The Swim

My name is Paul, and I can’t swim.

It’s not that I haven’t been interested in learning to swim (although it hasn’t been at the top of my to-do list), it’s just that I never got around to it. I can’t swim and, as a bonus, I have a fear of drowning. Of course, said fear was created when I was in a friend’s swimming pool when I was a kid, and was knocked from behind, causing me to do a 360 in the water.

I might swim someday, but I just hope to never be in a situation where I need to swim – like, say, on a boat in the ocean. I figure I’ll play it safe and remain a landlubber.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
