... you walk into an old limestone and timber lodge at a state park and think, nice, it smells like a cave in here...
Letting the days go by / water flowing underground
Into the blue again / in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones / there is water underground.

You're a college student who can't get work done because you're looking up caves on the internet and daydreaming about giant passages.

You post to cavechat at 0340

Your bosses bosses boss stops you in the hall and asks if you have seen "that new caving movie"

Hopes there is a revolution in Mexico so expeditions will stop getting cancelled...

Your clothes are so dirty the lint filter on the dryer has more cave dirt than lint in it

you got back from caving in Kentucky a week ago but still have the dirty gear bag open in your living room because it has made your apartment smell like cave and you love it and don't want to wash the yummy smell away.

...the thing you worried about first when you blacked out at capoeira and then across the next few days was "oh no...what if this means I can't go caving next weekend?" and then wanted to cry when you realized you really shouldn't because there would be vertical even and although you are sure it's nothing you know you should be safe and wait for the test results.
