I went to the gym sans rootbeer1 today--Steve had already been early this morning. Walking back to the locker room from the pool after swimming my million laps, I was joined by an elderly Chinese man.

"You swim very good," he said.

"Thanks, I've been swimming laps for many years," I replied.

"You swim for a long time. You don't get tired?"

I wanted to reply, like Shelley Winters in The Poseidon Adventure, "In the water, I'm a very skinny lady." But I wasn't sure he'd get the reference, so I said something like "I weigh less in the water, so I can go a long time, and it's better for my joints." He gave me a big thumbs up with both hands.

I do really like our gym--people are very personable. Except when they hog the good jets in the jacuzzi.
