under the sea

Do you ever get a song stuck in your head? It repeats itself over and over without ceasing until that blessed moment when you can finally begin to think about something else (or get some other song stuck in your head). It happens to me quite frequently and I'm sure that it will become more of a routine thing for me now.

I've been up since 4:45am. I went to the highschool this morning to swim laps. YAY! First time in 7 years. 7 years! Can you believe I've gone 7 years without swimming laps? For those that knew me in highschool or before you know how much I love the water and love to swim. Synchronized swimming in grade school and competetive swimming in highschool. So anyway, back to my story. I was swimming laps and the next thing you know I start singing songs from the Little Mermaid in my head. I guess they are appropriate songs since the movie takes place primarily underwater. It's just weird how something like swimming can trigger songs about water, and mermaids. There were no crabs swimming with me and I didn't see anyone who resembled a mermaid...but nonetheless the songs were playing. I wonder what everyone else thinks about while they're swimming. My friend Beth in highschool had an waterproof mini radio. She would just put the headphones on and begin swimming the mile (we had to do that a couple of times), but she got to actually listen to real songs and not the ones made up by her brain. Anyway, just wondering if this ever happened to anyone else.

I wonder what song I'll be singing tomorrow.

Have a great day...and just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...
