Apparently, Olympic divers hit the showers after each and every dive. Possibly, they believe their swimwear enjoys the water. Actually, divers shower in between each dive to keep their muscles warm after getting out of the pool. The temperature of the pool water and the air are usually different. A pool is usually around 80 degrees, and the air temperature between 68 and 72 degrees. This difference in temperature can cause muscle tightness. To combat this, after exitting the pool divers warm up in either the showers or a hot tub. Anyway, the fact is that proffesional athletes work very hard to keep their tools in working order (their tools being their muscles). I was wondering what fashion designers use to keep their senses sharp enough for that next important collection. Do designers also hit the showers?? Or possibly they flip through fashion magazines for inspiration... (hey, shouldn't they come up with their own unique designs...) Anyway, after further thought, I have come to the conclusion that it is very possible that the majority of designers "hit the bottle" for inspiration. When you see a runway show, don't you often say to yourself, "that designer must have been drunk when they developed that line. That outfit is hideous..."
