A few years ago we went and visited friends in New Mexico. The first time I took a shower there I was amazed at how fast their towels dried me off. I barely patted myself down and I was instantly bone dry. When we got together for breakfast I shared my enthusiasm. “You have the best towels in the world! I can’t believe how fast they dried me off. What kind of towels are they?” There was a pause and a small chuckle before they said “Welcome to the desert. There’s nothing special about the towels, the air is just really dry.”
