Just a short one today…pun completely intended…..
One of my barding adventures in Strasbourg led me to the water – ie. the swimming pool – and I found myself the answer to a mystery I’ve been told about in the past….the reason every man in France wears tiny bathing suit.
Quite plain and simple really. It’s a rule that all the swimming pools have that no man is permitted to wear anything loose or even a board short type of swimsuit. The rationale is supposedly for hygienic reasons. If you come into a pool wearing shorts you just wore outside, you bring everything those shorts have been through with it…which makes sense.
However…I beg the question……What if a man spent his day wandering around in public in a pair of these beauties seen below, and then went swimming? Would he be rejected at the pool, or just everywhere else he went in his day?
And now….deep thoughts…..
I know, it’s no Caramilk sercret, or maybe it will be to some of you…in any regard, I am sure this will be helpful to someone in the future in their travels to France, or their understanding of how the world works.
If you’re going to swim in a pool in France, BRING SOMETHIN’ TIGHT! YEOWW!!
