Another Hard Limit Bites The Dust
On the weekend I was invited to a house party - a pool / potluck barbeque party.
Now I had been warned that this pool party was a "swim suit optional" party. UGH! I have never EVER gone skinny dipping ... in public.. in front of anyone! (Once a long long time ago - when my ex and I had a pool in the backyard - and it was a hot steamy night - I did disrobe and plunge in the pool to cool off at 3:00 am - but I don't count that)
I was reassured that some folks would be in suits - that I did not HAVE to disrobe - but I still had butterflies. Would I feel the odd man out trotting around in a suit?? Would I feel worse trotting around naked?? ahhhh the dilemmas we subs go through when we don't have someone to "order" it - and take the responsibility off our shoulders - so we can trot around naked - and be able to say "not my choice I was ORDERED to" and have a clear conscience!
I had (and wore) a very cute black and white striped strapless sun dress...... a kinda cover up. I was wearing that (sans swim suit) at the pool when folks starting arriving - starting stripping down and diving in. I curled up and tried to disappear into the chair.
Then I heard this voice from the pool - "S - it's time to come in the pool. NOW." I - with great trepidation - stripped off my sundress and walked to the ladder and climbed in. Not a word was spoken - everyone continued splashing and laughing and ignoring me.. I felt pretty damn good.......... no one had noticed !!
Eventually I wanted a drink and some sun - I approached the ladder nonchalantly. As I started to climb the ladder - one of the Doms (good naturedly and teasingly ) started chanting "I see S's bare bum - I see S's bare bum" and everyone laughed - including me. The worst was over.
And it didn't turn into some great orgy of naked bodies engaging in all sorts of sexual activities. It was just like a 'normal' pool party - lots of splashing and teasing and good natured fun.............
After a marvelous barbeque feast - some of us started a game of "Cards against Humanity" a game I have heard a lot about - but never played. I was so excited - like a kid at a party. The cards were raunchy and there was lots of giggling and laughter as our cards were read out - we were all relaxed and getting into the spirit of the game. (of course the pre-dinner "purple" drinks went a long way to help ..........
I couldn't believe how fast the time went - soon the lights were put on around the pool ... the last of the swimmers climbed out and dried off........ and everyone started to slowly leave.
I had a warm glow - these people - these friends - were amazing. I felt accepted and maybe more than that I did truly feel loved!
When I was tucked into bed - a kiss on my forehead - the blankets pulled tight around me and the soft words spoken "sweet dreams" I smiled - how could I NOT have sweet dreams ?!
