Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker teearr: "What's an ordinary part of your everyday life that others may find unusual/surprising?"

[Content Note: Body policing; fat hatred] Given that I'm constantly admonished to "get some exercise" by fat-hating numpties, including this very day (as virtually every day) on Twitter, I think there's no ordinary part of my everyday life that others are likely to find surprising than the fact that I love to swim and do it as often as I can.

I actually love all kinds of physical movement; I'm just unable to do much of it because of my inability to sweat. I was super thrilled for a gorgeous 50-degree day this weekend, which I used to get in a couple miles of hiking. Even at that temp, my hypohidrosis eventually caught up to me, but I take what I can get!
