naked with the homeless

As many of you know, I started the swimming part of my triathlon training. Anyway, since I didn’t have much time, I decided to just shower at the pool. It was somewhat amazing, as there were a ton of people in the showers but hardly in any in the pool. None of the people in the shower had been in the pool prior. And all of them carried a ton of soap stubs in plastic bags. None of them had any interest in talking to me.

I left the pool rather confused. I know that some people don’t like to talk while standing naked in the shower. But 0 out of 5…come on. Unlocking my bike, I learnt a bit more about my shower pals. They were a group of homeless guys who had parked their shopping carts next to the bike racks. I had no idea.
