swim swim swim

A few years back, I lived just a 100 mtrs away from it. Now, I am staying some 7 kms away.
A few years back, the charges were just 300 Rs for a month. Now it is 1800 Rs for 21 days.

Well, there is a time for everything.

Then, I was busy finishing my studies. (Atleast trying to.)
Now, like a railway station where the train stops and bus station where the bus stops, I have a workstation.

I am learning swimming finally. Thanks Shub for suggesting that I go directly and enquire. It has been a futile exercise trying through the net and Just Dial services.

Some years back, ex had asked me what would I do if he drowned? To the romantic me, Titanic’s “You Jump, I jump” came to mind and I said we would drown together. (ROTFLMAO) The attention-craving ass was not pleased and compared notes with what his ex had told him. I got pissed and added, ”Actually, as you drown, I’ll do some neat back strokes”. I’ll be learning to do it now. Yeah!

YOur dicussion with you x reminded me of one song in "My Fair Lady".. wonder if you have seen that movie.. lovely movie.. the song goes somewhat like this, i dont remember it all that well though "Just wait, till we are swimming in the sea, when you yell you are gonna drown, I will get dressed and go to town, hahaha, Enry Iggins, hohoho, Enry Iggins" :D

swimming is one of the most important skills and everyone should learn it. I also learnt properly last summer although my basic training started years back when i was in a boarding school. Back then I used to bunk like the regular classes.
I really love reading ur blog during office hours.. hehehehe..:)
