So I’m in the shower, and I’m thinking about how I can’t remember the last time I shaved my legs. Not that I really care at the moment. It’s January. It’s not like my legs are hanging out in public. But I’m getting ready to go to a conference for work. Which means a hotel. And you may recall that one of the things I frequently do when I’m at a hotel is shave my legs.
And I’m pretty sure I’ll want to shave my legs because I think there’s a pool. And if there’s a pool, I’ll want to use it. Swimsuit = shaved legs. Of course, if I were a conservative Muslim, I could just wear one of those full-body swimsuits and no one would see my legs anyway.
Which made me think about how new uniforms have allowed women from conservative Muslim countries to compete in the Olympics in so many new sports.
Which made me think about what track athletes wear these days. I mean, think about the uniforms the first female track athletes wore: skirts and blouses! Today? Practically underwear.
Which made me think that in a few more decades, athletes in the modern Olympics might be back to wearing what athletes in the ancient Olympics wore.
That’s right. From shaving my legs to nude Olympic athletes, all in the time span it took me to shower. Welcome to my brain.
