Summer Re-Runs


Please be advised that our 'Skinny Dipping Life' 
Originally aired late last summer.
Soon after We received
E-Mail from Irishmen
Who admitted they
Enjoyed the piece.

We love the idea of making Irish Men smile.

This is a story: 

A Skinny Dipping Life

There’s nothing We adore more
Than that fresh newborn feeling,
As We rush into warm watered 
Lakes & lagoons before light falls.

But with a soda bread belly,

Our insecurities bite us in the bum

Then frighten us

Into not partaking in those

Fun-filled festivities

We usually could never live without.  

Vulnerably now nude & with nowhere to hide,
Our To-Do List is shortened down to two:

1.    Recall the advice of our loonie uni drama professor:

All we’re trying to do here is, get you out of your own way.”

Truthfully, We are the only ones stopping ourselves from jumping in feet first today. All the other bathers here are busy thinking about with their own biggie problems to even notice us. No one has the time, but everyone has an ego that is hopefully distracting them from ours. With this realization We’re ready to step aside & start to enjoy what We came ‘here’ to do.

2.    Bid Adieu to extra breads, biskkies & bon bons after toweling & gasp a grateful, Oh Mon Dieu! to dainty, delicious (& healthier) dips instead, as to try & prevent this icky self-loathing feeling from returning tomorrow.

Freedom is getting out of your own way, 
while making a path for the future.
