“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.”
Saturday (May 25th) is Towel Day. Towel Day pays tribute to Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. After his death, Hitchhiker fans wanted to honor him so Towel Day was created. In Chapter 3 of his book he talks about the importance of towels… ”A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” So in honor of Adams, fans from around the world (or universe), carry around towels.
So before, during (well, maybe not during) and after your swim, be sure to keep your towel around ya, to celebrate Towel Day with the rest of the universe!
