This means I have to shower and go mingle with people I don’t see often. I hope they have a “my name is” sticker for me. I feel amongst my people at the pool, hope they don’t miss me too much.
I just called a friend and asked her when warm ups are. Yes, I probably need to get out more often.
I am not sure I know what my daughter looks like in a crowd without a swim suit, cap and goggles on. I have learned to recognize them by their walk, the way they cock their hip when they stand, the way they use their palms to press their goggles in, how they arrange their hair in a cap and which arm shakes like mad when they are nervous.
I hope they sing fast and nail all their starts and finishes.
