The lido social-media community is a rich and rewarding place to hang out. A wealth of information and joy is shared on a daily basis, questions are asked, answers are provided...
But this morning a tweeter, in response to a tweet from Save Grange Lido, wondered what the collective noun for lidos might be.
So, naturally, I asked people to suggest them. There have been some fantastic suggestions so far, including a splash, a lux, a plunge, an invigoration and an exhaustion - that latter came from a pool that is currently gearing up to open for the 2019 season and I think lido volunteers everywhere will identify with it.
My personal favourite, so far, is eudaemonia - which, of course, I had to google:
happiness or well-being; specif., in Aristotle's philosophy, happiness or well-being, the main universal goal, distinct from pleasure and derived from a life of activity governed by reason
Anyway - I'd love to have more suggestions and am taking them via both facebook and twitter. Please join the conversation. I'll take my favourite 4 suggestions at the end of today, and tomorrow will poll them on both facebook and twitter. The suggester of the winning collective noun will get a Lido Guide swim cap posted out.
