Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Swimming

I've signed up for adult swimming lessons. Look at me, growing!

Someone suggeted water aerobics as a good, low impact form of exercise. But as most of you know, I don't like water. So I went to the Ballard pool to chat with someone and get a feel for the place. The guy behind the desk suggested taking lessons, to get more comfortable. Of course I signed up. Because I'm impulsive like that. Mondays at 8pm. Is that really late, or is it just me?

Anyway, I'm scared. I think it's more the whole showering beforehand (Steve says I have to be naked....I will not be naked) and then the unspoken rules - do I wear flip flops around the pool area? Do I have to wear a swim cap? Goggles? What if my toenail polish is chipping? Will other women make fun of me? Do I have to shave my legs each week? Crap.

I'm banking on the fact that other people will be as uncomfortable as I am. Then I won't stand out. Funny, I can get on stage in a mini skirt and red boots and sing in front of 50 people, but put me in a bathing suit near a pool with other adults and I want to throw up.

Blech.
