I Swam Anyway

Despite all odds, I made it to DSU. I was on my way early after doing a treadmill run of 2.5 miles, when disaster struck. On Highway 82 just before you come to Walmart, traffic stopped abruptly. It was raining and one lane was closed due to road construction. I hit the back of the vehicle in front of me. 

Dull city. 

Besides waiting forever, I had to pay a wrecker to deposit my truck behind my house. For several years, I have only carried liability insurance on it. It's payed for, and I'm just trying to make ends meet. Now I'm in a real pickle. 

To make a short story long, I walked to Mom's and borrowed her car to go to DSU. Because of delays, I didn't get to see the grandchildren and I didn't get in the water until 6:28. I swam
