1. Just curious, did you learn both things at the same time?
Because you might have been doing it wrong... ;)

6. Wow.

16. Ah I see
I grew up in the suburbs where a kid without a bike was like an alcoholic without a beer.

21. I am READY to learn!
But...I have more important things to focus on. Like getting my degree in English than going to law school.

law school is great, what kind of law you thinking about. Anyhow man, what you should do is, when you get time go to a pool and get lessons, I am sure you can learn.

13. I don't know how to swim, either.
My mother was deathly afraid of the water, and she was also convinced that we would get polio if we went swimming.

Did I mention that she is nuts?

My brothers learned to swim as adults. I should get around to it, too, I guess.

28. do you know what you've been missing?
does water scare you? it should. You best learn how to swim, you never know when you might need it.
