And The Livin's Easy

THOR:  EARLY ADOPTER OF JETPACK TECH
It pays to be lazy around here.  And I'm talking a purposeful, directed laziness, here.  A scheduled, rigorous kind of lazy.  Which isn't easy to pull off.  So we've zeroed out any long road trips and making anything resembling big plans in lieu of hanging at the house.

Our schedule is as enjoyable as it is ridiculously simple:  You sit around until you get hot, doing whatever strikes your fool mind to do.  Then you dip in the pool.  Then you get back out until you get uncomfortably hot.  Then you slide back in the pool.

Every three rounds of surf 'n turf or so, you get a snack.  Naturally, you then hop back in the pool at least in part to wash all the banana smoothie gunk, graham cracker gravel, or black ice cream sandwich mortar off.

IF and I mean IF you decide to do something as harrowing and difficult as driving 125 yards down to your fishing spot, or jaunting over to the library, you immediately follow the trip with a... well, a splash or two in the pool.  (And a snack.)

This schedule solves at least two pesky issues, and probably many, many more:  (1) breaking up the whole submersion-in-liquid dimension of poolgoing (man, I hate getting pruney) and (2) making it appear as if you're not voluntarily spending 6 solid hours in the cee-ment pond every single day.  Which some people frown on.  Nobody I can name, mind you, but y'know, theoretically.

And an idyllic summer continues.  Like so:
