Pool Ups and Downs

As you might recall, I love to swim.  Two or three times a week, I swim at the local YMCA, which has huge physical and psychological benefits.  Sometimes, though, there are minuses along with the pluses.  Today was a perfect example.  I had an awesome swim.  All told, I swam a full mile, and I did it at a decent clip, using multiple styles of strokes.  In the process of doing my lengths, I did some good thinking, and I came up with a great idea for a novel!  A series of novels, in fact.  I’ve been trying to come up with this idea for quite a while, but couldn’t zero in on it till today.  I was cruising along, doing length after length, and voila!  The idea popped into my head!

But there was a downside.  While jumping up out of the pool like usual, my foot slipped, and I whacked the front of my shin but good.  It still hurts like the dickens!  What a dumb move!  I’ve hopped up out of that pool a thousand times before with no problem, and presto, I had to go and slip!  But I have to admit, when considering the big picture, it was a small price to pay for the great novel idea.  It was a tiny price to pay, in fact.  I guess everything in life has its ups and downs.  See you soon!
