Part of the reason is my size. I don't look good in shorts. The fat rolls on my legs jiggle when I walk. And I'm not even going to think about getting into a swimsuit. Don't you think about it either. HEY! You thought about it. Cheaters.
I know how to swim. That's not a problem. I will (used to) swim in swimming pools. Not in lakes. Not after I watched so many scary movies where dead people come up and grab your ankles. Maybe they were alive pretending to be dead. I don't know.
One of very worse fears in the world is deep water. You won't catch me out saleing.. I mean sailing for that reason. (Clever, huh? I thought so.)
You'd think a born and raised Florida girl wouldn't be like this. I wouldn't mind sitting on the shore though. Unless it was too hot. Then I'd be in the air conditioning.
