Beach Etiquette Tips for Those of You Who Go There

I'd rather die than lie on a beach, where the sand, sun, and people making fun of my body would surely kill me anyway.

But for braver folk who find that sort of thing a wildly pleasurable experience, here are Susan Blond's handy tips for the beach behavior that will make the most of your day in the sun.

Most important are the suggestions about making a dramatic exit from the water; putting your head in a bag when you use the phone (or, heck, even when you don't); and making sure to read a really good book so people will approach you for conversation.

But don't make it THAT good, seeing as you're going to be interrupted every two minutes.

Oh, and make sure your sun block matches your handbag!
