Additional ways to scare the shit out of me...

Tuesday, May 23, 2006

Or "Why it is the afternoon and Dawn hasn't showered yet.."

Here I am, typing away when this god awful noise begins outside my window. Scraping. Loud scraping.

A face is in my bedroom window. Holy shit!!

I sneak to one of the windows with the curtains drawn and peek out to see this:


ACK! There are work people. Washing and painting! Now I can't shower, cause they'll see me! (Did you like how I snuck the camera out of the window to take this undercover pic? - I didn't want to make my presence known...)

Here is an additional way to scare the shit out of me - repeatedly.

Be a Robin. Decide to build your nest in the eave of my bedroom window. Fly at my window several times in the course of the day, startling me EVERY time, then pull up short to your nest. Rinse and repeat.

I popped out of my window to see the nest. The Robin was NOT amused.




I can't see any eggs - can you?

Updated to add, at 3 p.m. today, I have scouted all the work people out and seen them all on the front of the house. They have left the back of the house general area, and I feel it will be safe to take a shower. Cause they're all done with the back of the house...Right?

Exactly. I think you know where I am going with this. Hair is washed and I think - I'm going to shave my legs. Mid leg (and can I recommend the "Basin" brand tea tree and lemon oil shaving cream...Heaven) I hear what I am pretty damn sure is a loud scraping sound. Oh yeah. They're back and in my shower window. Once again, I have flashed my boobs at people unknown. This time however, I added a blood curdling scream and leap as I jumped back out of the shower and tried to get the shower curtain closed. Sadly I still had a leg full of shaving cream and was now trapped in the bathroom. This was because the entire back of the house was re-covered with work people and my clothes were in the bedroom - where someone else was at the window.

So this makes the boy neighbor while doing the underwater handstand, the Painters and the Fuel guy with whom I have inadvertedly shared "the girls" . Good times.

Holy shit, that doesn't look like the robin nests around here! Eagle's nests, maybe. I believe I'd be keeping my windows closed.

Hey. The workmen can consider the gratuitous booby flashes part of their tip. (Or should I say tips?)

sweatpantsmom said...

Those workers are going to be taking their time finishing that job now, for sure, lingering at that bathroom window of yours, lady.

I once flashed our contractor's fifteen year old son who, unbeknownst to me, was sitting in his dad's truck in our driveway, parked right outside our bedroom window.

Hey, the robin's nest! :)

This sounds like a movie I once watched. Granted, not a movie I'd tell my grandma about. LOL

I can only tell you that I would never ever look out the window of my NYC pad and see any of these things. Our urban version of it might have been the few incidents where window washers on the 10th floor startled naked me in very much the same way.

What is the ratio of deliberate to inadvertent "girls" sharings?

mama_tulip said...

I read this last night but Oliver woke up and I didn't get a chance to comment. I was laughing so hard I think I might have woken him up. I flashed my neighbour to the left last year while I was breastfeeding Oliver...my one boob was rock hard and totally engorged and the other one was completely deflated. The look on my neighbour's face when he saw my freakshow chest was enough to send me into a depression. I was seriously pissed he didn't seem more thrilled to have seen real, live titties, 'cause he's not the kind of man who looks like he gets to see real live titties on a regular basis, let alone the sunlight.

Dawn said...

Hey Moobs, I have begun to think I might have to flash more "on purpose" - to even out the ratio...

Dawn said...

And Mama T- Yeah and NOT on the internet..

TB said...

I think it's always a good idea to flash workers at your house right up front, that way they get used to seeing you and you can continue to walk around the house naked. Or maybe that's just me.

Man you had a gorgeous day yesterday!

Meghan said...

I am still chuckling visualizing you covertly sneaking the camera out the window to snap a picture.

God you are funny.

Sugarmama said...

I bet they were totally lying in wait for you to get in the shower, knowing they'd get an eyeful. Sneaky bastards.

Diana said...

LOL! God, my stomach hurts from laughing. I think they WERE waiting...

mothergoosemouse said...

Ditto Mom-101 with the window watchers. They've seen me pump.

Mommy off the Record said...

Oh man. Maybe you should ask them for a tip. he he

Btw, nice camera work. :)

Lisa said...

You could have slipped them some sandwhiches. Might as well give em' dinner with the show. heehee.

Fraulein N said...

Dawn, I'm gonna have to start suspecting these weren't "accidents," you know. ;-)

Bobita said...

Perhaps, you have *jahoobie-stalkers?

I say...if the "girls" gotta be seen...let the show BEGIN!

Girls, after all, will be girls!!

*Feral Mom...I've blatantly (and un-ashamedly) stolen your boob-word (jahoobies)! In my defense...I couldn't help it!!

I'm always running through the house half naked in the morning to get clean clothes from the laundry room (it would make much more sense if I'd just carry the damn things upstairs to my closet, but that's another story...) I don't know how many times I've flashed people in the neighboring townhouses and/or walking along the trail behind our house. I am sure that wasn't quite the morning pick-me-up they were looking for, seeing my chalk-white ass hanging in the breeze.

I have now added the Basin creme to my Del.icio.us wishlist. Thanks for the rec.
