Playing In The Mud On The Park.
I've had a really nice time on the park today. The park is fairly local, and last weekend there was a really big cyclocross event there. This has caused the ground to be very churned up and in places the park is just a sea of mud! I saw some pictures of the event in the local newspaper and this is what made me decide to visit for a play! When I arrived at the park I was ecstatic to discover that it was very quiet, just the odd distant dogwalker in evidence. I was even more ecstatic to see the true extent of the mud! It was wonderfully thick and wet, a very obvious track winding around the park where hundreds of off road cyclists had stirred it all up. Some rain in the week had made it lovely! I decided to try and walk around the circuit. As I started out, I immediately revelled in the squelchy feeling! It varied from maybe one to four inches in depth. I was wearing normal clothes, I hadn't dressed up in any way, just preferring smartish tight black jeans with ballet-type pumps (also black) and socks. The deeper patches of mud came over the sides of my pumps and coated my socks. It felt amazing, it's been a while since I've done any "mudding!" After a few hundred metres of squelching along, I came to a hilly section, and the mud got slightly deeper. It was now covering the bottoms of my jeans, and, in a moment of extreme pleasure, my pumps stuck in the mud and I stepped into the lovely ooze in my socks! It was wonderfully exciting to feel the cold wet gunge soaking into the thin fabric. My socks were a favourite pair of black ankle socks with vibrant turquoise toes and heels. I really enjoyed the contrast of the shiny brown mud against the brightly coloured toes of the socks! I pushed a stick into the mud next to my pumps so that I'd know where they were, and continued with only socks on my feet. I reached the top of a steep hill after some slipping and sliding around. When I tried to walk down the other side, I slipped over! I ended up on my bum, sliding down a muddy slope! I landed in some deeper, wet mud at the bottom with a splat. I was enjoying myself immensely, but had got far muddier than I'd planned to! I had no more clothes with me. I squelched back to my shoes, pulled them out of the mud, and put my filthy socked feet into them. I then made the short trip home, looking a right state! I got some odd looks from the few people I saw, but I actually find being caked in slop in public a bit of a turn on! Weird but true!
