TMI THURSDAY: THE EXHIBITIONIST . . .

You know what time it is, right??? TMI Thursday time, hosted by the rather wonderful and TOTALLY one-of-a-kind LiLu . . .

TMI Thursday

Alright, folks, you know the rules. Join us all in humiliating the crap out of yourself every Thursday by sharing some completely tasteless, wholly unclassy, “how many readers can I estrange THIS week??” TMI story about your life. Or hell, about someone else’s!

I wasn't entirely sure how TMI this tale actually was but then I remembered I'd posted a version of it on my Bebo blog a couple of years back and of my friends had private messaged me telling me I needed to stop talking about this stuff "in public". Therefore she surely considered it a TMI, right? Either way, I think it's a funny story.

Although it does make me sound like a bit of a fanny. (But, hey, you probably knew that anyway!)

When I first moved into my flatshare in July 2003, I was a bit bored. I didn't know any of my flatmates at the time and they weren't around for those first few days anyway. I had no TV. Most of my belongings were at my parents.

I DID have two large windows though, which take up most of the outside wall of my room. The curtains didn't cover them very well, so I could see into the flat across the road from me. There was always lots of guys in it, so I was very curious - although I couldn't tell if they were good looking or not! Anyway, to amuse myself, I would imagine that they were watching ME too and when it came to getting ready for bed . . . I used to TEASE them. I would stand only partially concealed by the curtain as I undressed . . . seemingly unaware that they were there . . . but I would never reveal too much. I'm not a stripper - but I'll admit I WAS being a bit of an exhibitionist. What can I say, boredom does funny things to people . . .

So after a couple of weeks of this, one night one of my flatmates made us all dinner (she was moving in with her man the next week) and I imbibed quite a bit of wine. (Believe it or not, I didn't drink a lot in those days and all the times I had been doing my little strip"tease" in front of the window . . . I had been completely sober. I know, how things change right?) After a few hours I wound my way down the hall to my room, more than ready for bed.

I could see the light was on in the flat opposite but I wasn't paying much attention. I sat down at my desk to take out my contacts, but right before I did so, I detected a movement out of the corner of my eye. And turned . . .

In the flat opposite, one of the guys was standing topless, pressed against the window staring over at me!!!!

At this point, I totally freaked out, closed the curtains as best I could, and switched off all the lights.

I never teased them again.

Perhaps I missed out on the (topless) guy of my dreams? I guess I'll never know . . .

  2. Mine is:

    I was almost deported from the US but only diplomatic/military intervention at the highest levels saved me, that story in bulletpoints:

    I was in the US on exercise with my RAF squadron. We were based at Edwards AFB. On our third night I went out with a couple of my colleagues and some of the US servicemen on a binge. We drank them off the face of the planet. I woke up the next morning in the company of a charming young lady in her bedroom in her family home. I got out of bed, had a shower/shave etc, fixed us breakfast and returned to bed where things happened for a while. Rude words may have been uttered during the things. Her father came home. Catching us in one of our more athletic poses. He was in uniform. He was the CO of Edwards AFB. He ordered me off his daughter, out of his house and off his station. My CO refused the latter, said that if I went the whole squadron would go and there'd be no exercise. There was an angry stand-off. A British diplomat flew down from Washington to smooth things over. We stayed, the exercised continued, I wasn't allowed to see her again (sniff). I had a US escort for the rest of my time on base.

  4. Ah...yeah, we have windows like that in our new place, but thankfully we're across the street from a big huge field so unless we've got peeping deer, we should be okay! But just in case, I'm not taking any chances!!

  9. Ha! Funny thing is that if the cops looked up, he'd probably get in trouble for being a Peeping Tom watching you undress but if he undressed he gets in trouble for being indecently exposed! Talk about a double standard. Wacky.

  11. I'm with Amy on this. It truly could have. I bet they were disappointed that you stopped.

    I think one of these weeks I need to write about my own teasing habits. That could be interesting.

    Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back next week for my...reaction post.

    - Kendall, the man with the masturbator.

  12. He was probably totally unaware that you were there too and had been doing a strip tease to your window to cure his boredom too lol.

  14. It's easy to be brave when you're not sure anyone is looking, isn't it? You crack me up. If I'd had a lot to drink, I probably would have been over there licking the window, being completely obscene. Just a little tipsy? Robe on, lights out, just like you!

    You never know, you might just get your chance again sometime. Keep your curtains and eyes open.
