So I am booking swimming lessons and I am freaking out.
I wasn’t nervous until I had actually spoke to someone and they asked “how comfortable are you in the water.” and I replied with “uuuuuh comfortable and water don’t come in the same sentence with me. I want to be a mermaid but my tail doesn’t like being in the water.”
In hindsight I realise I sound a little less than sane, but hey. He laughed and I continued with “What I mean is I hate being submerged in the water and get scared when people come near me in the water…so you know… I’ll be a great student.”
In all honesty he was very lovely about it and said “don’t worry we have had a lot worse than mermaid tails that don’t like being in water. We’ll be sure to get you swimming- when do you want to start?”
I. Am. Freaking. Out.
Have I actually just decided to go to someone who is trained in dealing with awkward freaking out adults who can’t swim? Blimey… I think I need my fever checked. What if he actually expects me to SWIM? I did NOT think this through at all.
Wish I could just jump in and be all like “THE OCEAN IS MY HOME…I’M FREEEE” But instead I go “I’m drowning in the puddle! Heeeeeelp!!”
Basically guys I need some moral support here. Am I the only one that wants something improving then freaks out when it comes to the point of change? Surely I’m not the only one…right? right?
Oh God… I need a cuppa.
