Travelling in Packs

A few days ago I decided to run inside. It was windy and cold outside. So windy, I thought I might end up in Oz. There was no choice. I headed to the gym. When I walked past the pool I saw my favorite group of people - seniors. They were aquacizing.

What is it that is so lovable about seniors? It is it the fact that they do aquacize in keds? Don't they don't know about aqua socks? Why is it that so many still wear the same bathing fashions as Queen Victoria? I can't say for sure. But they look so sweet!

After watching them work out, I have noticed a few things. Seniors, like teenagers, travel in packs. It would never occur to them to go to aquacize alone. Not that it would matter if they did, everyone from their volunteer groups to their church choir is there anyway.

The fact is that working out gives them the perfect chance to make eyes at each other. Then casually go out for coffee afterward. Which is just a prelude to.....

A prelude to what? :)

Exactly. Seniors are the new teenagers. They should have chaperones.
