I love the way Tom Daley doesn’t take himself too seriously, despite his athletic prowess and his smashing good looks. Every time I gaze at the photo to the left, I laugh. And who wouldn’t give Tom a lift if he were hitching a ride? (“I’ll take you anywhere you want to go, Tom. Just hop in, and we’re off.” 😉
Well, I tried out my new YMCA summer schedule today, and it worked like a charm. I got my own lap lane, right after I arrived around 12:45 PM. After I swam my quarter-mile, I worked out in the fitness center, and walked out the door around 2:30 PM, feeling relaxed and refreshed.
On my way home, I hit the wine store and supermarket, and now I’ve put everything away. My fridge and cupboards are stocked for the week. I have leftover for my dinner tonight, and I’ll likely watch a Netflix movie.
Whenever someone asks me to name my favorite athlete, I always tell them it’s British Olympic diver Tom Daley, whose photos you see posted here. And it’s not just because Tom is sexy. It’s also because he’s a genuinely nice person who serves as a great role model for gay boys and men all over the world. Imagine having the courage to come out as gay while you’re competing at the level Tom does? He’s an amazing guy.
We love you, Tom. 🙂
I was up a little before nine this morning, after spending my Sunday evening at home, watching a Netflix movie and dining on leftovers. I went to be around 11:30 PM and zonked right out.
Here’s another great photo of Tom, taken during a diving competition. I wonder if he’s waving to his husband, Lance?
It’s another scorching hot day, here on the island, so warm that it’s unpleasant to venture outside. I’ll be visiting the YMCA this afternoon, at a time 30 minutes earlier than I usually go. Summer camp is in session at the Y, so I have to swim my laps when I first get there, then work out in the fitness center. On my way back home, I’ll need to visit the wine market and supermarket, to re-stick after the weekend.
All right, everyone, I need to get moving, so I will wish all of you a wonderful Monday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling like Tom Daley does, it’s important. 🙂
