Get yourself some arm floaties! Or next time don't try to practice swimming in a public pool.
Aw it's ok..don't feel so bad..I don't know how to swim either..you're probably better at it then I am.
A lot of people don't spend enough time around water to need to learn how to swim. I know in my town, most of the public pools closed years ago. There's only one left and not everyone has access to it. I didn't learn how to swim until I was 18 and I didn't start driving lessons until I was 26. Any other milestones I should be tripping over myself to get done, please let me know. I've got LOADS of time to fritter away.
I have a friend, and when he was younger his dad (who is now in jail for other reasons) tried to "teach" him how to swim by throwing him into a lake and leaving him there. He almost drowned. He's completely terrified of water since that incident, and no, he doesn't know how to swim- with a perfectly good reason.
Doing The Napoleon Dynamite dance in the pool wont help you swim.
