Sometimes callers tell you the most ridiculous stories about things they’ve done. Sometimes they were caught by others, other times they were not. One caller told me about how in his youth he really liked to be outdoors naked. Now that doesn’t seem too odd, and I suppose if you’re lucky enough to live in the country and have a good bit of land with no one around, you could indeed wander around nude and no one would see. Alas this caller was not in the country and it was wintertime, and thirty degrees when the mood struck him.
He decided to remove his clothes and have a quick jog around the immediate area where he was. Not around the block, but through a few backyards. A neighbor saw him, but since he was running, she didn’t see his face, only a naked man running in the snow. She called the other neighbors telling them to be on the lookout for a naked man running around the neighborhood. He had his odd fun, quickly put his clothes back on and went back home before someone grabbed him. He came in and his mom asked him if he’d happened to see a naked man running around outside.
He said it was all he could do not to laugh, since of course he’d been the naked man the ladies in the neighborhood were all in a tizzy about, but they did not know that. So she actually told him to go back out and have a look around the neighbors yards, to see if he could find this fiendish, wintertime streaker. He was laughing as he was relating this ridiculous story from his youth. Many people do enjoy being nude outdoors, but in the snow? That’s a bit cold, to be sure. It was a lot of fun for him and gave him a fairly harmless wintertime memory.
