Bare words

Bare - Lacking the usual or appropriate covering or clothing; naked
The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.

I like to have fun with words. That’s a bit surprising, given that I write books, but there’s always a shocking discovery to be made about people, isn’t there?

Today’s fun is bare. The preferred state of naturists and other clothes-free minded people. (Why don’t that US have a state called Bare, by the way? That would be a perfect state for the people with that state of mind.)

How bare can we go? It’s in the name of certain professions, once they passed through my hands…

First there is the Bare-ister.

Basically this is a naked lawyer. Mostly found in Britain (if at all!).

How much fun would it be to see people in court naked, as they are attempting to uncover the Naked Truth? It would make sense, right?

Next up is the bare-ista.

A person who makes coffee in the nude – and usually enjoys it in the same Bare state. (Hey, USA, is that Bare State in place yet?)

I am one of the many bare-istas that are spread all over the world, and I’m sure that many of the visitors of this blog have the same addiction, to coffee as well as to being bare while making and taking it.

And last, but not least in this line-up:

Bare Ishtar.

Ishtar is the Akkadian counterpart of the Sumerian goddess Inanna. Ishtar’s primary legacy from the Sumerian tradition is the role of fertility figure; she evolved, however, into a more complex character, surrounded in myth by death and disaster, a goddess of contradictory connotations and forces—fire and fire-quenching, rejoicing and tears.

Well, that’s it for now. Lots of bare-ish things to consider. If you feel compelled to add something here on the topic, do let us know. We’re always eager to learn more bare facts. And bring coffee.

Also: as long as the US hasn’t created the Bare State, we’ll stay in our bare state…

Have a good day, everyone!

  1. Re: The US state of Bare. Decades ago, there was a popular song “What did Della Wear?” Unfortunately for nudism, the response was “She wore a brand New Jersey”.
