Sink Or Swim

So I got out to Devil's Lake today to go for a swim. Geeze. If I thought I was bad at floating when I was fat, I'm a freaking rock now. Glug glug splutter ... bubbles.

I don't get it. Why can't I float? Even with my lungs filled with air, I kick back, lay on the water, and ... sink like a rock!

The only way that I can stay above water is to actually move around. You know, swim. Which in theory is fine, but then what do you do when you get tired? Head to shore is what I have to do.

Oh well. I'm actually not a bad swimmer at all under water. And I can do okay on the surface. I just can't float. I don't get it.

Anyway, sorry to any friends I didn't stop by and talk to that were out at Devil's Lake today. You were probably on the north shore, mixing it up with the madness, while I had a nice little spot alone on the south shore by the bird mound. Sometimes I just don't feel social. Sorry. And I love the bird mound. It seems like each year it picks up a new sacred stone.
