I once threatened to go swimming in speedos

Posted by Simon on March 13, 2010

It was just a couple of weeks ago, in fact. My wife and I and a friend were emailing about going to family swim after our daughter’s lesson. Anyway, after my threat, my wife went to her colleague’s (Ruth, also a friend of ours) desk and commissioned her to write a short poem.

By the time my wife was back at her own desk Ruth had created this:

There is nothing you don’t know
But that it is revealed in a speed-oh!
It will cause lots of panic
If you appear in a banana hammock.
You will get a lot of flack
From wearing what’s called ‘a nut sack’.
Stretchy fabrics, a gripping fit!
What’s left to imagine – not a bit!

Don’t do it or else.
