there’s a friend and then there’s a “help me get this suit over my ass” friend
swimmer compliments are the best bc it’s not shit like
“I like your outfit/hair”
it’s more like
“I wish I had your shoulder tan”
“omg I think your boobs grew!!”
“ughh I want your leg muscle!!
from my experience in swimming, ive come to the realization that a pool is 90% pee and 10% tears
