28 Days of Writing - Naked and Lost


Let's check in with Reffie and her hiking group one last time.  It looks like the folks in the tent are stirring......


Alice: It feels wonderful to have slept so well last night. 
Joe:  Ugh.  Keep your voice down.  My head hurts.

Alice:  Pffft.  You hogged that rum we had last night.  You have a hangover.
Joe:  Sigh.

Alice:  Um....anybody seen Reffie?

The others start looking around inside the tent, turning out sleeping bags, stepping on legos barefooted, and calling out to her.

Reffie?  REFFIE?

Reffie (or maybe it's Evil Twin) comes into the tent.  "What?"

Alice:  Um...
Joe:  Hubba.
Cat:  ME-OW!

Reffie:  Yeah, I'm naked and lost my clothes in a round of Texas Hold'm downstream.  Does anybody have something I can wear?  Oh, and where did that cat come from?

Our story ends as Reffie and her group sloshed their way down the mountain.  They found the nearest IHOP and ate their fill in pancakes.  As they checked into the Holiday Inn, they made sure there were no rattlesnakes in their rooms.

These people may or may not be nekkid today.

You win Best Decision of the Challenge by moving out of that tent. After losing all your clothes, I can't even imagine how bad the next thing could be.

Now we know why the people in the tents were stirring! :) Girl, you gotta brush up on your poker skills before your next trip!

Oh Reffie, I told you always leave a little something on! It doesn't have to be much, but it really matters...

And this poker business can be very dangerous. I played with a girl once who ended up with nothing but her pearls.

Texas Hold 'Em and gratuitous nudity? Sounds like my kind of night!

I only played strip poker a couple of times in my "fabulous body" days. Let's just say - everyone would let me win now! ROFL ;)

@Linda - I love blueberry pancakes!

@Noname - Uh oh.

@Ziva - Um, no.

@Malissa - I would require a tutor.

@Linda M. - Well, um, I obviously need some practice!

@KZ - I know who to call.

You know, I never put "naked and lost" "my clothes" together when trying to figure out what to write about. Excellent!

Remind me never to play Texas Hold-Em when I go camping.
