As a bare practitioner, my worst possible nightmare (horror of horrors) is being forced to wear clothing or a covering at a clothes-free social event. This nocturnal terror is ten times worse than any imagery described in Dante’s Inferno and is comparable to the proverbial “nightmare from hell.” It even surpasses a recurring dream of an unending and repetitive sequence of visits to the dentist.
I don’t often have bad dreams/nightmares. Usually my dreams are of a positive nature and involve pleasant circumstances. About a week ago, I did have a really bad dream that is the topic of my opening paragraph. It was so horrible that upon wakening, I immediately got up, grabbed a pen and noted the circumstances in my diary. In doing so, I disturbed the sleep of my husband, Aaron, and, of course, had to relive the horror with him.
His reaction? He shuddered, rolled his eyes and gave me a very tight and very naked hug!
The subject of my subconscious dream was both frustrating, humiliating and caused me unbearable suffering. In my dream, I was invited to a summer pool party that was the social nudists’ “A-List” event. The truly bizarre and disconcerting aspect of my fantasy was that everyone else there was happily clothes-free (nude) with the sole exception of myself. I was perpetually stuck in a swimsuit that was impossible to remove!
In my dream, Aaron tried numerous times to help me out of my dilemma. The damn pair of swimming trunks simply would not come off! By this time, all of the other social nudists at the splash party were laughing and ridiculing me. However, we were unable to peel. pull or otherwise strip the swimsuit off my body!
Aaron even tried to use his cigarette lighter to burn the swim-briefs. Unfortunately, the other party-goers had laughed and splashed water on me and the trunks were soaked. They would not burn!
Fortunately, I woke up. That ended the nightmare. Unfortunately, I had no rescue from my predicament. There was no “happily-ever-after” ending. In my sleep, I suppose I am eternally damned to spend forever at a bare pool party, all alone in a swimsuit!
I hope this is one nightmare that never becomes reality!
