These are fortuitous images from my recent trip to Strasbourg.
Today's theme was chosen by Kerry. Kerry’s post at Ed and Reub has some rings in the header photo that remind me exactly of diving rings from learning to swim. OK, except for being linked.
These weighted, colored, rings were diabolical instruments of torture. The swim instructor would throw them into the deep end, and you had to go get them. And you had to get them faster than your neighbor. And you had to keep trying for the really deep one, with the whole class wishing you’d get on with it already.
I hate diving. No matter what, I get sinuses full of water. I get sinuses full of water just doing flip turns. Also, I don’t swim very fast. I could swim all day, just not fast. So the diving ring thing was right up there in the top three of why I didn’t like swim lessons. Just thought I'd share!
Anyway, for the rest of the Shootout, click here. Have a good weekend!
