Swimming Lesson

We went to the local beach and played in the

sand for hours, my younger brother and me.

Mom and my other four siblings enjoyed the

ocean waves. I'd watch my mother dive off the

pier and swim to shore.

One day it was decided for us to join this

school of fish. I don't remember who carried

me out upon their shoulders or my brother 15

months my junior. They/He/She let me go and

expected me to swim away as my younger brother

did and the others before me. I gasped and

gasped. I was lifted up and dumped back into

the sand. What do you call a fish that cannot

swim----Chicken of the Sea.

Don't worry, be Happy
