The Friday Night Surprise

So I think I've mentioned before that nothing shocks me any more. But every once and a while, I get surprised and every once and a GREAT while, I get totally surprised. Well, it happened Friday night.

I have an all-day writer's workshop on Saturday to attend, so my local cp's and I decided to get a room Friday (like we always do when individual schedules allow) and do our girl's writer's night. So it was fairly late (11:00 ish) that night when we put on bathing suits and headed down to the hot tub (one of the main reasons for the hotel excursion). We had been sitting there for about a hour when a guy walked in. The timer had just gone off so he asked if we wanted it turned back on. We said yes, so he did then he asked if he could turn off the lights.

We really didn't care. The room opened up to the courtyard which had plenty of light and quite frankly, we were already hot and the popcorn lights weren't helping matters. So he turns off the lights and then walks around to the side of the hot tub and sits at the side. My cp's are running on about one of their wips, so they aren't paying attention to this dude, but I thought he as acting weird. I mean, he seemed to be in pretty good shape but yet he was sitting on the side of the hot tub with the towel wrapped around him. So as soon as I turn my head, he slips into the water and I'm like "Oh My God! I bet he's naked!" (which in the south, is pronounced nekkid)

So my cp's have never looked over but I stop contributing to the conversation altogether. I'm too busy looking for his hands. Because by God, if his hands go below and his shoulder shakes (or anything else) I am SOOOOOOO out of there. So I'm busy on hand watch and the other two are plotting a book and finally one cp looks at ole boy and says "I bet we're boring you to death." Mind you, she STILL doesn't notice anything weird. The other one looks over as he responded and it was written all over her face - she definitely knew he was nekkid, now.

So a couple of minutes later we decide we're waterlogged and get out. We're halfway down the hall when I say "Can you believe that guy was in the hot tub nekkid!!!!" The clueless cp almost falls out in the hall and says "But he was floating on his back when we left!" Of course, it was dark, so I guess she didn't get a good look.

Now, being nekkid in a public place is bad enough but there is some big high school dance competition going on this weekend and half of the hotel was filled with high school girls. What in the world was he thinking??????? Doesn't he know that only one person filing a complaint would have him labeled a sexual preditor??????? Since this is the south, I would ask the direct question and say "what kind of balls does it take to pull something like that?" But it would be pointless, since I know what kind he had and that still doesn't answer my question.

So did you see anything interesting on Friday night?

Wow! Your Friday night was way more exciting than mine. *g*

ROFLMAO! Jana, I've just spewed Diet Coke all over my monitor.

Now, I must say ... why didn't you call him on it? I'm really surprised you didn't just come right out and ask him why he was nekkid. You're not usually shy LOL. Was it just shock?

Jana DeLeon said...

Tori - you should come visit me sometime - hang out in hot tubs with nekkid strangers and the like. :)

Wendy - you know, if I had been absolutely SURE he was nekkid before we got out, I probably would have said something. But there was still that 1% of doubt that made me zip it. Bummer - could have been a really funny moment.

Tori Lennox said...

Yes, I obviously need to get out more. *g*

What she didn't tell you was how badly I wanted to turn around and go back there and confront him. I'm still shaking my head over that one. I mean, come on, it's not everyday you get into a hot tub with a naked man that's not your husband! Signed: the clueless CP.
