I don't wear a wetsuit; it gives the ocean a sporting chance.
Molly Nance, Lincoln, Nebraska
When the checkout kid at the sporting goods store asks you what you are going to use the whistle for and you reply, "so I know when it's time to feed."
@timsroot that can easily backfire. Game plan for end wet was my kayaker to toss it in front on me and Id swim up, grab it and feed while she caught back up to me. unfortunately my last bottle (approx mile 18) sank when she tossed it forward. And it was my last bottle!!!
You have to go to school to explain to the teacher that your child isn't a liar after said child comes home crying from school because she shared in circle time that she was late to school because "Mommy swam Alcatraz this morning and they had to wait on some boats to go by..." and the teacher said she shouldn't tell tall tales.
