A strange story that my fellow swimmers will especially relate to. You know how if the lane already has someone in it, you wait on the edge until they swim up and say, â€œHey, do you mind sharing?â€ and the other person always says, â€œNo, thatâ€™s fine, of course we can share,â€ not only because thatâ€™s good swimming etiquette, but also because they have to share per the rules? So asking to share is just a polite way of indicating, â€œHey, scoot overâ€ instead of just wordlessly hopping in?
Today, I asked a guy if he would share the lane with me and he said no! I had to share with him, so I wasnâ€™t sure what to do next â€“ strangest and most awkward experience ever. Luckily, the lifeguard came over immediately and told him to move over (maybe he refuses to share regularly?!). Has anyone else encountered this at the pool? Someone actually saying no when you ask to share a lane? Iâ€™ve been swimming for a while and shared a dozen lanes and this is the first time itâ€™s happened to me. Iâ€™ve said this before, but I love to share lanes because it makes the water choppier and more like a lake swim.
All in all, I swam 1,000 yards. Not bad. Oh, and Henry had his first gym daycare experience. Apparently, he loved it. Toys galore!
Off to get work doneâ€¦ Oh, Monday.
