Dipping One's Nipples In The River

I know , I know, it's shameless but I promise to get to the nipple thing in a moment
It's a beautiful day today, warm and sunny.
The Prof is still somewhat weakened by his shitty experience and is working in his office with the heating full blast and with coffee on tap, me and the animals have been outside .
In the garden the Welsh poppies are in flower and look glorious

The garden Welsh Poppies

With the day so warm , I took the dogs out along the only major river near us, which is the River Elwy at St Asaph. You have to be careful with Bulldogs in hot weather for they over heat dreadfully so the riverside is ideal for Winnie, who has a novel way of cooling down when things get tough.
She walks into the Water and when the cold water reaches nipple height ( which for Winnie is only a few inches off the ground) she stands there smacking her chops with a contented look upon her face.
Nipples must lose heat better than anywhere me thinks!
I didnt have my ipad on me today to record this behaviour but a passing woman with a constipated Yorkshire terrier  did stop and took a photo with her smart phone.
Perhaps she was jealous?
Women readers who may enjoy a quick " nipple dunk" may be able to help me here?

The River Elwy at St Asaph

Anyhow , I've also realised that I am self appointed village sad sack as today was the day that I went
around the two village noticeboards with my trusty allen key and celotape in order to tidy the notices
up. I know it's nothing to do with me but it appeals to my " small town " sensibilities




Anyhow , I'll leave you with a movie recommendation .
Go and see the film X+Y
It's a sweet film which tells the story of  Nathan ( Asa Butterfield) a teenage mathematics genius who lives for the day to be picked to represent Britain in the International Mathamatic Olympiad .
Nathan has autism , and cannot relate physically and socially to his recently widowed mother ( Sally Hawkins) nor to his fellow students and teachers, but salvation appears for both mother and son with the arrival of a slovenly and depressed home teacher  ( Rafe Small) who despite having multiple sclerosis, reluctantly agrees to school Nathan in preparation for the Olympiad finals .

Asa Butterfield and Sally Hawkins 

This is a little gem of a movie, made even better by some wonderful performances  by the three leads. 
Butterfield is heartbreaking as a boy who only makes sense of a world of numbers and fractions  as is 
Hawkins who is desperate to be able to break through to her son as both are grieving for a much 
loved husband and father, but it is Rafe Small's  wisecracking turn as the overwhelmingly depressed mentor that  almost steals the film.
Unfortunately,  the film plumps for a sentimental ending where  mother and son contact  emotionally ( a slightly  unrealistic situation for a deeply austic boy to be able to do)  but I have to say it did please me through the tears! 
A cracking movie 8/10

  2. Never had the opportunity to dunk just my nipples in cold water.....the logistics of trying it baffles me.

  3. I know that when I wade into cold water, when I get to the nipple area (still more than a few inches off the ground, thank you very much!) I pause before I plunge in farther. They are very sensitive, as are yours, I feel certain. This is the way of nipples.

  5. I am not sure if it is the nipple or just the underside area of Winnie.
    When Son walks the dog in the summer or they run around outside here, they get hot. Even walking The Square Ones early morning or late even it can still be in the 90's.
    So the first thing The Square Ones do when coming in is to lay down flat out, legs extended on the cool tile floor and cool off. Get the tummy and chest cool. It is their fastest way to cool off.
    Between Winnie and The Square Ones who each are about 5 inches off the ground, they get very hot so close to the ground.
    Love that you can just see the Yorkie and know it was constipated !
    You are a hoot !

    cheers, parsnip

  6. What Ms Moon said...

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think Winnie is actually cooling her feet and legs! Really, parsnip's explanation makes sense to me.

    "Self-appointed village sad sack" made me smile! I have the urge to straighten up wherever I go; pity I don't have that kind of energy more often at home ...

  8. My fanny reaches the water first and takes my breath away John. What happens when the nipples reach I couldn't be sure as I am not yet in recovery from the first hit.xx

    3. I agree Rachel, you have to cope with the fanny getting wet first . Luckily my nipples are still sitting above that region....

