Ninety-nine per cent of the time, you know where your towel is.
One time in one-hundred you are a deluded frood, and you only think you know where it is.
You look in the spot where you keep it, and your posture crumbles. You realise you will soon face a trade off between not showering, and soaking the moisture droplets from your body using the sweaty garments you just rode in wearing.
BONUS TIP: The absorptive capacity of pre-perspired lycra is worse than that of wool, which is worse than that of cotton.
If the only cotton you have is a pair of stinky socks, you are likely to end up rubbing them all over your limbs, torso, behind and junk. Please, please, dry your face first.
