My showers have the oddest smell. I can never seem to wash myself of chlorine. It leeches into my skin every morning while I swim. No matter how long I shower afterwards, there’s always a residue.

I know. I smell chlorine during my afternoon shower.

It makes me wonder if I’ve got an aura of chlorine. Pig Pen had his dust aura, which followed him everywhere he walked. Do I reek of public pool? Do people think I’ve got a cleaning obsession and my hands and arms are stained with Clorox solution? No, I’m just crazy enough to swim daily.
