I was watching ‘Naked and Afraid’.

I would sneak into that van every night

Since the pandemic has begun, I have been spending a lot of time in my apartment. I have been watching some of the oddest shows. I didn’t assume they had so several reality shows on the local and syndicated channels. I came across a show called ‘Naked and Afraid’. After watching the show for twenty minutes and making fun of it for more than nine minutes, I decided it should have been called ‘Naked and Ridiculously Stupid’. Two complete strangers, a single man and a single man, out in the middle of nowhere, with no clothing and no supplies. They weren’t even getting paid. This was simply so they could prove something to themselves. I would rather prove something to myself in my own home. I could always turn off the a/c or furnace and go without heating or cooling for a couple mornings. I could see if I could go without comfort for any amount of time. I would never go out in the middle of nowhere, with a unusual guy that is naked. You assume they aren’t alone. Someone is taking all those pictures out there. I’m sure they have portable a/cs to keep them comfortable. I wonder if they don’t have trailers that are all decked out with everything they need, including the AC. I would sneak into that van every night. To heck with the bugs, snakes and other slimy things that are out there; I would rather be dressed and comfortable. I assume fear enough, just thinking about going without my air purification plan in the loft or forgetting my mask when I open the front door.
