I think that everyone will agree that the minute one even so much as takes off their shoes and sits down, the phone rings, the door bell sounds, a utility truck pulls up, and a FedEx package arrives. Your mom is calling on the phone, a kid is at the door selling candy bars, the utility people are upgrading something and will be turning something off for an hour, and FedEx is delivering a replacement that you have been waiting on for months.
I hate to walk back to the bedroom "moist"...hahahaha.

Ours was in the basement. My mother was down there one day, doing the laundry, and decided to take off her housecoat and throw it in the washer.
She got caught by the meter reader...LOL!

Vera, my husband and I are big fans of naked...it's been great, since the boy left home.

Isn't it wonderful?!!!!

If I lived somewhere warm I'm sure I would find a nudist colony to live in. Clothes are a pita in my opinion.

My most memorable experience was when I was about 20 and lived in a high rise apartment in downtown Calgary. I lived across from the Suncor building. One hot summer day I came home from work and stripped off all my sticky office clothes, took a shower and didn't bother to get dressed. I puttered about having some dinner, and then decided to vacuum. I cranked my stereo and started rocking out while I vacuumed. As I went, I got that feeling...you know...the one where someone is watching you? I looked up through my balcony doors, across the street into the Suncor building. A lovely gentleman gave me smile and little finger wave from across the street. Oops.
It was the vacuum's fault. It's always the vacuum....

One fine day she was to bring a text book that we were sharing by my house. She arrived at the appointed hour only to find me in my bedroom asleep, Totally/completely naked, except for a baseball cap and sunglasses When I awoke, to my complete shock and surprise the text book lay at the foot of my bed. She had departed the premisies without waking me. The next day after class we went to our favorite bench. This being the first time we had had a chance to discuss this "nude encounter" I was prepared to offer her my deepest apologies...before I could speak..she offered a proposal of marriage to which I happily accepted.

Those must have been some sunglasses, my dear!

When I was 10 or 11 my family moved to the country, but, next door to this property was a good sized mound with Austrailian Pines trees dividing our property and the 10 acres next door, unknown to my folks, it was a nudist colony. One day I was cooling my horse out and walking down my driveway and I looked to my right and OH MY there were about 15 naked older men! One was working on his car (it was August, the sun was shining and the car had lots of chrome) and I thought to myself wow that guy sure is brave, one wrong wiggle and OUCH. As I have gotten older, and being I live in the country still, I have learned to enjoy a few emporer moments. (I just don't work on my car)

I'm about to move into the back of beyond and am really looking forward to being able to wander around with no clothes on. It's been impossible over the last few years (we live in a ground floor flat with lots of windows - more window than wall in fact!). Even the bathroom is pretty exposed - as I noticed when I spotted next door's gardener clipping back a plant more than strictly required because he wasn't paying attention to what he was doing...

Oh yikes, I realy am royalty then. I am a big fan of the Emporer look! Inside housework in my house almost always gets done in underwear at the most because I nip about and almost work out and it is much easier to do it like that. I got caught out when I was a teenager. Our isolation stables were at the end of our garden and some distance from the rest of our stables, and a horse arrived with ringworm and needed box rest, so a sacrifical pony and the mare were put in these two, infrequently used stables. I sleep in the altogether but put pjs or tracksuits on for yard work in the morning, and other outside housework!, mainly because they wash and dry very quickly so I can use a set aday, then shower and get into my proper clothes, but I muck out really really quickly, and like with my bhousework, work up a sweat, so I often wear my pj bottoms and my under clothes on top (the pj top comes off when I get hot). I did not realise how overlooked those two stables where, being used to the realtive privacy of the rest of the yard. My mother heard an arguement between the next door neighbour when she found him very interested in my morning routine! My mother bought me lots of crop tops after that LOL.

I was brought up very comfortable with my own skin, as my parents made an effort to get past barriers they felt they had there....it worked too well!
