Naked Volleyball - I'd say that was a NSV

Let me preface this with I've never skinny dipped EVER.. not because I'm a prude but because I never really thought about it or thought I had opportunity. I do remember this one time when I was a teen and there were a bunch of us at the lake and everyone was going under the water to kiss one another. I heard the term "skinny dipping" but had NO IDEA what they were talking about. I think I thought it meant that they were skinny people taking a dip in the lake or something like that. Aah, gotta love being young and naive.

So I'm with my best friend, trust her with my life, she's seen my who-haa one time or another, I've seen her boobs (I mean she has FOUR kids) AND who-haa...my point being we don't embarrass easily in front of one another. For the events that happened this evening, I blame her. She brought it up... this subject of skinny dipping. We were bumping the ball around and she was amazed (I guess because I'm a superfreak) that I had never done such a thing. She had explained how (I think the word she used was 'liberating') it was, etc. So I said, ok, I'm in. She wanted to wait until the hubby went to meet his girlfriends (not really girls.. just guys he talks to as much as girls talk w/ girls). He left and off came my bottoms first. And can I say WOW. After all my giggles subsided - I mean, come on.. I just got half naked in a big bathtub (pool) with my best friend which is not an everyday occurance for me - then I really started enjoying it. I think I mentioned wanting my top off and before you know it... I was completely naked. We BOTH were. And YES I looked. I'm only human.. and she did too. She kept hitting the volleyball onto the deck so I'd have to get out of the pool. I think she just wanted to get a glimpse of the girls. Just kidding Mel, I know you're reading. Swam around, floated some.. got some exercise in... a good night!

I'm VERY tired right now.. my eyes are burning but that may be from the chlorine. :) What an experience though and I'm on track this week... I'm already eating A LOT better than I've been and even though I've used some flex points, I'm still doing okay. Can't wait for Saturday when I'll be in NYC walking around ALL DAY long. I'm bound to earn some serious activity points! Yay!

Hope ya'll have a great day today. For those of you that commented, thanks for your well wishes. They mean a lot. You guys are the best. If I don't get back on this weekend, have a great one!

HA HA HA!!! Didn't realize you'd be quite so explicit in your blog... oh who am I kidding, yes I did. Sheesh, is nothing sacred anymore?? A couple of girls can't strip down and have a nice clean game of volleyball without the world reading about it?!

I've never been skinny dipping because I AM a prude - but I'm a closet nudist at home. :o)

Big Kudos to you for having the guts to let it all hang out! ;o)
