Public Pools

My Mum has a swimming friend with whom she goes swimming. Today she took me, too.
But very unfortunately, it was warm-bathing-day (where the pool is just that wee bit warmer than usual) and it was seniors-discount-day ...
Well, I do like older people - They are swimming like a submarine with their head sticking out like a telescope and the girls are wearing beautiful bathing caps which looked soo retro. Just that it wasn't the latest fashion, those ladies where old for real (vintage for life). And so were their bathing suits and caps, their towels and feet, their hair and hairdos, just everything. I realized that I was swimming in a soup of chlorine and those people were like the soggy kind of croutons you'll find in your pot noodles the morning after a long night out.
After that, I slowly turned towards the stairs, got out of the water, into the shower, got dressed and drove home. And at home, I had another shower.
