Inspired by my recent gradual weight loss I found myself looking through the rack of end of season swimwear at our local Trade Secrets. A red one piece caught my eye. It was made by a famous "hold-in-your-tummy-undies" company. The price tag was an original $160 but was slashed to just under $20. I couldn't resist trying it on.
And so I found myself being challenged by all three kids to join them in the public swimming pool that week as they did lessons and lengths. I tried to suggest that maybe the swimmers weren't ready to be seen in public yet but I was outnumbered. I'd like to tell you I took to it like a duck to water but no, sadly my memories of swimming length after graceful length were about 25 years old and I looked more like a drowning wombat.
Those swimmers are good, they just fall short of performing bloomin' miracles!
