S**T! I overslept. F**K! I forgot to make the coffee last night. P**S! It's cold and dark outside.

S**T! I'm late. But if I'm lucky maybe those guys are already in the water and I can make up some BS story and get out of climbing into a damp cold wetsuit and even colder water. F**k! They're waiting for me. They say won't swim without me. P**S! Gotta swim.

S**T! F**K! P**S! The water is really really really cold. Man up, weenie. Painful at first, but once the face and hands go numb, what's difference?

Back on shore. Sun coming up. Beautiful morning. Glad I did it. What was I whining about?Great start to the day. Happy to be alive.
