Some of my friends think I’m weird. I don’t see it that way. Here’s the deal…
I enjoy nude sun bathing in public, but I don’t enjoy being nude in public.
Confused? Apparently so are my friends. Let me try to explain. When I want to work on my tan or just enjoy the sunshine on my naked body because it feels so good, I have no issue with stripping down and going somewhere to layout. If I’m meeting other friends to lay out, I don’t have a problem with walking across campus naked. I mean, I’m going to be nude in the sun soon enough anyway.
But the thought of walking across campus naked to meet them for a movie or a cup of coffee or scoop of ice cream? No way am I going nude! That just isn’t right.
They don’t get it. To them, either reason, I’m walking across campus naked. To me, there’s a huge difference. One has a purpose of being nude. It is normal to be nude when nude sunbathing. So of course, I’d be nude going to nude sun bathing with my nude sun bathing friends. Makes perfect sense to me.
But nude coffee drinking? Now you are just walking around nude for no other reason than to nude. It is not normal to drink coffee or eat ice cream nude in public places.
One of my friends called me to come over and join her for a shower. Knowing how much easier it is to wash your hair and back with a friend helping, I gladly agreed. And of course, I arrived carrying a clean towel ready to shower. Makes no sense to shower other than nude right? But when she suggested we get something at the Student Union cafe, I insisted on going back to my dorm room to put something on. I was not going to sit at the cafe with just a towel wrapping my wet hair. And it made no difference that I had walk right pass the cafe on my way back to my dorm.
I don’t see why they don’t get it. There are perfectly good times when you’ll be nude in public places, but that does not mean you ought to be naked other times. Just because I am quite willing to be the one naked walking across campus to sun bathe or shower does not mean I’m willing to be naked walking across campus to do other things.
Tell me, am I being weird, or are they for thinking nude is nude. I think nude with a purpose is different than nude for no good reason.
