Today is Towel Day. At first, I thought it was just like, a normal towel-appreciation day where you’d just take 24 hours to fully appreciate towels and all the different kinds of towels there are: bath towels, dish towels, face towels, beach towels, hotel towels, personalized towels, paper towels, those luxurious soft towels that you never would think to spend so much money on but are really worth it, or even heated towel RACKS OMG, etc.
Or I thought maybe it was just a special day to appreciate terry cloth, which I honestly think is the most underappreciated fabric in the world. How awesome and wonderful is terry cloth? So absorption-y! Absorpsive? Full of absorption? [Ed note: absorbent] I mean, is there any other kind of material out there that just wonderfully and totally dries your body? I used to wish that beaches would be one long strip of terry cloth instead of sand, so you could run out of the water and nicely dry your body by rolling around on the ground.
Anyway, turns out it’s in celebration of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Blah blah blah nerd alert.
