... drinking coffee and watching the rain roll in, it suddenly hit me.... human beings are one voyeuristic bunch....no, really.... we're all addicted to peeping around corners, rubbernecking at traffic accidents, and gleaning that little bit of hidden meaning out of everything.. it is the only thing that explains the great love shown for Oprah, soap operas, Jerry Springer, and blogging....

... and hey, I've been around... but I imagine that we can all casually be lumped into two groups.... Voyeurs and Exhibitionists.... sure, I know those two words normally bear sexual significance... that fact isn't lost on me at all... but really, it is true... just think about the things that make us rubberneck the most?... sex, life, sex, death, sex, accidents, sex, cats, and sex....usually in that order...

... go ahead, scoff if you will..... but that doesn't make it less true.... you could almost say that by keeping a blog, well, you are giving a little exercise to your exhibitionist side.... letting it all hang out, so to speak... talking to the seething, unknown cyber-masses about bodily functions, mental masturbation, or just simply giving them a peek into your daily diary... and by reading blogs?... well, you all should be ashamed of yourself... you bunch of perverts...

.. but we just can't force ourselves to turn away.... it's as if we're completely submerged in the deepest type of reality-show... Big Brother, Survivor, and Days of our Lives all rolled into one.... it truly is disgusting..... but good God, I love blogging... so on that note (and in the Spirit of the Theme of this post) here is a totally unrelated photo of Yours Truly swimming in my Momma's pool yesterday!!...


... just check out that motivated leg-kick after completing a flawless flip-turn...

...freestyle, people... freestyle... don't you just love blogging?...

Bullshit So Far

I do love your way with words!

I would be a little bit the exhibitionist but only in select company, and only when there is something I want to dance on, in or around. . .

There are some bloggers I would like to see donate their brains and or body to science. I believe yours, Ellersons, Acidmans and Vgods would make a fine collection. That would keep those white coated devils puzzled for years. Think Duke Medical Center.

That list of things you have that motivate us to rubberneck? Strike cats. They don't do it for me... ;-)

"Bunch of perverts?" You certainly have YOUR nerve to call me a member of ANYTHING--- except the Axis of Asshole.

Besides--- perversion in in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I think a foot fetish is a GOOD thing. Especially when it involves pretty red toenails on a woman.

Does THAT make me a "pervert?"

Man, that's some purty blue water! Mama must have one hell of a pool boy.

Just like all lawyers are frustrated actors, all bloggers are released exhibitionists -- so of us more literally than others....

Gosh... and with your having mentioned sex that many times in one post, I would have thought of you swimming breaststroke before freestyle. But what the heck do I know.... ;)

Thus the sobriquet "thinking reed".

By the way.... Semper Fi. Happy Flag Day.

Damn man... I'd have hoped that one of the lady blogder's would've stepped up with this one, but, alas, they've failed us again... Exhibitionist? Voyuer...?

Why couldn't one of the ladies come to the rescue with the obvious...

"I'll show you mine, if you show me yours"...

See, that sounds so bad comin' from me, to ... you.
