    In the madness of moving house at the beginning of this month for some reason I threw out all my gym towels. Grrrr. And I want to get there early in the morning. Arrrggh!

    Well Redhead.. you can do one of three things.... 1) Go to a store and buy one 2) Ask the gym for a loaner, even if you have to pay a little or 3) Borrow one from a cute guy in the locker room. That might be a good one.. you could tell us about what happens!

    Paper towels - how funny! I thought I was the only guy who sometimes had to resort to paper towels - when I forgot my towel. Glad to know I"m not the only one. They work ok - sort of! And yes, guys do look cross-eyed at you when they see you drying off with paper - but what the hell?

    Shake dry, use a blow dryer, or stand under the air hand dryer?

    Umm..I just get in the car and clean up at home, maybe just throw a sweatshirt on (ok, the gym is only 5 minutes from my house, so I could even go home and get a towel)

    Which is why i never need a towel, LOL.

    wait till a relatively clean looking guy goes to take his shower and then use his shirt.

    or stand outside the showers and use someone elses towel real quick while they wash their hair.

    or run really fast back and forth until the water dries up.

    or just stand there naked in front of your locker, dripping wet and say "FUCK! I forgot my towel!" and see if anyone offers you one. I usually carry and extra cause I often do two-a-days.

    the possibilities are endless...

    I keep a stadium blanket in the car. lol. If worse came to worse I suppose I could use that! If it was only the gym towels that you threw out, take a regular bath towl.

    Switch your gym membership to LifeTime Fitness where you don't have to bring your own towel since LifeTime Fitness provides the towels for you.

    Redhead, how on earth could such a simple, nay, banal post elicit so many responses. And, AND, degenerate so quickly to ways in which one might turn it to ones advantage?! You people are insane....

    The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a few things to say on the subject of towels.
    A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to- hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
    More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

    Thanks Gigaram! icon_smile.gif

    By the way! I have another alternative... dry off on some really hairy guy. This can serve two purposes, actually, getting you dryer and exfolliation. icon_twisted.gif

    i'm... confused.

    your gyms don't have towels?

    i've never belonged to a gym (or even heard of one) that didn't have towels.

    maybe it's just me. icon_smile.gif

    I suppose you could air dry yourself by scampering about the locker room, flapping your arms. Let us know what kind of reaction that elicits, please.

    that sounds kinda hot.

    so can't you just dry yourself off with the sawdust?

    Redhead guy, I forget my towel often. I usually throw myself at the mercy of the front desk, lean in close and say something like "Excuse me, I'm such an idiot. I forgot my towel, could you possibly loan me one.please." If it's a girl, she thinks "oh, this poor old geezer thinks I'm hot, and he's trying to hit on me. Oh well I'll just be nice". and she hands me a towel.
    If it's a guy, he thinks "Jesus Christ, this old homo thinks I'm hot. EEEWWW. and he steps back and hands me a towel.
    Probably wouldn't work for you tho. They'd probably just try to go home with you. icon_wink.gif
