How I spent the past few days:
No, I was AT the lake.
My getting into the water this time was an EPIC FAIL.
It was a bit more like:
I've been voted:
(*) Most likely to drown 30 people who try to save me if I fall into the water,
(*) Most likely to be the type of person that you have to knock out before you try to rescue them from water.
And I told them---I'd actually prefer to be just KNOCKED OUT rather than unexpectedly find myself in the water. I really do believe that's the key: I can mentally prepare myself if I know that I'm about to be IN the water. The random-suddenly-falling-in that happened over the weekend---freak out of EPIC proportion. Clearly, I've got to continue working on my water issues.
