that's from the nursery rhythm that goes...."....he went to the market to buy a fat pig; then, home again, home again, jimity jig"
or something like that. the point being that i am doing a jimity jig after my knee surgery this morning! ah, at last, no more knee pain, at least until the meds wear off.
i'm feeling liberated. no crutches, just a bigass bandaged wrapped knee. i can still do the jig, though.
about the piece here:
i did a stupid thing yesterday. i wanted to get one last cove swim; my last hurrah before going under the knife...
so...i went with my friends mary and mike, (rosie's coach) to swim a mile for exercise....
buuut, there was a minuscule warning sign up saying the water was a bit hazardous to swim in...people were ignoring it. so did we.
this is why i place the art with two green figures up today....after we swam, we found out the cove was 4 times over the threshold warning for icky, sticky toxic stuff in the water. we found out later that there was a drainage problem with (barf) sewer. we hadn't guessed that would be the case, since it hasn't been raining or anything. and the cove has never has a hazard sign - a lifeguard there told us. (he didn't know how toxic it was, he was only told to put up a sign.) (i personally suspect it was a restaurant above the cove dumping, illegally).
god, i'm beginning to believe there is no safe place to swim nowadays. remember a few posts back, i wrote about "the ringworm guy" at the club pool. uggggggh.
and lots of times i have seem poop logs on the bottom of municipal pools after "kiddie swim".
and do you think birds avoid pooping in outdoor pools?
i think not.
ah, we are ok, so far, just stomachaches and head aches all 'round.
i can hear my dear friend Kathy Olsen saying now, "i told you to never swim in polluted water - it can give you brain damage."
i know Kathy, i know, you're right it was very stupid, but as far as brain damage is concerned..... how could we tell if i contracted it?
