What the......

I've noticed a trend.....and I just don't get it. Why is it that women over the age of 50 are completely ok with casually walking around the locker room completely naked? And I mean naked...completely naked...nothing even near them....naked.
Every Monday there is a woman who swims at the YMCA that I go to. I've spoken briefly to her, she is a very pleasant woman. She is also a very uninhibited woman. When she comes in from swimming she strips, showers with the curtain open, and then strolls through the locker room to the swimsuit dryer thingie, and strolls back to her locker and quickly dresses. She actually doesn't even use a towel...she air dries. I understand that it is a woman's locker room, we share all the same parts, but...I-Am-Still-A-Stranger.

The Guinness Book of World Records for 2011 is out. I've looked through the pictures for this year. What I want to know is...how would you even know you had this "talent" and are you the one who actually calls Guinness or is there a "talent scout" ?

I went swimming with a new friend a couple years ago and I was trying to be fairly discrete in changing from my swimsuit back into regular clothes - mostly because there was a sign up that said "male attendant working in locker room". She was letting it all hang out and I pointed to the sign and she she said "I'm not going to worry about others - if they want to look, have at it".
I loved that she didn't care.

It has gotten a "little" easier for me over the years with training with TNT because when we start open water swims, we all end up changing right out at the lake in front of each other behind towels (or not). We just try to avert our eyes.

Once I started peeing in my wetsuit, it's all pretty much gone downhill from there ;-)

I will never be comfortable in the buff in those locker rooms! I feel like I have to keep my eyes on the ground!
