Dream of a Pool

This dream had me at the olympic-sized pool at the school I attended through the 8th grade. I was on the swim team again. But upon getting to the pool I realized I did not have my speedo or my goggles. I asked a girl in the pool what I should do and she said to just swim naked. So I strip down there on the pool deck and hop in but my goggles are super concerning to me. How will I survive a two-hour practice without them? I began to get very worried. Then coming around the corner of the gymnasium was the rest of the team which was entirely made of women. They jumped in the pool and began their laps and the coach wasn’t in sight to my surprise. Watching them, I tread water in silence.

Perhaps this reeks of arbitrary self-consciousness.
