I have my reasons. (There are always reasons....)
2. Swimming is the one form of exercise I can enjoy outside right now without sweating.
3. Once I pass a certain totally-made-up-in-my-head number of days pursuing this activity? I will feel absolutely justified, if not obligated, to share that I'm swimming every day with everybody I speak to for a time span of over three minutes. (Random folks I know who might be reading here? Consider yourselves duly warned...).
I might even begin bringing it up with telemarketers rather than simply hanging up.
Telemarketer: May I please speak with AustinAgrodolce?
Tmarketer: How are you this evening?
Me: Pretty good, actually
Tmarketer: That's great. I'm calling tonight on behalf of...
Me: (interrupting) Say! Do you exercise regularly?
Tmarketer: Um, I'm calling tonight to talk to you about....
Me: Because I've been swimming laps every day now for a while? And I'm really getting into it.
Tmarketer: Yes, well, I'm calling....
Me: (Interrupting again) I could probably help you get started with an exercise program all your own if you have a few minutes?
By then if there is any justice in this world they'll have hung up on me, I can get back to watching the Olympics and peace will reign in all the land. At least, all the land in my living room.
