the dreaded swim suit
Thursday, February 28, 2013
a friend i used to work with joined the navy, and he can't swim. he has been taking swim lessons but not doing well, he feels panic in the water. that's where i come in, i am a former navy girl myself and i went to state in high school for swimming. i was about to offer to help him and then i thought I HAVE TO PUT ON A SWIM SUIT IN PUBLIC. i was about to change my mind about helping him, and then i thought how totally ridicolous that is to not help a fellow sailor and friend because i don't want to expose my squishiness. really? really! so being out of shape is getting in the way of me, my life, things i want to do, etc.
well eff that! i'm getting my lazy ass off the couch and teaching that fellow how to swim. i mean how much courage does it take to take swimming lessons when you are a man in your 30's, that's embarrasing for him and he is not letting it get in his way! i can squeeze my squishy ass into a swim suit and swallow my pride!
