If you're the redhead who swam to my left today between 1:30 and 2:20, call me. Please.

Today I was swimming next to a young woman who wore shorts on top of her one-piece bathing suit. When we both stopped to rest at the side, I asked her if her shorts, floppy as they were, slowed her down. No, she said and then asked me if my baggy shorts slowed me down. I said yes, a bit, but that I had to wear them. She then said with what I still think was a bit of coquetry in her voice, it's unfair that you must wear shorts and I don't. And before I could utter the obvious rejoinder--that being, and it is a crying shame that you must cover your top and I have no such obligation--she swam off.
