SWIMMING IN JANUARY PART 2

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Foto. They contemplate  Summer Holidays, Beach, Sun and Sand and SWIMMING. Lizzy tried to think about swimming in the last post but drifted into BEACHES. This Summer has been filled blissfully with SWIMMING. This summer Lizzy saw a little lass swim for the first time. I AM A MERMAID- said she. Lizzy is a SWIMMER – not distances and she always feared she would be asked one day to do as Grace Darling did and brave fierce waters to rescue sailors from a sinking boat or swim across shark infested waters. 60 years later she simply SWIMS. Noone has as yet asked her to swim for 24 hours from a sinking ship to reach a wave battered shore upon which she would likely perish at the last moment. She simply swims and prefers swimming with the children to swimming with dolphins. She saw a small girl try to ride a unicorn in a pool this summer. Last Summer, she swam at New Year in a large pool on top of The Hill on full moon. This year, He finally let sun shine on his skinny legs and now he might be able to swim.

Swimming is not a sport. Swimming is a way to keep from drowning. That’s just common sense!

My Mom said she learned how to swim when someone took her out in the lake and threw her off the boat. I said, “Mom, they weren’t trying to teach you how to swim.”

Paula Poundstone quotes (American Comic, b.1959)

It is easy to swim, when another holds up your head.  (Danish)

“Well, my swimming pool problems are solved. I just found myself miles and miles of open lanes.”

“What is that smell?”

“That’s East River.”

“You’re swimming in the East River? The most heavily trafficked, overly contaminated waterway on the eastern seaboard?”

“Technically, Norfolk has more gross tonnage.”

“How could you swim in that water?”

“I saw a couple other guys out there.”

“Swimming?”

“Well… floating. They weren’t moving much, but they were out there.”

– Kramer and Jerry Seinfeld, in “The Nap”
