In a swimming pool shower room.
In a gloomy brightness of tile walls of the biggest Prague swimming pool...
Young, old, fat, slim, dark, nut brown or white.
Noise of showers echoes from the bodies and penetrates into bones.
Man sits in front of steambath and reads a newspaper. Other man staggers around and gabbles inapprehensible words.
A snake start crawling on the ground tiles. It's not a snake, but a water hose used by a maintenance man.
All of the sudden, water starts spraying from the snake body.
I move a bit away.
Water sprays the newspaper, but man keeps reading.
A maintenance man arrives. He cleans up his glasses and check the problem. Somehow, he is not able to fix it. Water sprays all around.
Propably some sealing...
I observe carefully, what's going to happen.
All of the sudden, the man stand up and screams: "FUCK!" In the very same moment he throws the hose wildely towards the tile floor.
Water sprays up to the ceiling.
Man with newspaper keep reading. Water is turning paper wet.
The hose starts sweeping around like a monster. Spit out water all around.
Allways the same, the inferno comes.
Maintenance man lean down to the monster. Immediatelly, he's drenched throug. He sees nothing as the monster managed to sweep over his glasses.
He grabs the monster, throws it wildely towards the tile floor and shouts: "FUCK"
Man with the newspaper rise his eyebrow. He's got his news dead drenched.
Other man goes by and gabbles. I hear a word "genitals..." He's got huge red wounds on his back.
Somebody stand right beside me and observe monster and maintenance man wrestling. Monster-snake winning...
"Fun house" he breathes out and leaves.
I move towards the showers. Someone beside me vocalize sounds like a wild boar.
He soap himself, than lies down and start tossing himself around and grunting.
I check what's up with the monster.
Totaly drenched maintenance man explains to the man with the newspaper he needs sealing.
Man looks at him with an amazement.
Water is all over.
Wild boar on the ground keeps tossing himslef over the tile floor and than shout out: "FUCK!" The shout echoes from the tile walls like a thunderstroke
with no chance to stab anywhere.
I move to drier room.
A man stands ahead of drier and pounds his head at the wall.He keeps gabbling work "genitals."
Man comes and look at my eyes.
"Haven't you seen my bag, have you?"
I look at him.
Sadly, he sinks his eyes and leaves.
