Come On In!

Well, apparently, I never got the memo that announced the new meaning of a closed door to be, “COME ON IN!”  I’m telling you what, every time I try to close a door for privacy, whether it be the bathroom, bedroom or even closet, somebody comes barging right in. Take yesterday, for example.  My kids had a little friend over to play after school, and I thought I could run upstairs and take a super quick shower since I was still in my sweat-drenched workout clothes.  The kids were playing Legos so nicely — why couldn’t I just jump in and jump out?  I decided to lock the door just in case, but I really didn’t expect anyone to come looking for me.  They were completely enthralled with the Legos, right?  Well, who was I kidding? This is me we’re talking about!  As soon as I got all lathered up, I heard little footsteps getting closer and closer.  As I was about to shout not to come in, the bathroom door was whipped open, and there stood my son and his little friend and me in all my naked glory.  Sweet, I can just hear it now when the little friend got home: “Daddy, I watched my friend’s mommy take a shower today.”  Well, so much for that — lesson learned:  no more showers during playdates, and get the damn lock fixed on the bathroom door!

    I probably saw my best friends mother naked at least 50 times back when I was a teen? But at least I’m female, and she chose be naked in front of others, it wasn’t an accident like what happened to you.

    My friends parents got divorced when my friend was little. It was just the two of them in the house, and apparently her mother grew accustomed to walking around the house naked?

    There were countless occasions that my friend and I would be watching TV at her house and her mother would walk naked into the kitchen to get something to drink. And my friends mother knew my mother a little bit back when they were in high school, and sometimes my friends mother would see me and start asking me how my mother was, or she might ask me how school was going, all while standing there naked.

    There were times that I’d run into my friends mother in the ladies locker room at the Y, she’d stand there naked chatting it up with me and some of my other friends. I may have seen her naked more times than I ever saw my own mother naked?

      That is just all kinds of creepy! I don’t know how you could keep a straight face while she was standing there in the buff carrying on a conversation! Kudos to you for having the strength to do that cause I don’t know if I could! Thanks for sharing!

    The first couple of times that my friends mom struck up a conversation with me while she was naked it was pretty shocking to me, but after that I was totally used to it and didn’t give it a whole lot of thought. My friend took after her mom. We had gym class together in high school, and my friend used to walk around naked in the girls locker room like it was no big deal. There are ladies like that at my gym, some of them just love to stand around in the buff and chat with each other.

      Guess the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, huh?! I actually wrote a post a while back about those women at the gym who prance around in their birthday suits — it was called “I Am Not A Looky-Loo” if you want to look it up on my blog. Gives me the willies when those women are just standing there buck naked carrying on a lengthy conversation with each other. But, I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go round….

    LOL…only to you! With any luck that kid will remember that when he is 12 or 13. And he’ll want to come over to your house all the time…o know that’s not what you want, but as a reader, Im always wondering what curve ball the universe will throw you next! 🙂

      Funny thing is that the kid made sure to tell his babysitter to tell me hi for him every time she saw me for the next few weeks after that. Needless to say, I won’t be showering anymore while my kids’ friends are over — no more peep shows for me! 😉
