Skinny Dipping

There's a place in Martindale, Texas that is prime for skinny dipping on hot summer nights. It's a dam next to an old mill and the spring fed river stays at a constant 72 degrees throughout the year. My favorite night in college was spent at that dam. The only thing illuminating our wet, naked bodies was the moon - which makes the human form look better than any candlelight. It was 2am. I was a little buzzed - I know, not the smartest thing to do. When I jumped, I could have sworn someone had reached in mid-jump and replaced the water will cold silk. The water felt smooth and refreshing over every inch of my body. There were about 10 of us. I had just met Kyle and felt that spark. I had a boyfriend so nothing happened, but there is something to be said for that longing. Sometimes the passionate frustration is more exciting than the actual touch. When I got out, I fumbled with my bra for a good five minutes before he offered me his shirt - a plaid pearl snap that hugged me just right. After that, we all decided to go play in a park, swing on the swings, jump on the bridge. We made breakfast just as the sun was rising. Perfect, perfect night. I can't wait for summertime.

I love skinny dipping! Which is funny, cause I'm actually quite reserved otherwise (in clothing).

It's my little secret.

Reminds me of a pond up in the hills that my crowd used to frequent. You either had to have a horse, hike, or Jeep it up there, but it was sure fun. We nick-named it "Little Buddy Lake". It was at 8,500 feet and usually had snow feeding into it. Now you can see why our buddies were little. Not a good place to impress women.

You did a great job describing this experience, Crystal. Makes me want to try it out.

Well Crystal, the cute boy liked you, so I missed out for a dumb reason. Besides, I was too much of a chunker at that point, so you are probably much better off this way. ;)

Alright, cat juggling it is, but I'll need a lovely assistant. Got anything sparkly to wear?

Everyone else: Yes, it's your daily dose of "WTF?" provided by The Grunt.
