Today's Review: Towels

Just look at that picture of a piece of white fabric. That's all it is, but you know what it stands for. We all know what towels are, and we use them every day. There's a reason why a towel is the most important thing an intergalactic hitchhiker can have, and while I may not be bounding across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta anytime soon, I can certainly appreciate the value of a good towel.

Without towels, everything would be wet. We wouldn't be able to dry our hands after washing them, or after washing dishes, or after a water balloon related incident. Sure, they'd dry eventually by themselves, but there'd be that lengthy period afterwards where everything we touch would become moist, and that's far from desirable. There may be alternatives to damp handedness, such as hand dryers and those paper dispensers, but they pale in comparison, unworthy copies designed for mass consumption. But we'll always come back home to a nice, soft towel. Our towel.

Aside from hand drying, can you imagine having a shower or bath without a towel? Standing there, waiting for the moisture to soak into your skin, for who knows how long? Towels are our friend, they're there to wrap us up and make us dry and warm. There are body towels, beach towels, kitchen towels, all sorts and in all sizes. Towels are just so versatile, and there to protect and dry us every step of the way. I certainly couldn't live without towels, and I know that because I panic when I can't find one. Yes, without towels, I think society would collapse into a slightly moist wreck.

My rating: 5/5
