As many of you know, I live in a loft condo. My windows, while facing south and offering some bit of a view, also face the commercial side of my building.
And this morning (for the first time ever) I was a bit concerned as to how much of my business I might be showing to those businesses.
I never close the blinds in my place; I enjoy the light too much. Plus, there is almost never anyone in the commercial side when I am home when it matters, I.e. when it’s darker out and my lights are on inside. I’m on the 5th floor, too, so I figure I can walk around naked with immunity.
Or at least that’s what I’ve always believed.
This morning, I stepped out of my shower and was preparing to shave when reflected in the bathroom mirror I saw one of the commercial windows. And it had a light on.
“Hrm, that’s different,” I thought. And as I was lathering my face I saw movement. Yes, there was a person (or persons) over there walking around. And if I can see them….
I didn’t dive for cover or anything, but I did keep my towel firmly in place until I could get dressed. No air drying of what god and Dr Borgman gave me today.
My issue now is, what do I do moving forward? I can’t act purely anymore, because now I have this knowledge. So if I walk around naked, I’ll know that I could potentially be giving a free show. Or do I now modify my behavior to more modesty, even though I don’t want to?
Stupid businesses ruining my naked time.
