Wtf? Lols. A single father wrote into Dear Abbey to ask her if he was a prude because his two jock teenage sons shower and hang out naked with their friends in what he describes as a nude fest. Gawker took the article and added an hilarious “translated” spin on it.
In a column published this week,
DEAR ABBY: I am the single dad of two teenage boys (17 and 18) who are both in high school. I am wondering about something they do with their friends. The boys take showers in large groups. When they come in from running or sports, or if a group is spending the night, they shower in groups of two, three or four. It’s not like we have a huge shower — it’s normal size.
Translated: The shower has enough room for one salami and two baguettes, not four salamis and eight baguettes. You know, normal size.
I know there’s nothing sexual going on because I can hear them talking and joking around.
Translated: I have tiptoed in stocking feet up to the bathroom door, pressed my ears up to the doors. Once—but only once—I even held a glass up to the door.
Okay, three times.
When I asked the boys about this, they looked at me like I had two heads. They said it was just a social thing and the same as showering together after football in the school gym.
Translated: That one (of three) time(s) I pressed the glass onto the door I heard them laughing and talking about Dick—he’s a tight end on the high-school football team. I swear; he’s a good kid. AND A REAL PERSON! I even met his parents!
They also “air dry” after showers by walking around in towels, sometimes watching TV or goofing off for hours while in their towels. When going out, they get naked in the bathroom, fixing their hair, shaving, brushing their teeth, etc. It’s like a big nude fest.
again, LOLS. I would definitely say prude…
Tony Perkins is somewhere writing his next blog post blaming all this teen nudity on the gays…
