Take a dip

Perhaps you remember Austin City Limits Music Festival 2007, watching Ben Kweller in the afternoon heat on the last day of the festival. Then you also remember hoping against hope that he would bloody his nose like the year before as beads of sweat – seemingly originating on your forehead – reach your waistline, slowly soaking your shorts. Unpleasant. Thinking ahead to the Ghostland Observatory perspiration factory later in the evening, you knew something had to be done. A dip in our city's 68-degree treasure of a swimming hole is your ticket to a happier, healthier ACL. Keep your clothes on during the dip, take that refreshed feeling with you to the next crush of humanity, and be the person everyone wants to stand near.
