Skinny Dip’n at the Neighbors

I was riding around with my two youngest boys a while back when they said …

“Dad, can we get a hot tub … we never get to hot tub?”

My response was, “Boys, we don’t need a hot tub … we’ve got something better … we’ve got friends with hot tubs. Wanna go right now? The ‘Smiths’ are out of town until tomorrow and they’ve said we’re welcome to come anytime.”

“Dad,” they said, “That’s an awesome idea, let’s go get our suits,”

Thinking it’d be fun to teach my boys a bit about my childhood … I responded with confidence, “Boys, when I was a kid and we found a swimming hole, we’d just strip down and go. We don’t need a swimming suit … besides its almost dark and I’m not going all away across town for suits when we are 2 blocks away.”

A little apprehensive, they said, “You sure, Dad?”

“Sure,” I said, “No worries.”

A few minutes later we were enjoying a nice relaxing tub when … you guessed it … out the back door walks “Ms Smith.” Yip, they decided to come home a day early from their vacation.

I just hope my boys learned a valuable lesson that day … don’t listen to Dad when it comes to things like skinny dipping.

    Way too funny Trey, those are the purest and most simple moments shared by a father and his sons! I too have gotten caught at skinny dipping. Once while training for a bike trek. It was a hot summer day and here in Florida we often get those pesky sea lice. They only seem to affect you if you are wearing dark tight trunks. So I decided the beach I was passing was “remote enough” to strip out of my bike shorts and go for a swim. Well, as I came out of the water and reached for my shorts, out of nowhere a park ranger came speeding up to me on his three wheeler yelling STOP! Yikes! I was given a citation to appear in court. I sat there in courtroom all day, listening to mistameaners like speeding, littering, petty theft. Then I hear with a louder voice than the rangers, “LONGTON vs. STATE OF FLORIDA, NUMBER 1234, CHARGE -INDECENT EXPOSURE.” You can imagine the laughter and to this day I can still hear the Judge’s gavel and him yelling out “Order in the Court!” :>)) PS: That skinny dip cost me $100.00 too!

    Funny, but what a story for your boys (and “Mrs. Smith”) to remember. Every self respecting father needs to do that at least once with his kids. My wife and I taught our kids to skinny dip in a natural springs (and state park) in Florida.

    Wow Trey – your posts should come with a warning: Do not take a drink while reading this. I almost choked. Great stuff! I hope there were lots of bubbles…

    Lucky the neighbor didn’t have video surveillance!

  11. Not sure which took more courage; the skinny dip or posting the story on your blog.

    I’m going with the blog posting.
