Swimming lessons

I remember when I used to take swimming lessons in the summer at the Turner center. The further along you get, the harder the tests become to become “certified.” The strangest thing I remember is they would make us jump in off the high-dive with blue jeans on. We obviously had our swimming trunks on underneath. We’d then take off the blue jeans, tie the legs, and flip the sopping-wet pants over our head to trap air in the pants. This was designed to be a temporary floatation device. Not sure why I remembered that or felt the need to share, but at least I found 5 minutes to blog, so there you go. Haven’t watched any new movies yet, but look forward to any reviews/suggestions out there.

    Actually it would be the Semiquincentennial celebration, but since we’re mearusing posts and not years, it’d probably be the Semiquincentpostal celebration. I love Wikipedia.
