Double Exposure

I know I said in yesterday’s post that I don’t normally disrobe in public, but . . .

I spent so much time writing yesterday’s post that I was almost late for my friend, Jamie’s, Bridal Shower. I bathed, got dressed and put on my make-up in record time, then I flew out of the house. I arrived at the Bridal Shower simultaneously with two of my colleagues, and behind a crowd of other people. We walked into the house talking and laughing. I said hello to the Bride-to-be, but kept moving. She had tons of people to greet and since I see her daily, I figured I’d just get out of the way — except she exclaimed, “Your shirt!” and reached through the crowd in the foyer to grab the right side seam of my blouse. She jerked me toward her.

I was wearing my full circle denim skirt and a cute princess-style red-plaid cotton blouse with white pearl snaps. It is one of my favorite outfits and I wear it often. Jamie had seen it several times, so I didn’t know what she was so excited about.

I was quite startled by her sudden attack on my clothes and lost my balance. I almost fell into her, and before I realized she was trying to whisper something in my ear, I jerked away. At this point I had several thoughts: “Why is she pulling on my clothes?” “It’s impolite to whisper in public.” And, “I feel a draft.” At the same time what she’d said registered clearly, “Your blouse is on wrong side out.”

I looked down. Suzanne, the friend I’d come through the door with, looked down as well. I gasped in shock. She cracked up laughing. Jamie was trying to push me down the hall. She was giggling, too, and we’d caught everybody’s attention. Rather, I had caught everybody’s attention. You see, when Jamie tugged on my clothes so insistently (grabbing the exposed tags) she’d unsnapped my blouse all the way up the front.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. First you started out with wearing food on your clothing, now you just decide you don’t want to wear any at all??? It sounds like you have been hanging around the wrong crowd of people. SMILES :o)

  2. I hear in Hawaii you do not need to wear much clothing anyway so you are in luck!

  3. Quilly, you’ve got to wait just a little longer. I’m sure there is a nude beach SOMEWHERE in Hawaii. There’s no reason to strip at the grocery store and a bridal shower! I don’t care if you do live in Sin City! 😉

  4. fashionista — if I were in a closet that would be fine!
    Melli — they’d pay me more to put my clothes back on.
    Angela — I didn’t decide. Neither time did my clothing come off of me willingly!
    Lori — so, when what little I am wearing gets ripped off of me I can be even more embarassed. Great.
    Brig — see my comment to Melli.

  5. I don’t know, milady, you keep insisting that folk want you to stay dressed, but it sure seems like that’s not what those around you are seeking …

  6. OC — yes, well, after Jamie exposed me to the world (ok, only 20 or so members of it) she almost killed me shoving me down the hall toward the bathroom.

  7. See Quilly, the way I see it…you’ve been doing such an awesome job with exercising and dieting that your subconscious was just dying to show off your new bod to the rest of the world. 😉

  8. Nessa — would that it was a dream!

    PolonaI didn’t do any of it! I was an innocent victim.

    Doug — Well, it can stay here. I’m leaving, remember?

    SilverN — thanks. I don’t believe that for a second, but thanks.

  9. I’d like to introduce you to BUTTONS. They are a little harder to undo. 😉

    Hubby has a shirt that does up with press studs in the front. I insist he wears it all the time because I enjoy randomly popping it undone! He says it was amusing the first 20 times…

  10. Stop it right now! What would your mother say? You did remember your underwear didn’t you?

    You even inspire “comments” that are hilarious.

    I laughed so hard my mouth hurts…………..Judy

  12. Judy — you were serious about posting that comment weren’t you? And when I reported to OC what happened, I said, “Thankfully I was wearing my new bra!” You can ask him for verification on that.

  13. been there/done that/found a tee shirt to replace the one that was torn by my own “well meaning” friend. too funny! 🙂
