Tuesday, September 25, 2007 :::
I stayed over at a friend's cabin the other weekend. I'm not exactly a fan of being out-of-doors or of taking my shirt off in public, but sometimes it's just nice to get out of the city and relax on a boat.
My friends were kind enough to let me sleep in their mother's bedroom that evening, so in the morning I used her master bathroom to clean myself up and take a shower. Unfortunately, I had neglected to bring any soap or shampoo along with me. I'm never quite sure of the proper etiquette in that sort of situation: do I just rinse off and hope that water alone is good enough to wash away the smells of the previous day in the wilderness, or do I sneak a little of the host's soap and shampoo for a good a proper cleaning?
I decided that I would sneak a little body wash. It looked kinda fancy and probably expensive, but it's not like anyone would ever notice one day's worth of soap missing from a huge bottle of bodywash, right?
A few hours later I found myself lounging in the sunshine on a boat deck. The heat was considerable, so I worked up the courage to remove my shirt and allow my porcelain white skin to absorb some sun. As I lie basking, I heard my friend ask:
"Um, why are you all sparkly?"
I looked down to see that I was covered in glitter, head to toe. Apparently, my friend's mother's bodywash was even fancier than I thought. I was a bodywash thief, and there was no hiding it. I eventually had to come clean, as it were. If I believed in that sort of stuff, I would say that the karma gods had a hearty laugh at my expense that day.
Yes, there are pictures of my glittery body, but due to my poor body image I'm only going to show you a small snippet of my sparkly skin:
Somehow the cropped image is even more disturbing than the original. Sometimes a little skin is worse than a lot of skin. Oh well. Sorry for that.

The kharma gods & I had a hearty laugh at this one. That's really freakin' funny. And, I like the skin shot, just a peek of nipple showing there. How titilating!

A friend of mine had this exact scenario happen to her, but it was just prior to a gynecological exam and what she thought was feminine hygiene spray was actually glitter spray. The doc said "ooo pretty" or something along those lines and completely freaked her out.

Wow. I'm sure they appreciated you washing off rather than just rinsing in plain water even if it meant you had to steal their mom's bodywash...

I would have far rather have seen the full picture; I can't quite imagine the full effect of having a the entire upper body of a man be all sparkly.
Why does your blog always incite the strangest of curiosities in me? Curiosities that verge on the level of peverted, but never quite there.. .
