To convey a realistic picture of my CD life, I feel I should talk about my bad days as well as my CDing successes.
Yesterday started out as a perfect beach day. Temp was in the low 80’s, clear sunny day (perfect for tanning), enough wind to keep the bugs away but not enough to blow people’s stuff all over the place. There were enough people there to make lively conversation, but not so many as to prevent social distancing. In other words, a “10” as beach days go.
There was a couple sitting about 20 feet from me. I assumed they were BF/GF. I should also mention that they were consuming alcoholic beverages at the time, which is illegal in city parks or beaches here. The woman stood up and walked over to me. She began complimenting me on my tan, noting that my white string bikini made my tan “stand out” more than a dark colored swimsuit would. She continued complimenting me. Of course I politely thanked her. She hollered at her BF: “Hey Larry, come over here” When he came, she said: “Hon, I think you should wear a little bikini like this guy does, and then you could get a terrific tan like his. I think you should ditch those stupid green trunks you’re wearing, they’re boring as hell. He said: “I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything like that”, meaning my swimsuit. In an attempt to defuse what I believed was an escalating argument, I said to him: “Why don’t you get cremated when you die, then clothing or lack of it wouldn’t be an issue?” I tried to disrupt the tempo of their argument with a little bit of humor, but it didn’t work. Their argument escalated and became increasingly laced with profanity.
I don’t know which beach-goer it was, but somebody called the cops. They arrested the couple and took them away. So no harm done to me or to anyone else, nevertheless the whole thing spoiled what would have been a perfect beach day for all.
