The only reason I come out of the water is when my skin gets all wrinkled and puckered up and shrivelled like a raisin. Swimming is just so relaxing, and it reminds me of when I was a kid. I can just feel the stress leaving my body as I float and stare up at the clouds. It’s so freeing, and I’m buoyant and weightless and don’t feel weighted down, restricted and held back by my body and my weight. I feel light-weight, graceful,lithe, and limber like I used to be.I can even still do handstands in the shallow end! I used to do back-flips off the diving board too only if I tried that now I’d probably end up either breaking my back,paralyzing,or killing myself.

Swimming is the best form of exercise because you don’t even realize that it’s exercise because it’s also fun. I love diving as well and going along underwater skimming my belly along the bottom of the pool  like a seal or an otter. When I was a kid I used to pretend that I was an otter, a mermaid, a dolphin, a penguin….I still remember doing the “Ass Cracker” off the diving board at camp. I remember YRS of swimming lessons and how I almost got the lifeguard level at 13 except I didn’t have the endurance to swim all the required laps of the pool due to my breathing problem.I just LOVE the water and wish I had gills and could breathe underwater.

Screen Shot 07-15-16 at 07.35 PM…..and here he is NOW: fat, bald, and no longer a “hunk.” I’d be lying if I said it didn’t give me *GREAT* satisfaction to know that time hasn’t been kind to him and that his good looks didn’t last.Serves him right.

Ha ha.

Isn’t karma great? 🙂
