Did I take a shower today? No
If yes, how long did it go for and what was it like? N/A
If no, what was my reason for not taking a shower?
It was easy enough to find time to shower at Woonona beach the last two days but today was different. I played tennis comp tonight, which put me in a hygienic pickle. Should I shower before playing only to get sweaty afterwards or should I shower once I’ve played regardless of how late it is? I opted for the second option but after getting home at 11pm, there was no way that I was going to shower before sleeping.
Again, this is a break from tradition as showering is normally the first thing I do after getting back from tennis. Even though it would probably only be a 25min round trip to go shower at the beach, it’s enough to put me off.
How clean do I feel on a scale of 1-10 (10 being extremely clean)? Discuss.
I’m still sweaty from tennis, I feel like my hair is greasy, I have sand in more places than I’d like to admit (the tennis courts were sand-based synthetic grass), and I smell. Though I’m basically already half asleep, I’m not looking forward to “dirtying” my clean bed. I have this idea that if I don’t shower before going to bed, my dirtiness will transfer to the sheets. I’m not sure if this is a myth I’ve created or if it’s actually unhygienic to do so but it’s probably not that bad. Anyway, I’ll let you know how I feel tomorrow.
Any comments on what other people thought about my hygiene (e.g. if anyone had made a comment on my appearance, smell etc)
Again, nothing direct but I will try and ask my housemates what they think of my cleanliness before I shower tomorrow.
– Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep. Though I enjoyed my showers for the first two days, today has made me realise that a 20minute walk is easily enough to dissuade me from showering. Very rarely do we make showering a priority, as it’s so readily available, but I wonder where it would stand in the hierarchy of all my daily activities when push comes to shove. Clearly, it does not trump sleeping, tennis comp or writing this blog.
A “smelly” Chris out.
