Brazil nuts are such a gorgeous nut and worthy of high accolades in nutrition! I wonder if those beautiful Brazilian girls eat them! Ha, thinking out loud! I have a story for you about those “itsy bitsy, teeny weeny” Brazilian bikinis.
My conservative, cautious, perfectionist, logical, unassuming husband had a hand in bringing that swim suit to the States! Well, he likes to think that, but really he promises the facts show he is logically right (sigh, he usually is). Although, he doesn’t boast of this and was not so keen on my “telling” post.
The short story is…..he was visiting Brazil in 1985 and snapped a Brazilian beauty on the beach wearing one of those itsy, bitsy suits. It was a great picture, I do admit. Anyhow, my man (before he was my man) decided to make posters from this picture and sell them to stores in all the hottest places for spring break back in the states; like Daytona Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. Don’t you know, every girl wanted to buy that suit, but not the poster so much.
Unfortunately, his hopes to help pay his school loans off with the money he earned turned into a business venture of great lessons only. Truth be told, I think it very noble of a young man wanting to be responsible and pay off his school loans! Too bad he didn’t know a good seamstress or someone who could cut string, as that is really all they are. Because you know, his fate might look a whole lot different today. Thank goodness because we might not have this delicious creamy milk recipe, and who knows what I would be up to.
With a Glassful of Health,
