Coma resident Thomas Steven John claimed this week he set a new personal record for getting ready.
“Twelve minutes,” John said with a wide grin. “That includes showering, brushing my teeth, applying lotion to my face, getting dressed, putting on my shoes and collecting my keys, debit card, cash and a few breath mints.”
John, who told his friends and his girlfriend, Carol Tate, about his feat, said he can usually get ready pretty fast on a normal day, but there was something special about this experience.
“As I was drying my crotch I realized I had only taken about a two minute shower because my crotch wasn’t even wet,” John said. “That’s when I knew I had a chance to get ready faster than I’d ever gotten ready before.”
John was preparing to meet his friends at a local tavern and ended up being nearly one hour early.
“I think I can do it even faster,” John said. “If I eliminate the shower part and the tooth brushing, I could probably get ready in ten minutes. Is it tooth brushing or teeth brushing?”
