wearing nothing but a smile

I was a young rounder at the time, and I took a date to the beach at Tybee to watch a meteor shower. The meteor shower wasn't what the forecasters predicted, and we became bored, sitting in the sand dunes and swatting mosquitos. I decided to go swimming.

I shucked my clothes and ran nekkid into the sea. The water felt good. The night was moonless and nobody else was on the beach. My date was appalled at first, and I still remember her standing on the beach asking me what in the hell I thought I was doing. "I'm swimming," I replied. "Why don't you join me?"

A street light way back on Butler Avenue cast her in perfect silouette. "I don't have a bathing suit," she said.

I replied, "Sure you do. You can wear the same thing I'm wearing."

"You're not wearing ANYTHING!"

"Yeah. So what? That can be YOUR bathing suit, too."

I didn't believe that she would do it. I was amazed when I saw her look around for casual observers, find none, and strip off all her clothes. She stood there nekkid for a moment and asked me if the water was cold. I told her that the water was PERFECT.

She came in wearing nothing but a smile. That was better than ANY meteor shower I ever saw.


Water's perfect hun? That reminds me of a monologue by Shelly Berman where the same question came up when he was diving in head first. With perfect form he executed a swan dive. When his finger tips touched the water he herad the shout of the question. By the time the water had reached his second knuckle he was thinking "Why should I tell her?"

I always wondered why the ocean smelled fishy.

Okay, now you gotta post a picture of you as a young hottie so we can see how these women were so becharmed.

Cythen, I'm STILL a hottie. Just a little older, that's all.
