Why I do it in the shower all the time!!!!!!!!!!!
As a working, teaching, performing musician I swim everyday to stay in shape and keep my neck and shoulders relaxed. I started swimming at a different olympic-sized pool and the life guard obviously was watching the newcomer... initially for safety, then out of boredom, then more keenly out of curiousity.On one lap he kindly commented that I was a very strong swimmer but suggested that "I was working too hard" with the ratio of flutter kicks to arm strokes. He had evidently observed that I was doing X number of kicks and felt I would be better off doing Y number. I thanked him for his kind advice and kept swimming the way I normally do.The next day I came in there were two life guards watching me. "There she is" I heard the first one say. As my ratio changed from 4 kicks to 3 kicks per stroke, I heard one of them yell D**m! How do you do that?Well, I responded... the piece of music I was swimming to just changed time signatures from 4/4 to 6/8!Next time I'll just inform them I was swimming aqua-pella! Thank you to you and your daughters for the fun new musical term!CelticHarp17@hotmail.com
Thanks for the comment, Celtic Harp. But I love the "changing time signatures"! That's priceless. :)
