So since I’m away, hubby took Jake for two hikes today. He and the dog left on their second hike near dusk, heading over to the wilderness park near our home. The park is steep and, aside from the main trail, relatively inaccessible. There are numerous trails, however they meander. Many end abruptly– sometimes at a cliff edge. It helps to know your way around for a variety of reasons.
There was hubby, hiking on our favorite side trail with Jake. He crested a hill and came to an old oak. Years ago some kids put a swing on that old oak, but it’s rotted and fallen into disuse.
Hubby says it was dusk, the sun had gone down behind the hills, and there right in front of him he spotted a young couple beneath the tree buck naked, doing it doggy-style.
The path led right past them.
Hubby stood there for a while, not really wanting to turn around – which would have meant backtracking all the way up to the summit. He didn’t want to be hiking in the dark. So he cleared his throat a few times, which they apparently didn’t hear… Finally he shouted, “Coming through!”
The couple threw on their clothes and headed off down the trail.
Now, if they’d known their way around the park, and it was obvious from hubby’s tale they did not, they would have known about some of the barely-used side trails, side trails which offer a great deal of privacy.
Instead they stuck to the main trail and hubby, who’d been poking to give them time to find one of those discreet out of the way places, came around a another corner and ran right into them, naked, doing it doggy-style in the middle of the trail.
This time he said, “C’mon, guys. I’m trying to walk here. Get a room.”
He said they giggled, grabbed their clothes, and ran off down the trail. Ah well.
Hubby commented to me, “You know watching sex live is not a turn on. It just sorta looks stupid.”
Poor poor man.
In other news, my dad is busy doing dishes, which is the only labor he’s allowed to do. He’s singing Strangers in the Night. I made him lobster. Smiley Face!
***My husband has sent me a postscript:
Read your post. It doesn’t happen often but I do run into naked people in odd places without trying sometimes. I believe you have written in the past about my encounter in Phoenix while running without my contact lenses in. You know with the fake owl and the two naked people in the hot tub.
It was remarkable how out of place and untitillating this latest encounter was. It was actually comical. When observing sex, what makes it interesting is context. That is true with most things but especially sex.
