Random Thought Late At Night
Warning: This post contains verbal imagery that may be unfit for some readers.
Why is it that I have a hard time talking on the phone, while naked, to certain people?
This is a very strange phenomenon that I have noticed in the past couple of weeks. My normal day usually starts and ends with me being as naked as the moment I was born, just hairier. I sleep naked usually; my reasoning for this is two fold. First, it is freaking hot and humid in my apartment. Second, I read somewhere that you actually can get a better night's sleep if you do so in the buff and it is true. Who would have thought that boxer briefs could keep me from more lucid dreams and sounder overall sleep? The first few nights of slumbering sans undies were strange. I actually had dreams about being naked in front of people. Very odd. After those first days though, I did begin to sleep sounder. I have no clue why and I am not going to delve into the logistics of it.
On any given night, I would say that if you magically apparated into my apartment about five minutes after I have gotten in from teaching, you would find me nude. I have no problem being naked and seeing that my apartment does get warm and humid even with fans going, taking off my clothes is one of the first things I do when I walk in the door. I figure, I live alone, there are no windows that other people could peer in from (not for my sake but for theirs, I wouldn't want another man to be ashamed of himself after seeing me and I don't want women flocking from their significant others to bask in my glory)and most of the time no one ever comes to my door or calls me to go out and do stuff. My stark white body affects no one but me.
But here is the kicker, I do get quite a few phone calls. It befuddles me but there are some people that I simply cannot speak to if I am naked. I know they can't see me and they have no clue that I am minus clothing (though I think some just assume) so I am not sure why it bugs me. For example, I was happily typing on my computer when my dad rang in to talk to me. Before, I actually started the conversation, I ran over and go some jersey shorts on. I can't talk to my mom or some of my other friends naked either. It is very strange and I am not sure why I am fine talking to some people in my full glory and not others. My mom I can understand but my friends, who cares? For some reason, a small part of my brain does.
I don't think it is a purely sexual reason either. There are members of both sexes that I can't telecommunicate with in the nude and neither side has a bigger portion than the other. There are some times when I even get uncomfortable IM'ing certain people naked. It isn't a big deal, I am merely curious as to why my mind functions like that.
The really funny part is that, thanks to this blog post, I have planted a seed. Every time you are IM'ing me or talking to me or maybe even getting an email from me, you will wonder, "Is Tyson naked right now," or "Was he naked when he wrote this?" And you will never know...but the answer is probably, yes. Don't ask and I won't tell. Pretend like you never read this. But for your information, I am not naked at this very moment.(@_-)
