Summer is here, and it brings back many memories of swim team.
I hated swim team.
Like, my-sister-and-I-used-to-hide-in-the-shower-stalls-at-the-pool-and-cling-to-each-other-when-the-were-calling-our-name-over-the-loudspeaker-because-it-was-our-turn-to-race hate swim team.
I was bad at swimming. Very, very bad. Not playing at the pool swimming. During the summer I lived at the pool… playing Marco Polo, Spider. But competitive lap swimming? No.
Our team had 3 levels, low, medium and advanced. I was so bad, that I has demoted from the low level to be on a special team that consisted solely of me and a girl with cerebral palsy.
That is all.
