Pop-A-Lock to the Rescue!

The Big Monkey and I are going on a cruise soon (yes, I am super psyched), so tonight I decided to go looking for a new bathing suit. Well, I'll tell you that it gets old quickly being laughed at everytime you ask a clerk in November, "Do you still carry bathing suits?" Needless to say, after scouring the mall, Marshall's and TJ Maxx, I never found one. But, I digress...
So, I walk out of Marshall's to find the flat tire you see above. I am definitely not one of those girls who is going to whip out the jack and start changing a tire, so I call The Big Monkey, who calls our insurance company who calls Pop-A-Lock. Well, I have to tell you, I am seriously impressed. Chris from Pop-A-Lock was not only at my car within 10 minutes, but he was truly the cutest thing you ever did see! He had the spare tire installed in 10 more minutes and I was on my way.
But, sadly, still no bathing suit.

You need to stop calling your husband and son monkeys, how would you like it if they called you an elephant?

Oh my Random Pop-A-Lock Cuteness! Gotta love that. Sorry about bathing suit sparseness - maybe a specialty store or *gulp* online ?? (no, I did NOT seriously suggest you buy a suit online...)
Oh, and anonymous must be one of those GEICO cavemen. Just sayin...

Maybe your best bet would be to buy from the internet...I would probably get laughed at around here for asking too. He is a cutie!

WOW! Cute and good service! I'll have to remember Pop-a-lock! Sorry you found no swim suits though.

Try Title 9 Sports (Google them). They have awesome suits.

Bummer about the tire... no one needs that aggravation.

I call the men in my life monkey, it's a term of endearment here. People are weird.

I find it hard to believe that in New Orleans they don't have any bathing suits in stock! You guys are WAY warmer than we are, and they should at least have some for the tourists that wanna swim in the hotel pools but forgot theirs because it's -3000 degrees at home. (can you tell I'm already tired of the cold?)

Good luck finding one! And I hope you enjoy the heck out of your cruise! And if someone that cute showed up to fix my flat tires, I might be prone to driving over nails and glass ;)
