Peeper’s Delight (Indecent Exposure)

When someone from Medicine Hat thinks about recreational things to do in town, it is not out of the ordinary to think of the South Saskatchewan River and all it has to offer. But how much fun is too fun? Enter the Peeper’s Delight and Indecent Exposure.

On the night of Thursday, August 19th, I was doing some running to prepare for the Bustin’ Loose 10km Race. I ran from the northern edge of downtown, along River Road, past the YMCA, and was returning when I noticed something odd: A man standing and looking at the river.

While I have seen this before, the odd thing was that he appeared to be on his tip toes on the edge of the sidewalk. He was not walking, and as I drew closer, his button-up shirt appeared to be unbuttoned. I could not see what he was looking at, so I continued to jog by. As I did, he must have realized he was idling, so he shuffled along the sidewalk in the opposite direction. Curious, I looked back and saw he had stopped again and was still peering over the edge. Then I saw why: Two people in the river, shoulder deep, embracing, and who knows what else? Though, he might know what else…

    From what I have seen of the condition of the river this summer I would definitely call submerging any part of the body in the water Indecent Exposure.

    I was hoping for a grainy cell phone pic at the very least. I mean we’ve all had sex in the river at some point right? …right?

    @Vaughn: Last I checked (I’ve never checked, but I assume), there wasn’t a nuclear reactors in Medicine Hat. Unless you meant you’re just going to order some online and play in the bathtub or something…

    @Justin: If I had my cellphone at the time I would totally have taken a photo for hilarity purposes.
