That's what I used to fear. Jumping from the diving board at the YMCA - plunging into the deep end. I had horrible visions of these underwater cages opening up and sharks being released. Or alligators. Either way, terrifying. Yeah....so I wasn't keen on swimming in the deep end. Our imaginations can run so wild! Even now, as a somewhat grown-up woman, I hate it when I'm swimming in the lake at our cottage and someone starts doing the Jaws theme. Makes me shiver - and swim back to shore mighty fast!
The irrational fears aren't keeping me out of the pool now though - with the heatwave weather we're having - I'll take my chances in the pool.
