They Know When I Am There!

I swim regularly at Calcot Spa and used to participate in the Aqua Classes where I made a lot of friends. Now I prefer to swim earlier in the mornings and chug out 30 lengths of crawl. One day last week I had left the swimming a bit late and the aqua class arrived and so I was restricted to the "fast lane". As I swum against the choppy tidal waters of 100 water hog, one of my friends shouted "We knew you were here because of your shoes" !!!! Well - you actually could not miss my shoes because they are so HUGE and I do not put them into my locker, I leave them tidily under the bench. I thought this remark needed a response so I likened the aqua class to the signature picture on BBC One of the hippos that swim round and round in a circle - oh yes, I can see their fat little legs under the water through my goggles. A good time was had by all!

They don't look that big!

I wish I could swim! i nearly drowned the last inspector who tried to demonstrate to a class how to get me to lie in my back.
I feel he left me alone for much of the time after that and I left the class after 2 years...... still not being able to swim!

Nuts in May

I thought the same, they don't look THAT BIG. What size shoe are you?

Well done by the way on doing all that swimming.
