Its 3am but we're at the beach anyway, because she knows I've had a rough week, made a tough decision and we haven't talked for a while. I jokingly suggest a skinny dip but settle for a paddle. I take my trousers off anyway because I can't be arsed rolling them up. I figure what the hell, the shirt's coming off too. I'm waist deep now and am seriously considering removing the boxers. I turn round. She is standing by the shore, fully clothed. "its too cold!" she says. The boxers come off. She's right. But worth it.
