Another Tween Awakening: Skinny Dipping

“What ‘skinny dipping’ mean?” was DJ’s latest question.

“Swimming naked” responded G.

“Ick! That’s so groooosssss!!” DJ is really getting the teenager-esque shock down.

“What?! You used to run naked through the house until maybe two years ago. Why wasn’t it gross then?”

“It was gross.”

“Hey DJ. You know that place we went to watch the meteor shower the other night?” I asked.


“It’s a nude beach.”


“Yeah people are naked there.”

“OMG!! I sat where NAKED people were sitting??!!!”


She looks at my seriously, “That’s just gross.”

“Is a shower gross?”

“Why would a shower be gross?”

“Naked people have been in it. I mean, I don’t shower with my clothes on, do you?”

“You are weird, Moe.”

“And you shower naked, DJ.”

Poor DJ. Has two parents who are happy to torment her with reality.

    Might I suggest a sitcom starring your family? This is golden.
