I must be more attractive than I thought.
Or maybe it’s my glowing personality.
Either way, I’m bewildered by my locker room experience today.
Let me back up and tell you the story. Then you can be the judge.
After swim practice today I showered in the locker room. The other female swimmers were showering as well, chatting up their various plans for the week.
Once I finished showering I dried off by twisting a towel around my head and used a separate towel to wrap around my body. The second towel covered me from my chest to mid thigh. I stepped out of the shower stall and walked to the mirrors where I began laying out my things – lotion, brush, clothes.
I noticed my teammate Lynnae come walking around the corner from the showers. She had a towel wrapped around her and was carrying her caddy of shampoo products.
I smiled at her and went back to laying out my things.
As Lynnae walked past me she squeezed my right bum cheek, smiled at me in the mirror, and kept walking.
What the hell just happened here? I thought.
Aren’t teammates suppose to pat each others’ bums, not squeeze them? At least that’s what I think I’ve always seen basketball players on tv do?
Swimmers, they never even pat. Basketball & baseball players, yes.
I reiterate, swimmers NEVER!
Was I just violated?
Did I just get to second base with my 57 year old teammate?
