I hesitated about this, probably for obvious reasons. I’ve been wanting to do the joke about t-shirt tan lines being a tell-tale sign of Idaho residency for some time, and I was going to use Joe Rock for it since (of course) it is easier to show a guy shirtless. However, I did not have any foreseeable opportunities for Joe to be in a common shower area any time soon, while Nikki Donner is in a common area during her time at Advanced Individual Training, or AIT. True, Joe was at Annual Training recently but he was with the 213th Battalion and everyone there was from Idaho, so the set-up would make no sense.
I make it a point not to “sexy up” any of my characters, which of course includes the female characters. They dress normally, I think; no tight uniforms or popping buttons or oversized hind ends, nor “top-heavy”. Of course, people take showers and that’s a normal part of the duty experience– to have to share a communal shower area with relative strangers. So hopefully the context works; either way it’s not like there’s going to be a regular influx of strategic shower jokes or the like. After all, we want to keep this… clean.
