So… First day back at swimming today. After a long break of six years. And even back then, I had barely learned anything before I quit. Because the coach wanted me to go into the deeper end of the pool and I wanted to stay in the … err… Kiddie Corner.
Have always been scared of the water. I know. I know. A piscean and scared of the water? Well, they do exist.
Anyway, so first day today, and what did I learn? That:
1. I’m still scared shitless at the sight of a pool.
2. I have the lung capacity of a seventy year old chain smoker; probably worse.
3. And most importantly, if I’m drowning, one of you need to come and rescue me. I can’t swim!!
So what exactly am I happy about then, you wonder?
The fact that I will go back tomorrow. And again, the day after. And the day after it. Until I can swim. 🙂
