    Am I Weird?

    I was really crazy about water as a kid, although I learned to swim rather late for a water freak. Anyway, I was drowning many times because even before I could swim, I felt so good in water that I wasn't scared at all, so I was never careful. Can't say that drowning is pleasant...
