Firstly, I must admit, I cant swim AT ALL.
I got very very tempted when I saw RD and R having fun in the water.
and oh for the records, R’s initial euphoria has gone, and now she cries when she goes to the pool..darn! I shouldnt have celebrated so soon…but keeping my fingers crossed!
and oh so, like I mentioned, I was so so tempted looking at RD and R, that I went to the pool yesterday.
In a *ahem* swimsuit and swimming cap.
Yes, at last after 31 years, I am finally NOT CONSCIOUS of my body. I care two hoots that my back is showing or my legs are showing. This swimsuit is knee length with a kind of skirt and has short sleeves. Its EXTREMELY Comfortable for a swimsuit and yes, I didnt feel one bit consicous…infact the day I tried it on, I was moving around the pool OUTSIDE water without worrying one bit or caring that some one is watching me.
*Ahem* I have really grown up *gives a proud look*
and yesterday, I got the cap (no one is allowed inside the pool without a cap!) and I went in. and I even could float for 1.345682 micro milli seconds..go figure!
and wow! it sure is addictive…I have decided to go EVERY saturday and sunday with RD and R…RD swims around in the water like a bloody fish..gah! I am realy really jealous of him..R and I were using the float, clinging to it for dear life, but hey we are trying..really trying..thats when I am not busying cajoling R to stop crying…you know something, I discovered that you can not swim and cry at the same time…*Giving Newton look*
anyways, lets hope this is a start to a whole new learning for a lifetime…even if it started 25 years late, I hope I can learn to swim like RD by the time I am 40 hehehehe 🙂
my only problem –
The swimming costume is so so expensive – Rs. 750
Swimming cap – Rs. 175
I nearly fell off into the pool with my clothes on when I heard them say the price…but like RD says, look at it as a long term investment..trust the guy to go finance even for a swimming costume..
Please pray for me, that I dont jinx this
