[from Latin balneum bath + -AL]
Of or pertaining to a (warm) bath or bathing.
I love baths. I'm English, so it's in my blood (metaphorically speaking). There was even a time when my parents had to curb my three-a-day habit, quite possibly the first parents in history that were demanding their teenage son wash less. While it's true that during all of my balneal luxuriating I never managed to look quite as glamorous as Jean Crain, baths still hold an indulgence and extravagance that modern life rarely affords us. Therefore, I say, do not hold back your balneal desires - unleash your rubber duck, unstop your bottle of bubbles and lose yourself in the gentle lapping of the balneal waters.
