We have a lovely neighbor next door, Susan, who occasionally drops in to say hi and chat for a bit. I love these visits from her! Recently she stopped by and as always, we sat at the kitchen table to talk; she could see the back yard through the French doors but I had my back to the French doors.
All of a sudden Susan kind of gasped and said, “You husband is outside and he's naked!” I looked behind me and sure enough, Bill was walking around the back yard naked as a jaybird! (We have a very private pool area and back yard.)
I ran outside yelling, “Where are your clothes???? Susan is here and she just saw you naked.” I don't think he understood me because he raised his hands up (holding something green) and said, “Look at my frog! I found him in the pool drain.”
I again yelled, “Get your clothes on, Susan is here and she can see you.” He yelled back, “Why didn't you tell me we have company?” I yelled to him, “Why didn't you tell me you were taking your clothes off and running around the back yard naked?”
Bill had drained the pool and was cleaning the sides and bottom with the pressure cleaner and collecting dead bugs and leaves by hand. Apparently, while he was working in the pool he got very hot, wet, dirty and sweaty so he took his clothes off. It's private so he thought he was safe. Then he was pulling leaves and debris out of the drain when a very large frog jumped out and startled him.
He got out of the pool and took the frog to the back corner of the yard to release it. That is when Susan saw him strolling around naked.
A few minutes later as she was leaving, Susan called over the fence to Bill, “Okay, coast is clear now.”
He came walking out though the gate to the front yard (fully dressed) and asked her, “Did you see my frog?”
She just laughed and said, “Oh? is that what you call it now?”
However, the story doesn't end here. Bill went to our neighbor's Pat and Patti's house to see their salt-water pool. Patti was not home but Pat invited Bill to try it out to see how he liked the salt water (Bill is considering converting our pool to a salt water pool). Fortunately he had on his casual shorts in the pool because Patti came home while Bill was still in the pool. She wanted to know why he had on shorts at her house when Susan got to see him naked.
Later that afternoon Bill offered to help our neighbor, Tim, trim the hedge in his front yard. He told Bill, “Sure, you can help but you have to keep your clothes on.” Then he proceeded to tease Bill and list all the laws Bill broke by going naked and flashing Susan. (Tim is a police officer).
The last incident I heard of was another neighbor who asked Bill, “Are you discriminating against younger women Bill? Susan got to see you naked and I didn't. Is it because I'm only 30 and too young to see you naked?”
I think all the neighbors and having a good time teasing Bill! And at this point I don't think there are any neighbors who haven't heard about Bill and his frog! When they see Bill the common greeting is, “Hi Bill, how's your frog?”
I don't think the neighbors will ever let him live this one down!
