5 swimming things about me

  1. I learned how to swim by swimming under water
  2. My dentist at the time taught me how to swim
  3. I swam in Eisenhower Pool every day in my senior year of high school
  4. I have a recurring dream where I'm treading water alone and at night in Lake Springfield
  5. In the dream thousands of mussels are trying to attach themselves to me

I learned to swim by checking a book out of the library. It should be no surprise that I don't have the best stroke -- but I don't worry about drowning.

This past summer I tried laps at the refubed city pool. I think I'd benefit from some proper instruction as I suck in a bit too much water.

4&5. That is not a happy dream to have once, let alone have it recur. If it were me, I wouldn't set foot in Lake Springfield. Do you get rescued? Save yourself? Is the water at least warm? The older I get, the less I like going into cold water.
