This is strange to me.
My goofy husband can design space craft, knows how to fly a plane and do crazy loop-de-loops, is more articulate than anyone I know, and yet he can't swim. Until now.
He has had hydrophobia from when he was a little boy. He nearly drowned at the beach, so ever since then he has been scared to go into deep water. But this weekend he finally learned how to swim! First he learned to dog-paddle, which was such a big feat for him that it made me teary-eyed. I know it sounds funny, because little 2-year-olds can even do it - but I was so proud of him. And now he is learning how to swim freestyle. He's got the arm-strokes down pat, but just needs to learn how to kick properly. It's so cute - when he kicks, he stirs up a huge splash, like little kids do when they're learning how to swim with a kickboard.
(He would sooo hate that I put these photos up, don't tell him!)
I really don't have any phobias. The closest thing that I have to that kind of thing is my fear of being stung by a bee or a wasp. And my fear of throwing up. I haven't thrown up since I was thirteen years old, so I have built it up in my head to be this huge ordeal. Ridiculous, I know!
Is there anything that you are scared of, even though you know it's silly?
