I'm going swimming today after work. Last Tuesday I swam for the first time in over a year and the first thing I did was drop my goggles at the 12 foot mark. Spent 15 minutes wrestling with a 13 foot pole trying to get the suckers out. It was quite a scene. So today will be my second time to go. I will not drop my goggles this time. It's also time for a new bathing suit, so if you'd like to get me one, here's what I want. Size 18, please. I'm a biggun.
Last year, I discovered that I don't really know how to swim properly. I always feel so silly next to people who were on the swim team in high school. I don't know how to breathe properly or move through the water without great bit splashes. It's embarrassing. But I press on. So in preparing for this afternoon's swim, I had a lesson with Jimmy.
