Our strategy for the 2030 games

Today's Olympic Moment is in the form of a dialogue with my sister.

SHAN: So I was watching this Michael Whatsit interview with Jenn Heil the other day, and he said "Is it true that there are condoms readily available in the Athletes' Village?" and Jenn said "Yes." Then he said "Really, there are condoms everywhere?" and she said "Yes."

GWEN: Hm.

SHAN: You think of them as these elite athletes, flying down the course doing all these instantaneous physical calculations, "I'm focussed on this competition and can't afford distraction", and in reality they're a bunch of bunnies, doing it with each other between events.

GWEN: And why not really. I mean, who can blame them?

SHAN: True. You're young and hot, the best shape you'll ever be for your entire life, now's the time, man.

GWEN: Yeah - they're the best of the best. Actually - hey, breed 'em!

SHAN: Yeah, what are we doing supplying them with condoms? If there's one thing this society needs, it's more people like them.

GWEN: Exactly.

[Short silence.]

SHAN: Hey we should go to Whistler, sneak into the Athletes' Village with a pin, and poke holes in all those condoms.

GWEN: Totally.

You're nuts. In the best possible way, of course :-)

Kate, oddly, nuts, are at least in part, what this post is about.

a) And they wondered about the strange spike in highly athletic AIDS babies that year...

b) Uh-oh. I hope no one's been doing that to the condoms among NYC messengers...

That sounds just like a conversation that the husband and I would have.

Oh, Shan... Remember when the Commonwealth Games were at UVic a little over ten years ago? I was working there. Trust me - condoms every-frickin-where. And they got used up...
