Waterproof iPod --
world's greatest invention for
lap swimmers like me!
Oh people, there is nothing more boring on this planet than swimming laps. Believe me, I know.
That's why I have a waterproof casing and headphones for my iPod. So I swim to the sounds of my would-be lover Toby Keith, the Dixie Chicks (I'm an equal-opportunity country fan -- the Toby-Chicks feud just annoys me), Martina McBride, John Michael Montgomery, Josh Turner, the Broadway cast recording of "Wicked," a barbershop quartet that ROCKS MY WORLD and a few other esoteric choices -- "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and Donny Osmond (I'm sorry, I'm so ashamed).
Without the music, I spend too much time in my own head. And although I do enjoy my own company, sometimes I get a little too involved in my own mental morass.
Not a good thing.
So yippee skippy for being able to combine music and swimming and ... a happy Haiku Friday to you all!
(P.S. I found out too late that yesterday was Delurking Day ... and I missed it. So be a pal, eh? Delurk TODAY for me instead. Thanks!)
