Someone said :
if only you didn't have dry yourself have a shower.
About a year ago, I was in the shower at the local pool after a Sunday-morning swim. A man was trying to get his young daughter to have a post-swim shower but she was resisting. He was doing the full 'positive parenting' mularkey: engaging in dialogue, not ordering her, explaining to her that she needed to rinse the swimming pool water off her. He asked her why she did not want to take a shower. "Because I'll get wet" came back the reply.
