I cannot go swimming today. For an embarrassing reason. I have no swim shorts.
Yesterday was very hot. While I carried out my boat related activities I was wearing my swimshorts, my reasoning being that I could go and jump into the camp pool if I got too hot. And I did. It was sweltering.
On one of the bending and heavy lifting exercises, not only did my knees almost give way, but my shorts actually did. Right across the bum. A ragged grin from cheek to cheek. All the worse because I did not have on any underwear. Fortunately I was able to sidle into the caravan and change without anyone noticing. I think. It’s all old guys around here anyway.
My swim shorts are actually football shorts. At the time I bought them I could not find swimwear in my size that I was willing to wear. I am not the sort who can wear budgie smugglers. I guess the fabric in these is not one that stands up well to an almost daily exposure to chlorine. Another lesson learned. Glad it didn’t happen at the pool.
