Ever Dance Naked in the Pale Moonlight?

Filed under: Adventures — by InterstellarLass @ 1:11 pm

There’s a certain thrill in danger; in doing something outside of the expected. Some people can push that limit, test the boundaries, slip into the wild side.

I’m usually a spectator to those people. A thousand times I’ve thought of a response to someone’s comment but didn’t dare say it. I’ve been tempted to stand up in the middle of a restaurant and yell, just to see how people reacted. A part of me wants to do the unexpected so that people can never take me for granted.

Most people mellow with age. That youthful desire for going beyond limits leaves them and they grow comfortable with routine and conformity. I think I’m experiencing the opposite. My mom ingrained in me: Do the right thing. Don’t let other people down. Do what’s expected of you at all times. Don’t disturb the waters. And I always tried to. And I was always so disappointed in myself if I let others down or chose the unexpected.

And now, I think I’m becoming more daring. How so you ask? The other night, Nick and I were on the front porch, talking. It was dark. Very late. Our street is very quiet after dark. I’d had a couple of beers. The liquid courage combined with something inside me, and I did it.

I took off my shirt. And my pants. And my bra. And I danced in my front yard. Under the moon. Yes, I did. And I felt free.


  1. holy smokes, you ROCK! I’ve got to try that!!
    It’s gonna take a lot of beers first tho.

    Now the big Q, DID Nick do it too??!! LOL

  5. You ROCK. How cool is that?

    (Me, I’m afraid to even go outside after dark, for fear a mosquito will carry me off to its lair)

  11. OK, you KNOW I’m not a prude, but I have a “Hate thy Nieghbor” thing.

    I seriously would have told the Homeowners Association on you! AFTER I took pics and posted them on my blog!

  13. Unleash those baps and set them free!

    Would love to do that but I might give my homeless guy man who sits in my stairwell a heart attack!!! and the rest of the neighbourhood.

    thanks for the chuckle :>)

  16. LOL, that’s so so cool, but me, I’d never do anything like that… Wifey and I skinny dip in the pool from time to time, but never naked in the front yard!

  17. I haven’t danced with the devil in the pale moonlight. But I did stand in line for Deal or No Deal. I wrote about it today.

    BTW, It’s your house, dance if you wanna dance.

  18. Oooh! What fun!

    I’ve skinny dipped at night before, but that doesn’t really count as naked outside because of all that water coverage.

    I’m wondering what you’ll do next!

  19. COOL! I have always wanted to do that! You are awesome!

  20. A couple years ago my wife and I rented a cabin in the mountains that had a hot tub out on the deck. I had fun walking naked around the deck and to and from the hot tub – it was early June and very comfortable weather.

    The only other cabins nearby that I knew of were obscured by trees and branches. Well, mostly obscured as far as I know 🙂 But it was a lot of fun just to stand looking out at nature…au natural…

  21. Oh my gosh …. LOL! Yes it does count as streaking. How funny!
