You only get to walk away and pout once.
You only score the important interview once.
You only skateboard once.
Doing the Butterfly
Getting up early.
How bad they are at land sports.
How much water they swallow on a given day
How to be the most festive during competition
Keeping track of what event or lane they’re in
Never getting enough of the water
People not understanding that just because you’re in water doesn’t mean you don’t get thirsty.
That no one cares about the sport until the Olympics.
That no one takes the sport seriously.
Trying to work out after not getting in the pool for a while.
Water in the ears.
When non-swimmers whine about the water being too cold.
