Naked Guy

Last Friday evening, Susan and I were in the Sulphur Springs park having a picnic (Fried Shrimp Dinner from Blue Sea). Where we were sitting we have a clear view of this house across the river with a attic room and porch. We noticed this guy standing on the attic porch, seemingly naked. We could not tell for sure because the porch railing covered his nether regions but as he turned around and went back in it seemed it was bare butt (or a very light colored Speedo bathing suit or jockey briefs). If he was indeed naked, it was pretty ballsy on his part to do so, considering there was a public park and parking lot across from him.

Just one of the many odd or strange or interesting things we have seen here.

One day as we were stopped at a traffic light at Nebraska and Sligh, this guy was walking across the street in stocking feet, with about 8-inches of sock flopping around the front of his toes. His shoes were in his hands.



What odd things have you seen?

Wow what a question, Scott. This place is full of odd things,,,,,,,,,,the couple who moved from one house to another a block away, utilizing a shopping cart.......unicycle man who dances in the parking lots on his 8 or 10 foot unicycle..........layer woman, who be in August or Dec, wears what seems like an entire wardrobe on her body........Shakespeare (who has not been around lately). The list is endless. It is one of the weirdly great things about living here.

One evening about 4 years ago Alex and I were sitting on the counch watching a movie when there was a knock on the door. I said "come in" Alex said " I 'll get it" and did. When he opened the door there stood a naked man about 20 years old. The naked man said " do you have a towel"?. Alex said "yes" and closed the door and went and got him towel. We never saw the naked man again!

About two weeks ago we were driving south on 275 and were at the Bird St or Broad St overpass and I saw someone pop up from behind the guardrail on the inside of the lane. I didn't see him fully as I was driving, but my fiance said he was naked. All I could say is he was shirtless, but glad I wasn't able to confirm her observation.

the mentally 'challenged' guy who rides around in the golf cart with the clear plastic siding hanging down from the roof and the orange flashing on top.

cheers to anonymous 9:45pm... i wasn't too sure how to describe him. i've been yelled & sung at by him many times. whenever i see him in the distance i change my route, yikes!

Odd? In SH? Crazy. Does a guy crapping in broad daylight in front of your garage count? No? Everyday occurence I suppose...

Maybe someone nominating Urban ####### Fitness as Best Gym is pretty odd. I am sensing some favoritism, since I have never seen a single patron in or outside of that place.

Oddities. I did see a guy wearing a cape, riding a very decorated bicycle the other day.

Was the guy worth looking at?

Ben said...

Yeah. He also had on some SWEET sunglasses. Worth taking a picture of. I should tote a camera with me everywhere like our dear SH Blog master just on the hopes of seeing him again.

I saw two homeless guys fellating each other in the grassy area of the KNK parking lot on MLK/Nebraska in the middle of a Sunday afternoon not long ago.

My wife had to point it out to me, and I was at first sure she was just messing with me.

Nope ...

fellating? that's a good one. i once caught a tranny hooker "fellating" a john in the empty lot next to the dis and dat...that was not so much fun...for all parties involved. my eyes, my eyes! that's one of those things you can never take back.

When we first moved here, 10 years ago, we had fat Elvis living on our street. His 5ft 10in 250lbs+ self would do yard work wearing a wife-beater, way to short cut-off jean shorts, gold sunglasses and the most perfect jet black elvis doo every weekend. I miss the fat Elvis.

I was leaving for work one morning and saw Cathy, the no tooth prostitute that looks like she is 70 totally naked giving herself a sponge bath in my neighbors yard. UGH

All these stories put a different twist on the phrase "There are eight million stories in the Naked City. This has been one of them."

This should be rephrased "There are eight million naked stories in the City"

By the way, that expression is the tagline for the TV series
Naked City

how about finding 14 used blow-up dolls in the crawlspace above a closet at the house on the corner of nebraska and north bay? woohoo, that was fun!

or how about the guy that used to live behind me? he was a nudist and one day i went out to my back yard and there he was, in his back yard using a circular saw, cutting wood ... NAKED. (gee, think that maybe an athletic "cup" might have been a good safety feature right about then) ... I actually got to be pretty good friends with him and his wife. She was the most CONSERVATIVE person i ever met ... what a pair. but funny thing is, he'd mow his lawn naked, and sometimes when we'd both be working in our yards at the same time, we'd frequently have very normal, casual neighbor conversation at the fence ... all the while he's standing there in the clothes God gave him.

Oh, and can I ever forget the time while walking my dogs i came upon a prostitute and her "john" doing it on a disgusting old mattress in the grassy field near genessee and nebraska? it was around lunchtime. I lost my appetite.

I could write a book on the weird stuff I've seen around here. it would probably be a best-seller. gotta love this place!!!
