and I went on a bikini trip on new year's eve. In midwinter, the cold wind hitting our face in Nami island, two single women just took all kind of woes of the future off and wore something new for the very first time in their lifetime.
