Good Girls Don't Skinny Dip!

In celebration of release day of Elana Johnson's POSSESSION, Ali Cross, Nichole Giles and Windy Aphayrath are hosting a fun blog hop! You just have to write a post on your blog about a time you broke the rules... ;-)

At the high school I attended we had what were known as Bonding Tours [think of any definition of the term "bonding" and I'm pretty sure it happened ;) ] at the beginning of each year. The 12th Grade Bonding Tour was something students looked forward to from the time they arrived at the school, because while the venues for the other grades changed each year, the Grade 12s were ALWAYS taken to Sun City...

In case you don't know anything of Sun City, it's huge. There are loads of different hotels and resorts there. Since it was the height of summer my six best girlfriends and I decided to swim in as many different pools as possible before we left.

One night we came across a pool that was deserted--not a single person was either in or near the pool. The "wild child" of our group (this was most certainly NOT me) decided we should take advantage of the darkness and STRIP under the water! After much giggling and coercion we were all waving our bikinis around in the air over our heads while treading water completely naked! A somewhat terrifying feeling for a good girl like me ;-)

After several minutes a few strangers (ahem, boys...) came wandering towards the pool, which resulted in a whole lot more giggling and squealing as we all tried to put our bikinis back on before the boys got close enough to realise we weren't wearing anything!

So what rule was I breaking there? Uh... a social etiquette rule? A personal rule to not embarrass myself in public?! Hehehe... So what rule have you broken?

Fun story! I hope you got all the bikinis back in place before the boys noticed. ;)

You crazy girl, you! I'm not much of a rule breaker. I guess I could count that I ate a cookie when I told myself that I wasn't allowed to have any more. Yeah, I'm pretty wicked.

What? There are rules? When did this happen?

Cally Jackson said...

Haha, love it. What a fun blog hop. I'll have to check out the other entries.

I stole the cold tap from a restaurant one time. Yes, that's right. A tap. In my inebriated state, that seemed a good way to claim retribution for their appalling customer service.

Ahem. Starting to wish I hadn't shared that story now!

Cool idea for a blog hop! :)

I love this rule-breaking expedition! Skinny dipping? Oh yeah. The Thinkers would TOTALLY arrest you for that. Thanks for joining our blog hop!

OMG - I've gone skinny-dipping, too! My two best friends and I all went up north to Muskoka to a cottage and that night we skinny-dipped in the lake. It was SO much fun.

Rules I've broken... hmmmmm... Not sure! Gak, am I really that much of a goody-goody???

That does sound like fun, but I would have been the last one to strip or more likely the lookout - standing meekly by the entrance to the pool area and hissing at the other girls as the boys approached. I was such a chicken.
