The Diva and I are walking home from summer camp. It is a humid but breezy and overcast day.
A man drives by and yells out his window, "I've seen a lot of you today young lady."
The Diva and I look at each other. There is no one else walking.
"Do you know who he is talking to?"
We walk farther up the street. Again he says, "I have seen a lot of you today young lady."
I now know that he is talking to us though I am not sure why. Thus I shout something in return.
The Diva and I watch to see where he goes. We are quite close to our neighborhood.
"I have been walking a lot today," I tell her, "perhaps he has seen me?"
"Look, he turned into our neighborhood!"
My mind is now racing. Was I nude in front of the windows this morning? No, the AC is on so the blinds are shut. But I was out on the balcony in a shirt and underwear watering a sunflower.
Just how much of me has he seen?!
Aloud I mention something about hoping that he doesn't live across from us.
The Diva, who walks around in little to nothing as much as I do, laughs. This is hilarious. "Haven't you ever thought about that before?"
"I honestly don't care... well, I didn't"
Unless it is extremely hot, cold, or rainy, my windows (shades and all) are kept open. I live on the top two floors of a building in a fairly hidden area. I simply like the fresh air and natural light.
In my mid-twenties I lived at the top of buildings. I started leaving my windows and shades open as there was no one who could see into the apartments. And, to be honest, I just stopped caring if they did look.
My attitude has not changed.
We walked around the neighborhood to see if we could find the car. We found two that matched the model, make, and color. One two streets over and one parked at the buildings across a grassy area from ours. So the question is - which car was his? Have I been giving someone a free "look" without realizing it?
Yet, faced with the reality that the guy across the grassy area from me probably just commented on how much he has seen me lately...
Next time I will give him a real show!
