Swimming in My Bathrobe
An embarrassingly funny situation which happened a long, long time ago.

Fresh from college, I decided to venture into a bigger city and work there. In the big city I was able to rent a room in which I share with someone from the province where I came from and this story revolves around our (mis)adventure in the big city. Well one day she got this invitation from a suitor of hers to go swimming and she wanted me to come along with her. Of course I said no for various reasons, one of them being my aversion towards wearing a bathing suit. I had never worn one before for I thought I’d look like a lizard in bathing suit if I forced myself. What came out of my mouth for my reason was, I didn’t have a swimsuit so I could not go with her.I didn’t expect the next thing that happened. She brought out about 10 swimsuits from her closet for me to choose from! I felt like dying at that moment since it meant that there was no escaping my wearing a bathing suit. Nevertheless, I did try on almost all the suits and I settled on one piece that didn’t emphasize my lack of flesh in the most important areas. (lol) So I had to drag myself to accompany this roommate of mine who was probably considering this guy to be her boyfriend and she needed me to keep score. Well, when we reached the beach, around 10 am, I immediately saw that the place was jampacked. There were lots of people and this made me loathe the idea of showing up in bathing suit for all to see. So I whispered to my friend that we had to wait for those people to leave the place before we hit the beach. She agreed. By 2:00 pm, some people had already started to leave but I noticed a group of men who were drinking very close to where we were. They were obviously waiting for that time when we would remove the robes, that’s what I thought. By 3:00, the suitor was already showing some signs of anger because he’d been dying and waiting for us to join him at the beach. But no matter how hard I tried to push my friend to go ahead and join the guy, she stayed put and waited for me to join her. Now I was really watching those remaining guys who did not seem to mind that the day was almost ending for they seemed to be waiting for something which I could easily guess. Because our guy companion was already restless, a crazy idea came to mind to which my friend easily agreed. But we had to let the guy companion be part of the plan for he was supposed to do a very important task of bringing or carrying our robes back after we had swum. The guy also agreed. So both my friend and I decided to go to the sea where we would remove our bathrobes when the water was already waist-deep so people or strangers wouldn’t be oogling on us in bathing suits. Alas, since my friend was shorter than I am, the water had reached her shoulder level so she could not do anything but swim. I did the same thing. We were both swimming in our bathrobes! LOL. The guy had to carry back two wet bathrobes.
