[edit later] Turns out it did post. Now I have redundant redundancy...
I discovered the early morning Monday/Wednesday/Friday swims and except for a couple of trips to CES, I've been there every single Monday/Wednesday/Friday since ... until today.
Last Monday the pool had an emergency closure. When I went back on Wednesday, I said to Sophie, the lifeguard, 'why didn't you send me a text letting me know?' She had a very lame response. This morning, she sent me a text asking where in the heck I was... Nice of her to miss me but it's lovely to get up at my leisure and know that the pool is ready for me whenever I am ready.
And I'm about ready now. It's supposed to be much cooler today. I'm sitting on my bed with the laptop and it's sure not much cooler in here. I am so over this Summer already.
I think I'll go have a bowl of cereal in front of the air conditioner and then make my way over to the pool.
Now I'm back from my very excellent swim. I listened to a Ted Talk podcast for about half of it and music for the rest. I mostly had the pool to myself. And there were no traffic or parking issues at all. I would not have even known there was a thing going on a few blocks away.
It is way cooler today. Not cool enough for me but way better than it has been. And tomorrow is supposed to be even cooler yet. Yeah!
