Naked ambition

So I am still alive, I'm just sick so really all I want to do is curl up into the fetal position, but instead I'm working. I keep trying to take sick days, but work keeps sucking me in. Why can't I just win the lottery so I can just be a lazy piece? And also give to charity so I don't feel bad about myself?

Anyway, I'm working on a couple posts, I promise, but I just feel like crap so I'm going to tell you a quick story. Sunday morning after the wedding, my sister, Drew and I were getting ready to go to NYC to visit our friend, Sudha. Since my parents and my grandparents had left earlier in the morning, we used their rooms so we could each have a different room to get ready. Drew was in my grandparents' room. He got undressed, turned on the shower and then heard voices outside the room. He took 2 steps out of the bathroom to see if he could figure out who it was...and was suddenly face to face with my aunt. Face to naked face. As a reflex, he covered his junk with his hands and then sidestepped back into the bathroom. Then he came out a few seconds later with a towel on.

Our questions for him:

1. Why did you come out of the bathroom naked if you heard voices? Answer: I thought it could be you two girls.

2. That answer makes no sense if you thought Sarah was there. Why would you come out naked if you thought your sister in law was there, sicko? Answer: No I mean I thought you two were outside of the room and needed me for something.

3. You still don't make sense. Anyway, what did our aunt do? Answer: Nothing.

4. What did you say when you came out of the bathroom the second time-after "the incident"? Answer: We pretended like nothing happened. I think, in retrospect, that made it more awkward. I should've made a joke. Goddammit your aunt saw me naked.

Us: "Well she's probably the right one to have this happen in front of. I mean we don't get to see her too often since she lives so far away."
Drew, smarmily: "I have a feeling after this, we'll be seeing a lot more of her."
Us: "Ahahahahaha-ew."

This was a bizarre decision any way you look at it. Especially if you look down (at Drew's junk).
