The Good Effort

The only response to today's heat was to come home from work, get into my bathing suit and head to the city pool.

When I signed in at the front desk of the recreation center, the youngin' asked me if I was there for Zumba. I was so confused and told him that I didn't even know that Zumba was offered.

Walked through the labyrinth to get to the pool then sat on the edge. I'm hungry this young man said to me. Weird but he was in a chatty mood, I guess.

These two women asked me if I was staying for Zumba -- Aqua Zumba. You have got to be kidding me. The city pool closes in less than two weeks and I had no idea that there was an Aqua Zumba class on Thursdays.

I was so torn...and hungry. Aqua Zumba was set to start at 6:30. I also had Zumba in the Streets on my radar (at 7)  plus my regular old Zumba class.

I nixed Aqua Zumba then headed to get something to eat. Went back and forth about outdoor Zumba but didn't think the experience would be very pleasant so I chilled out for a bit then went to the gym for my regular 7:30 p.m. class.

Did not see the teacher and thought that the class had been stood up. Only, the sub was inside subbing for the first of two classes. As we warmed up, I wished that I had asked our regular teacher if she were on social media so that I could find out when she would or would not be present but then I looked at the substitute teacher and she was earnest and making a good effort and that's all I needed.

    Well, I guess you'll be ready for next year.
