Creeping Naked

Wearing clothes to bed simply makes no sense I must float freely on my waterbed But when I wake in the morning, I’m tense Wrinkles from the sheets on my skin imbed Rolling out of bed, I lower my head All of my windows and blinds are open Crawling, I fear neighbors might see butt skin A snake, I slither in my birthday suit Trying to avoid boob sighting again And the tattoo that sits on my “patoot” I made a mistake reaching for my robe The rack fell down hard, landing on me Here I lay thinking my world’s out of whack I struggle but there’s no way to get free My Life Alert bracelet rang out quickly No success grabbing a sheet from the bed The rescuers arrived in warp-speed time To find a nude lady well past her prime Face down, the tattoo was now in full view Explaining what happened, I’d quite a time

    Belated congrats on your win in my contest. When I read this I both cringed and laughed and felt sorry for the tatooed lady. Thanks again. Cyndi

    Well, Carolyn, reading your comments on people's comments, I see you really enjoy going to bed nude. All good. Your exposé (uh, pardon the pun, hehe) was well written with feeling. Sleeping naked would be rather refreshing, so, you might wanna try what I do. Naturally, though, my shades are down, curtains closed. After a good night's rest, upon waking, a glorious orchestra fills my head and bedroom. Then I spring out of bed, twirling, then from the top of my lungs, I bellow, "The hills are alive with the sound of la la" Then its off to start my day. Eh, of course you can use any uplifting chorus. I'm more of a 'beating of the chest', "Tarzan yell" man, myself. Hehe

    Actually, most of this is not fictional. Only the rescue attempt was fiction. Every morning I slither around looking for clothes and hoping the neighbors can't see me.

    Is this a true story? I sure hope not! how embarassing! But a very creative take on the contest. Enjoyed :)
