Do you bother to wear clothes when doing laundry, scrubing the floors, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, dusting, or making the bed? Why bother with clothes if no one else is home? It's just something else to wash tomorrow.

My wife thought this was a picture of me that she found on the internet, but I pointed out that the guy doesn't have great looking cyclist's legs and no tan lines.

Well, when/if I'm of the same directive, I've got to wear undershorts;
I might bang into the sink or something.

Wear cloths. Things can be embarssing when company drops in.

Naked- you don't have cloths on.

Nekkid- you don't have cloths on AND you're up to something.

I work from home so I usually sit around in my home-office in a t-shirt and boxer shorts all day long until I go out for my ride... and then I just wear essentially the equivalent except in lycra. I admit I'd probably sit around naked too except then I'd have to do the mad-dash scramble to pull on clothes if the doorbell rang and someone dropped by.

Cloths might not cover enough.
Clothes would probably do the trick (although some clothes are smaller than cloths).

I never have company drop by during the day. If the UPS guys shows up with a package (bike stuff usually ) I just slip on a pair of shorts and T-shirt.

I often wear an apron when doing any cooking to prevent getting burned. OUCH!!
I also have to be careful when doing the ironing.

Ain't no such thing as sanitary: Remember that if germs can travel throught 14 layers of toilet paper, then, by GAWD, they're running through anything yer wearing, if'n its fabric!

My daughter says she was taught the "14 layers" bit in health class. . .Honest!

I suppose a shrink might say I have self-image problems, but I don't like walking around naked, even in privacy. It just doesn't seem right.

Sanitation is overrated. While the bathroom is an exception, I prefer not to take sanitation too far (you should wash your hands before dinner if it affects the flavor, not for health ). Regular exposure to germs in small amounts strengthens the immune system. Once you walk out of your spotless house with HEPA Overpressure filtration augmented by UV sterilization and step into the less gentle real world to pick up some more Evian, it can be a bit of a shock to the T-cells.

Most of you have probably also heard that the average computer keyboard has several times the level of bacteria as the average toilet seat because of cleaning priorities. I have to admit, though, I'd rather be spending time with cookie crumb bugs than with E-coli.

Housewives and especially house-husbands don't have time to sit, except in front of the computer.
Can't iron, do laundry, mop the kitchen, vacuum, make the bed, dust, etc. while sitting down.

We should do unto others as we would have them do unto us. So husbands need to wear what they want the wife to wear if she were staying at home.

That means I should be wearing a little French maid skirt with no undies and do lots of bending over to pick up stuff.

I'll have to check with the wife to see what she thinks.....

I betcha the only reason you don't like it is because you never got used to it! Give it a couple of tries at least.

The catch is, are you using the keyboard after not wasing your hands after using the head? If you are, you are not hanging with ONLY cookie crumb bugs when you use your keyboard. . .!

And then there are some (or many) of us who are sporting wireless LANs and laptop computers in the house... I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to take things in this context to its logical conclusion.
