I’m sitting here poolside watching my two beautiful children with their swim teacher. Swim lessons are mandatory for my children, I don’t want them growing up like me, an adult who doesn’t know how to swim. Of course, my children don’t know that I don’t know how to swim, it is even a secret that I somehow managed to keep from my wife even after all of these years together. The truth is that it isn’t just that I don’t know how to swim, I am mind-numbingly terrified of water; but for some reason, I have no idea why.
