Today, after work, I went for my first swim of the summer. Aaaahhhh! It was very refreshing. I'd told myself I'd swim at least 6 laps, and I ended up doing 8. Then I did an underwater somersault, and thought I was going to barf for a second. Woof! I hopped out and laid beside the pool, letting the late afternoon sun rake across my white belly. Shicka-shicka-shicka the cicadas rattled to each other in the trees.
