yes, I did mean swimming…

A few years back, like 7 or so or in 2002, I dated this weird guy I had no business dating. He was a fairly nice guy, although definitely not the in the top 8 smartest.

His glory days were from when he played freshman football in highschool, drove a 96 300zx, had $25k in savings 3 years prior, and had worked for When I came across him, he was working at the co-op, drove a 85 300zx with a huge dent in front quarter panel, had no money on savings and the by the sounds of it had spent a lot of it on lap dances, had about $8,000 in credit card debt and had dreams about being a pro bowler…

So anyway…

We worked together. We both got off of work around 10pm. So I told him that I really wanted to go swimming after work. I told him not to forget to bring his suit and a towel.

We went to Kennydale Beach on Lake Washington. I love this beach for whatever reason and also they don’t really lock the gates at night, the park is right along a main road without it’s own parking lot.

So we get there and go out to the end of the dock. He seems really excited about spending time with me and such. I start to take of my shirt and he stops.He noticed I had my swimsuit on, apparently it wasn’t what he was expecting at all. He had only brought a towel.

“Oh, swimming.”

Of course I say “yes, swimming!” I prpbably go on about how swimming is really rad and its is one of the first things I remember learning to do other than basic life skills. I heart swimming!! And then it clicks..

“Oh?!? You thought I meant skinning dipping didn’t you?”

His response was that “No! Um, well yeah, kind of.” Of course he was pretty embarrassed about this, but did I care? Nope. I swam in the lake for an hour while he sat on the dock doing or thinking who knows what.

Yes, I did mean swimming.
