11/04/05 How Sweet It Is

I’m in my hometown of Wooster, Ohio, this weekend to visit my Dad, and this means that I get to swim in the FABULOUS high school pool (50m indoors, set up for 8 lanes of 25-yard swimming). I went for a swim at 1 pm and was the only one in the pool. It doesn’t get any better for zoning out and zoning in.
