Do you know how to SWIM?

I cannot swim to save my life. I remember when i around 6 years old we had our 1st swimming lesson at primary school. I was at the front of the queue near the deep end. They instructor asked me if i know how to swim. I replied back saying that i won a gold medal for doing the 50m. She said excellent and told me to jump in. And so i did but i was getting nowhere. My feet was touching the bottom and i was just moving my arms up and down. It was soo embarrasing.

What a shame! I still don't know how to swim despite my dad's effort in bringing me to all sorts of beaches and swimming pools when I was little. Sometimes I do feel embarrassed to tell people that I don't know how to swim. But it's fine because I can still go with my friends to the beaches, I just lay there and enjoy the sun-bathing when they are enjoying the sea. I feel better now about it as I grow older, I understand more that different people have different advantages and disadvantages. All I can say is that it's not in my blood to swim *laughs*.

yes i do :) or so, i think. i haven't swim in a long time. i used to take swimming lessons when i was younger and a couple of years after that, i seemed to be allergic to the chlorine in the swimming pool. so after that i was pretty scared to go into the pool T_T
