Ass Whipping in the Pool

To make our $90/month newly minted gym membership worthwhile, we made our way down to the Newton YMCA pool to swim laps. Yeah yeah I know it won't last but still ... Anyway all was going well till this 80 year old grandma type asked to share our lane. Granny then proceeded to kick butt by speeding past me at this lightning pace. Poor out of shape me wasn't able to get ahead of her no matter how hard I pushed my flabby self. Finally when we were taking a breather at the edge of the pool, I told her that I had to stop after every lap NOT because I was tired but because Peck and I were sharing a pair of goggles. Right ... I could see her secretly mocking me from behind her freaking scuba mask.
