I’m exhausted, my ears are clogged up, and I smell like chlorine. I’ve signed up with Lily to go to the Half Hollow Hills West Natatorium once a week for laps.
See, I’ve only been used to swimming at a leisurely pace to hang out. I have successfully avoided going to a gym my entire life. But Lily has been taking lessons for more than a year. Last semester she cast off all of her fear and swam in the 12 foot deep section.
Swimming is great exercise and tomorrow I will ache. I don’t think there is a muscle in my body that I have missed. I’ll keep up with it but I have to do something about my ears. My right ear’s hearing is off by half and that bugs me.
The things I do to spend more time with my wife.
