as the clock struck midnight...

i heard that a man is trying to swim the length of the amazon!wololo! his logic that if he can swim the river then palistinians and israelis can live in peace. ha!if only things were that 'easy'. do you think he'll make it?
its funny, but I also want to go swimming but in chlorinated water. Give my heart some lovin. its been a while,maybe 2plus years. i used to love swimming then it all changed...
it all began in std. 6. i matured early, physically that is. anyway, having been in a girls school, i wasn't too bothered about it. sadly, the school I was in was one of those that had high KCPE failure rates, so a quick switch later and I found myself in another school. it was mixed i.e boys and girls. my life has never been the same again.
(note: at this point i still loved swimming.)
so on my first day at my new school, i walk in and hear whispers, mumblings, beady eyes darting about...aki young boys are not innocent!my new sweater was fitting and you jua school outfitters sweaters when theyre new and have enough starch to put all potatoes to shame..anyway, to cut a long story short, from then i wore buggy sweaters and hardly ever removed my sweater throughout the rest of primary and high school. (hand flying to forhead)twas sad!
oh, i forgot about the swimming, I tried swimming in a tisho, but that was just cumbersome. so i tried other tactics...loiter,loiter around the pool, in the blink of an eye, youve whipped off the towel and youre flying through the air still struggling out of youre tisho. splash! you land in the water. swish! youre tisho lands on the side of the pool.woo!lakini once the adrenalin from youre theatrics has worn off you think there's any energy left to tred water! and then wacha when time comes to get out! and you thought youve seen action movies!
so syke for swimming slowly dwindled...i'm makng a come back
haha, aki its funny the way swimming costumes tend to go for lunch (wedgies)

Aaah - the curse of Swimming Classes.
Kwanza, the joy of swimming brought to a rude stop when you realise that you are not the only one smiling happily - the girls have decided to pop out for some sunshine. How is it you never realise anything's amiss when in water? I have an inborn habit of jipapasaring underwater first before i emerge!

I wish I had the will of those mamas who do not care what is showing out of their costumes and hit the water( as well as the beach) .

lol. My swim instructor gave up all hope in teaching me since i am not buoyant...at all...i swear a rocks sinks slower than i do...haki...once he tried floating me and after about a full minute at the bottom of the pool, i was retrieved in a hurry and given explicit direction to stay out of the pool! So i walk...in the pool...yes...flap my arms about...get out...bask...gawk...
