Splish, Splash I Was Taking A Swim

I went swimming tonight after work and the pool has an interesting ... enhancement ... I guess you could say. That is, they have underwater speakers blaring rock and roll.

I know many people who would NOT consider this a good thing. In fact, it would probably keep them from swimming at this pool entirely. They like one noise when swimming -- the whoosh whoosh of water and silence -- and that's it.

Now, I have to admit I do like listening to pop music and so Beyonce calling out to all the Single Lady mermaids underwater is okay with me. It had a different but dangerous effect on me. I found I was staying under water too long, beyond my breathing capacity to listen to Beyonce. NOT a good idea. Blub, blub, blub!