    4. Well there wouldn't be if your fanny is deep under freezing water.

    5. But watch out for freashwater crabs

    6. Well it's not as if we go about on all fours like a bloody dog is it....

    7. Ermmmm.... is that the American fanny or the Brit one.. either way... brrrrrrrrrr

      Delete
    8. We call the cold water hitting the fanny area the OOO zone, it's ok if you're in a wetsuit as it is socially acceptable to have a wee, is that too much information ?

      Delete
    9. Cherie's comment makes me realise your foreign readers may be misunderstanding the true horror of your reports on Winnie's urges.

      I knew an American girl rather well once, and that particular language difference did cause a little confusion on one occasion, but it was all sorted out amicably in the end.

  9. I think you should encourage Winnie to dip her nether regions into the water - cleansing and cold water to calm 'it' down! That film sounds good . I like the talented Timothy Spall so I guess I would like to watch his son Rafe Spall acting too.

  10. I can't get beyond the ankle level where we live because the water is so blooming cold, even in the summer. We still have snow melt into the local rivers up here in north of Scotland!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Forgot to add that someone we know did a sponsored 'dip' up here at Christmas and commented afterwards that it would be Easter before his balls came back down!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I, too, like Winnie, might wade into the river on a hot day up to my nipples; I think it's a brilliant idea.
    And thanks for the tip on the movie. I hadn't heard of it, but love Sallie Hawkins!

    1. You have to remember she has 14 nipples ( i think)
      And all have sagged ........

    2. 14 nipples...

      Just imagine... We'd need longer evenings...

  13. I think the film takes after the videos of Beautiful Young Minds on YouTube specifically the boy Daniel Lightwing. The videos are fascinating!

  14. I was thinking all along that you were about to dunk your nipples in the river!!
    Well, at least Winnie got some relief.

  15. Can't answer this, don't have any sensation in my nipples... but what Rachel said about the cold water hitting the nether regions. Yes.

    Oh, and it's all your fault John.

    1. It's all your fault, and I said so on my blog too.

      Oh, the dead nipples. Not your fault but it amuses me to lay that at your feet as well.

  16. uh, my nipples like warm water only! :)

  18. Have you forgotten your recent post about doing a poo behind the shed John? Nipple posts are pretty conservative really .....

  19. Well icing them makes them perky...

    The movie sounds lovely. I adored Sally Hawkins in Persuasion.

  20. I can confirm Ms Moon's comment. When I go swimming in the sea I have developed the habit of walking into up to my belly, then I turn around so that my back is facing into the waves. Then I fall into the water back first so that my nipples are the last to go under. Silly but it works for me. And onlookers are mildly amused.

  21. When cold water hits the male apparatus the singular appendage retreats like a mouse backing quickly into its hole and the double dumplings tighten into hard little acorns (by the way). I prefer the effects of warm water as I sink into a bath.

  22. Cold wet nipples doesn't do it fo me, John, not in any way, shape or form.
    Pretty flowers that you have there!

  23. Dillon does that dipping in the water all the time & gets quite distressed if he overheats and can't cool down.

    I don't think he's cooling his nipples, I think he's cooling his boy's bits !

  24. I presume you mean Rafe Spall? Son of Timothy?

  25. Walking at St Asaph? Isnt there a cathedral there? It is a place I have always fancied visiting for some reason.
    You certainly are a one for a challenging headline.

  26. I read your blog last night, especially the 'dipping of nipples in the water' bit. For some reason it stuck in my mind all night. Gave me some quite weird dreams!

  27. Frustratingly, "x+y" seems to have been and gone in Sheffield. To tell you the truth, I confused it with the romantic American drivel "x/y" and that's why I didn't go. Should have done more research. As for female nipples, from my purely aesthetic perspective, they are surely one (or two?) of God's finest creations.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yep, Suky is another one who goes in nipple deep (also only a couple of inches off the ground) when the heat gets too much for her.

    I've never tried it myself, too scared of drowning ;-)

  29. I'll check Netflix for the movie. I love stories about mathematicians.

    Love,
