Ill have you swimming like a fish in an hour. Ill bet you dont like getting water in your face .
No, when I was little my parents
didn't like me getting water in my face, farmer!
First, I apparently wanted to jump into the ocean (from the ship we migrated to Australia on) at every opportunity. I'm told I found the water very inviting!
Then, I apparently nearly drowned in a duck pond. (I was too young at the time to remember any of these episodes.)
So my parents had this alarmist attitude that combination of Olga & water would surely lead to disaster.
It was a case of not being allowed
to do the normal swimming, water baby stuff that is usual for children in Oz.
(Plus, I'd say, an over-protective attitude, born of their war/refugee experiences.)
The end result was that I've been a life-long crappy swimmer.
