Hydrophobic

1. I'm afraid of deep water. Really afraid! I don't know how to swim so that may be a part of it. I've signed up for swim lessons twice but chickened out twice.
2. One out of my four children is also afraid of the water. I signed him up for swim lessons (Yes, I do note the hypocrisy.)  I paid him $15 to take the class.  His last lesson is tomorrow and he is still not a swimmer.  But he no longer panics when water hits his face.
3.  In a meeting my manager told me about how she was shocked one of her 23 year old employees doesn't know how to swim.  I didn't confess that this 37 year old employee doesn't swim either.
4.  John and I flew to Florida.  I looked out the window before we landed and our plane was circling the ocean!  No one told me the plane would fly over water!
5.  I nearly broke up with John when we were dating because he did not believe my fear and he tried dragging me into the pool.
6.  We just booked a cruise.  Yes, a cruise!  We will be spending 5 days on a boat.  Over water.  Mama mia!
7.  My sister-in-law told me last week that she used to teach swimming lessons. I think I may pull on my big girl panties and ask her to teach me how to swim.

Learn how to swim. Consider it an exercise class and don't be embarrassed. It's a life skill. And definitely keep on the lessons for your kids. Much easier to learn when you are a kid as I bet you can relate. Good luck.
