DEAR HARRIETTE: After a swim class, I went into the shower immediately and forgot my towel. I realized my forgetfulness too late, so I was stuck with either putting my chlorine-filled bathing suit back on or quickly streaking to my locker. I had just showered, so I tried to cover myself as best I could while walking the 30 feet to my belongings. As I was passing, a woman rolled her eyes at me. This was in a locker room, and although I know times have changed, people used to be naked in there all the time. I didn't want to do anything that would bring attention to me, so I pretended to not see her get angry over something that people have the right to do in locker rooms. If this were to happen again, I would snap back, but my best friend told me I am not certain why the woman was rolling her eyes and may be hypersensitive. I think there is no other possibility than it being at me! -- Streaker, Syracuse, New York
DEAR STREAKER: Relax. It is hardly the end of the world that you forgot your towel. I'm sure you were as discreet as you could be under the circumstances. Hopefully you won't forget your towel in the future, but if you do, there's no need to "snap back." Instead, stay focused on getting to your locker and getting dressed. A locker room is a place where people commonly are naked, if only momentarily.
