Swimming. Hmmmm...

Hi. My name is Aizan. I am 32 years old and I can't swim. At best I can float and do a couple of breaststrokes before running out of breath.

I have entertained the idea of going for swimming lessons but I don't really know where to look for an instructor. Plus I'm a scrooge.

So I was pleasantly surprised when Groupon posted an offer for 6, 30-minute swimming lessons for RM88. I kind of have some inhibitions on going at it alone. If I am gonna make a fool of myself, it is best to do it in the company of friends.

Unfortunately they are not as keen as me. And although I have my insecurities, I am NOT going to let it be a stumbling block for me to learn something new. So yeah, I have already booked my lessons and I shall make a fool of myself starting from 19 February 2012.

Hopefully in 7 weeks' time I will be a better swimmer than I am now.

Break a leg. Besides, you will look great in two piece.

Lol! Thanks for the vote of confidence Matt. But I don't think I'll be wearing a 2-piece any time soon.
