I was chosen by Churlita to pick this week’s theme, so I chose “water”. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
I used to have a huge fear of water. That little kid in the photo with the face all twisted into disgust…or fear…was me. I don’t remember how long I was afraid of water, but I’m guessing I didn’t like it at that age. I also hated, HATED when my mom would rinse my newly shampooed hair by carefully pouring water over my head. I didn’t mind being in the bath, I just didn’t like water being poured over my head. At least once, I freaked out and jumped out of the tub and ran into my room. My poor parents. I gave them a generous share of frightening moments. Anyway, I was afraid of water for the longest time.
At a later age, I had a fascination with water, but I still couldn’t swim. Here’s me and a friend of mine playing in the waters of Lake Erie. I’m the one in the purplish raincoat. According to the expression on my face, the water must’ve been hilarious. Something was, at least.
Sitting in a whirpool in Tuscon, Arizona – First plane trip I ever took, I believe! We stayed in an apartment which one of my brothers rented out for us for a few days and I was thrilled that there was both a pool and a hottub. Can’t remember how old I was back then, but I was young. Probably twelve or thirteen.
Finally, how does one apply her swimming skills to everyday life? She along with some of her friends jump in the pool of a hotel during a bachelorette party. Cuz we’re wild and unleashed.
I could post so many other water photos, but I thought I’d go with an inner theme this time. Now for the next chooser….I choose Ksra of “You Learn Something New (Almost) Everyday”! You’re it, Ksra!
