What exactly is it with this phobia about perspiration anyway? I really think the planning institute's president needs to get some professional help about it
Pete, you obviously missed the memo.
Perspiration is something that is no longer appropriate in public. Your perspirational activities should be confined to a purpose-defined indoor facility, where you pay money to look at yourself in a mirror while operating machinery that is designed to efficiently convert human effort into low-grade heat.
Afterward, you are obliged to engage in a cleansing ritual, which involves numerous tubes of fragranced gel-like products, then drying one's body using multiple towels that must be washed and mechanically dried for the purpose. Re-using these towels is a breach of protocol.
You should be able to get a car park close to the front door, to minimise the risk of premature perspiration walking to the door.
