Today, I had to go take swimming lessons because my mom has a fear I'll drown and I'm totally afraid of swimming anyway and never get anywhere near water. My instructor? A high school classmate of mine. My fellow swimming classmates? 5 and 6 year old kids. FML

So shouldn't you be old enough to refuse wanting to take swim lessons? and who cares if you don't know how to swim or are terrified of the water... why do people make big deals out of nothing?

Join the military. They'll make sure you learn to swim.

On a side note: I find it somewhat ironic that I'm listening to "Into the Ocean," while reading this.

Does your mom have a late-onset fear that you'll drown? Shouldn't she have been more afraid when you were little? My local Y has classes for adults who never learned to swim.
