take me there

Later this spring my siblings and I will be venturing to Australia to visit Sam. He's already been sending us descriptions of the warm sun, his instant base-tan, and the ocean that's just two blocks away. I was excited to begin with, but now I'm beyond antsy. Would it be inappropriate to start packing now?

Although the plane ticket hurt upon purchase, it didn't take long for me to begin wondering if I'll need a new wardrobe for the trip. For some reason the beach bums he's been describing don't strike me as preppy, cardi-wearing types. I'm dreaming of a wavy hair and sandal-clad week, sans straightener.
