    Question Rewriting a sentence

    hi!
    how could you rewrite this sentence using a more interesting word than the words in bold?

    Daniel got out of the pool and got dressed.

    Possibly "Daniel jumped out of the pool...." to start with? And then...?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    How about; "Daniel climbed out of the pool and dressed (himself)." I hope that he dried himself before dressing!

    Daniel emerged from pool, the clear sparkling water dripping from his firm bronzed muscles. Deborah watched him furtively from behind her sunglasses and her drink. As he flung his towel across his broad chest and back, the sunlight caught each wave of his flexed toned body. Deborah took another sip from her cocktail as he stepped into his shorts, threw on a t-shirt and walked lazily past the girls on the other side of the pool.

    Daniel sprang out of the pool and lied down for a moment facing the sky. Not noticing what the clock was saying he hastily went to the changing room and got dressed.
