Today, I scored my first goal...in a game, in the deep end, treading water, with people blocking me, and when we weren't using real goals just the ladders (so it was small, real small). The funny part is that after I threw it, I went under water and by the time I came up the game had moved on that I didn't know until later if it went in.
The bossy junior high girl (I am sure I was her back in the day) asked me if I was opposed to swim caps today. I said no, and she offered to go get me one - she was worried that my hair would impede my talent. No, my lack of talent will impede my talent, not my hair.
