I can swim, as long as it's not in the deep end of a pool.

We've had a nice in-ground pool for over 20 years but I rarely ever use it.

I was a lifeguard when I was 17. Used to be a fish (no wonder my sign is Pisces!). Once I got into my 20s though I really didn't do much swimming even for myself then. When we moved into our current house I was thrilled it had an inground pool so I have swum as much as possible in the last 11 years.

I think all kids should be taught to swim or at least how to float and tread water as soon as possible. I'm always extremely mindful of my niece and nephew when they're over. They can swim now enough to save themselves if they had to, but they still aren't comfortable with the deep end which concerns me.

That's my husband and his brother. Actually, also our sister-in-law and their kids. They'll go over to it only with "noodles".

Same here...I'm only 4'11", so I can't even touch the bottom and it freaks me out. I like swimming, though--when I was a kid, you couldn't get me out of the pool!

I'd say I'm a decent swimmer overall.

I'm a pretty good swimmer but I don't really swim in that deep water. I'll probably be scared to swim in like 20 ft water without a lifejacket. But I can do the basic strokes like backstroke, breaststroke and stuff like that you know.

I never learned how to swim. A neighbor gave me a few lessons when I was about 11 years old, but I didn't follow through.
So when I am at the beach, I only wade in about waist deep.

Yeah, my mom had my sibs and I in these swimming classes for babies when we were babies. Considering the fact I was ~12 to ~14 months old by the time I was walking on my own, it's pretty safe to say I was swimming before I was walking, as well. Never been afraid of the water, as far as I can remember. I do get a little nervous if I'm in the deep end, but that's only because of the pool filters at the bottom. I have no ****ing idea why, but they scare me. (incidentally, this reminds me of Guts, by Chuck Palahniuk. Read at your own risk, and don't say I didn't warn you!) After a bit, though, I'm OK.

I had yet another bad water experience in the summer of 2007, when I travelled to California to visit my friend Brenda. I ended up going to a water park with her, her kids and one of the neighbors. There was a water slide called the Vertigo Body Bowl there - very long and twisty. Brenda warned me that it was VERY fast but I wanted to try all 4 slides there. So I went and it was so fast I felt like I was breaking the sound barrier!!

This water slide drops you into an eight-foot section of the pool. There is a lifeguard there at all times, but I had a problem. Since they make you take your glasses off before going on the slide, I couldn't see him. I went under a couple of times before he finally fished me out. It was very scary, and I was pretty dazed. He had to ask me if I remembered what day it was, etc. I did. I didn't go back on the slide, btw.
