But then...

Today has been fraught with all kinds of annoyances.  Mostly technical.  Some not.  But they have been constant. One after another. Everything has had an issue with me today.

But, on my way down just now to get the mail and get away from all the brokens, I thought...

Yeah but today I swam a mile before 8 am!

I know it's silly.  When she died Ethel Merman talked about swimming 2 miles every morning before she went in to shoot movies of her swimming.  (Ok, so it was Ester Williams - thanks flying_blind !) So a mile is no big deal.  And people do way more every day.  As a person of the female persuasion who grew up before Title 9, I tend to forget that real people go outside and do rigorous stuff for fun all the time.

But I wonder how many of those suckers swam a mile before 8 am today??!!!  I did!

When I was a kid, I was a fairly good water skier but, really, that was it. And I probably skied for the last time when I was 12. I've never accomplished anything physical (wait, do orgasms count??).  Until today.

I swam a fucking mile today.

Ok, I'm done.  I think.
