RD asks me to jump into the pool from the side and just let my body be. In the past I struggle to come up breathless, spluttering water, opening my mouth and struggling to get out of water.
No said RD, just relax…jump and let the buoyancy do its work.
Easy for him to say that, I think, he has gills inside his nose.
But when you are married to a guy for 7 years, you learn to trust him a teeny weeny bit.
Next time just let go, trust me he says.
heheheheh! reminded me of some romantic movie when the guy tells the girl to let go or something like that.
Anyways, so I jump in. and remember RD’s instructions..and just let go.
and I come out. All by myself. I dont splutter, I dont struggle and I am breathing normally.
NOW I know how Archimedes felt eh?
How was it, the gilled man asks me.
Awesome I reply grinning like the cat who swallowed the canary.
I am going to do it again..and I go again, and again and again.
Everytime I come up, its feels like a miracle. Its awesome.
Try it without the float says RD.
Errr…I know I should trust the guy, but hey, my trust has its limits.
Trust me, he says looking into my spectacled eyes.
Darn! I should stop watching these romantic movies.
I trust him, remove the float, take a deep breath, and JUMP.
AND I COME UP AGAIN..Awesome I say again.
there is an old gentleman, watching RD and I celebrate my discovery of buoyancy and he smiles at both of us with the all knowing look 🙂
I think marriage vows should be re-written.
In Sickness, In Health and In Buoyancy!
Have a buoyant week ahead 🙂
