I’m not sure what I’ve gotten myself into with Mel’s party now.
When I got home I messaged her to ask when I should come round and, very importantly, what I should wear. She said to be there around 4pm and that “usual clothing rules apply”. I couldn’t quite believe she meant it like that, unless the party was only going to be people like me, Ha, Lily and maybe Sarah and George, so I just replied saying “Aren’t there going to be strangers there?” and she replied reminding me that I’d said it was easier being naked in front of strangers than people who knew me!
I didn’t think I could go through with that, and then another message arrived saying “I’ve got a mask. Nobody will recognise you,” and suddenly my body was tingling again. It felt like the perfect night, to be naked in a room full of clothed people (or at least I assume they’d all be clothed) and with no consequences. Mel had said I had to push my boundaries, so I guess this is it.
I can’t stop thinking about it now.
