I was listening to a song on the radio this morning. Some woman was bleating out "I would die for you" over and over. I was thinking, what a dipshit she is. Dying for someone seen as the most ultimate thing you could do for them, and I can't think of anything more stupid just now. Even Twilight, which that song reminded me of. Then again, we're going to be having another federal election here soon, and that's right up there for stupid
Just what does dying for someone accomplish? Squat. The cube root of nothing. Worse than that, it leaves them to deal with a corpse, and there are all sorts of inconvenient rules about what can and cannot be done with or to a corpse. Really, what does either party get out of the deal?
I'd be much more impressed if she sang about putting some effort into it. Like taking care of someone that needs to be taken care of. Like making someone else's life easier or better somehow. The work is in figuring out just how. And then doing it. Or figuring out something useful to do with your life that will benefit many others, like inventing a way of cheaply and reliably producing potable water from dirty water. Or curing human stupidity, that would be a good one. There are no shortage of test subjects.
Wed yoga was all about the groin. Opening, stretching, working, invigorating, and I don't know what else. Even so, I went straight to bed when I got home and slept like a rock.
Back into the pool again, working on regaining this water feel thing. One hour. It's coming back. Leg exercises. A bit of core, but feeling lazy. The swimming is taking it out of me more than I thought.
