The real dirt - No need to roll up the sleeves
May 13, 2011
Woohoo! Dig those bare buttocks and boobs. May 14 is, believe it or not, World Naked Gardening Day.
According to the American Association for Nude Recreation, May 14 is the day when we should all get outside and tend our gardens, flower boxes and yards clothed “as nature intended.”
“Nude gardening is comfortable, saves on laundry, and makes for a quick personal clean up — just hose down,” these folks say.
They also claim that “besides being liberating, nude gardening is second only to swimming as an activity that people are most ready to consider doing nude.”
I’ve actually weeded in the buff myself. (Relax folks. I live out in the boonies. No neighbours around to scare). But burr what’s with the weird timing? Up here in Canada, this day of celebration would probably result in very chilly extremities, and I’m not just talking frozen fingers. Couldn’t you organize the bash at a sensible time of year, like July?
