    Default feel, feel me, feeling

    Hello,
    It just came into mind

    Fictional example:
    You are on a beach and have clothes on.
    Someone (let's say a girl) asks:
    Why don't you undress?
    And your answer is:
    Sorry, I don't feel sexy today.
    Is the answer grammatically right?

    I'm not sure if it could be something like:
    Sorry, I'm not feeling sexy today, I doubt it because of the today.
    And what about:
    Sorry, I don't feel me sexy today. - I doubt that's good English.

    Cheers!

    It's fine to say either of the first two, but we'd never say, "I don't feel me sexy today."

    A small point......

    The original question would be more likely to be, "Why don't you take your clothes (or "things") off?"

    The first two are gramatically correct, but not something that would normally be said at a public beach.
