There was a glamour boy reunion in the pool today.
I could smell it when I opened the door to the locker room.
As I entered the pool room I was assaulted and intrigued at the same time.
Not only were the Glamour Boys having their cheap cologne scented (I think todays scent was Horkamata’s Revenge) Oprah Winfrey show in lane four but there was a newbie in lane two.
She was young, beautiful and completely out of place.
Since the Aqua-ettes were all huddled at the far end of the pool in the other lanes discussing the newbie I asked if I could share her lane.
She gave the prettiest smile and said “Come on in, the water’s fine!”
As I introduced myself she told me her name was Lindsay N. Hunter and she was joining us because her regular gym was closed for some reason or another.
Now, I’m a married spud and the Aqua-ettes know this but I could see the poisoned darts of jealousy shooting at Lindsay from the other end of the pool and the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife.
Apparently, there had been a little circle peed around me and I was claimed territory.
My special friend had her teeth halfway out of her mouth and was literally growling.
I approached slowly, smiled and batted my eyes at her, told her that her shower cap looked particularly good today and the the teeth made their way tentatively back into her mouth.
As she looked over my shoulder at Lindsay though, her lip twitched and little growl escaped.
I got some spit on me.
The most intriguing thing though was the glint of real malice in her eyes so I think I’ll keep myself between Lindsay & the Ladies.
This morning might just turn out pretty interesting…
