Swimming and Distraction

Can you believe it? I have 4 more hours and I’m done with the swimming lessons. I still can’t get the freestyle breathing right and I think the back of my shoulder blades are hurting again when I tried to do free style (front crawl). This evening I was very excited about going to the pool because it’s after all, a very hot day. Along the way, as I was driving, I played Josh Groban’s album and I got teary eyed. Of course my emotions resembled a roller coster especially after watching that episode of Ally McBeal where the man whom she was supposed to marry just disappeared. In that episode, she was trying to encourage this other character to sing solo after the girl he loved decided to go to prom with another man. Josh Groban played the role of that young man. Almost at the end of that episode, she encouraged him (and herself) that they would love again. I was already tearing up even then. So, the music kept playing in my mind even when I was walking to the pool. I was so distracted till I forgot to remove my shirt before entering the pool. I had to go home later in the evening wearing the wet shirt over my wet swimsuit. Yes, it’s important to be able to laugh at oneself. Obviously the Josh Groban fever hasn’t ended. But it’s really not about him since I don’t know him personally. It’s his voice that has a Mr.Darcy effect on me. 

Speaking of Mr.Darcy, yes.. It makes me smile just seeing Pride and Prejudice at the bookstore… Because it reminds me of Mr. Darcy. So perhaps I should read P&P when I listen to Groban’s albums. 

I recall telling one of my juniors (in the past) that if I got married, the song I would choose is “beauty and the beast”… Because I would expect to be the beast getting married to the beauty. But what about the romantic waltz scene (cartoon waltz scene…romantic? But it’s true…) Since I’m stiff like stick, my perfect scene would be a duet with that someone who probably still doesn’t exist in my life. (But not just any voice….)
