I’ve been racing against the clock since the first of March trying to get all my flower beds weeded and covered with new mulch before Memorial Day. After that date, it is too hot to work out in the yard and I become an air-conditioning fanatic.

Heat in the upper 90’s is bad enough but down here in the South, we get this additional ingredient called humidity. That stuff makes you sweat buckets. Next thing you know, your Misery Index is up there in the stratosphere.

I’ve thought about this a lot and I’ve come to the conclusion that I might be able to garden past Memorial Day if I could give up wearing clothes. If everyone gave up clothes in the summer, my nakedness would be no big deal. Besides, wasn’t there an Emperor who wore no clothes? Under the law of What’s Good For The Goose Is Good For The Gander, the rest of us should also be allowed to wear no clothes.

Additionally, everyone could see what everyone else had and decide whether or not they wanted to fool with it. It would be the ultimate in honesty. After all, clothes hide all manner of saggy parts. Here are my saggy parts:

Can I get an Amen on this?

  1. It would work, except for the bugs! I realized today how close to summer we are. I feel like i am clinging to the edge of spring, desperately trying to hang onto it, screaming “Noooo-oooo-oo!”

  2. I do believe your saggy parts are upward over the belly button and below your adam’s apple.

    1. Yes! A revolution! Think of the money we would save on clothes. Was reading a Washington Post article in our Sunday newspaper about those born after 1942 not making much money in their lifetime. This would help their finances. And Kimmie, there is no such word as naked. It’s nekkid.

    1. Thank you, Dena! I now have two votes for nekkid gardening. Blondie tells me there is a National Naked Gardening Day but down here in the hot tropics, we need more than one day a year.
