once upon a time, a very long time ago, i rolled naked in the snow. 

i lived in a suburban town north of New York City, in a ground-floor 
apartment that had a back door opening onto an irregularly shaped cement 
"courtyard" area behind the building. sometimes in the summertime we'd
up a barbecue grill out there and pretend we were having a cookout. but 
this was wintertime.

it was about three in the morning, and it had been snowing steadily
midafternoon. i don't remember why i was still up at that hour, but i
sitting in the kitchen wearing only a disreputable terrycloth bathrobe, 
looking out the back door at the snowdrifts accumulating in the
because of the weather and the lateness of the hour, not a living soul
out and about in the town.

suddenly i was seized by a strange whim. i quickly slipped out of my
and slippers and darted out the back door into the courtyard. i flung 
myself, completely naked, into the snowdrifts and rolled in them.

at first it was exhilarating. the sudden stimulus of cold against my
skin was so intense it was erotic. in addition, there was an acute 
awareness of breaking taboos - i'm outdoors! in the snow! in public!
no clothes on! my whole body was tingling with the physical and

alas, after a few moments it just felt wet and cold. shivering, i dashed 
back inside where it was warm.
