I tweeted yesterday about taking the 9 a.m. Saturday morning aqua class to try to fit some aqua in before the rain comes again. It was 35 degrees when I got ready to leave.
Now, the pool was heated-- 78 degrees for aqua, it might even be 80--so the worst part was stripping to my suit and walking to the stairs (and then the trip from the pool to the hot tub afterward) and the class was pretty small. (This means we could work really hard--lots of room--so we could keep ourselves warm.)
Anyway, I hadn't met this aqua instructor before, but she was awesome. A salty woman in her sixties, she was having technical difficulties with her DVD player and I offered my phone in its place.
"I'm not sure what's on it," I said apologetically. "It's the kids' mix on Spotify."
"I have no idea what that means."
Heather Dale--March of the Cambreadth
Journey--Don't Stop Believing
The Romantics--What I Like About You
Dropkick Murphy's--The Warrior's Code
Mark Ronson--Uptown Funk
Boxer Rebellion--The Runner
Lil Wayne--Let it Rock
Hunger Games Soundtrack--The Hanging Tree
Heather Dale--Mordred's Lullaby
And I was living in fear that Linkin Park and Offspring would come on, because those songs had a lot of swear words.
Anyway-- it's sort of eclectic.
And the funniest part of the whole experience was when one of the other victims, er, class members, turned to me and said "Oh my God, how old are your kids?"
I had to laugh.
That's a very complicated answer!!!
But some of you were worried about me when I said I was going... I just thought I'd tell you I survived.
And I'm thinking of going in the cold tomorrow. But, you know, only if the music's good ;-)
