When I learned early on at college that Roy had never learned how to swim, I was shocked, appalled even. Swimming was such a normal part of my childhood that I couldn’t believe anyone my age didn’t know how to do it – I’ve since met other non-swimmers.
I’ve never actually attempted to properly instruct Roy how to swim, though I certainly had the itch once I got him in a shallow pool in Seattle. Over the years friends of ours have attempted to teach him, but his reluctance/apathy create a non-ideal learning environment. Roy claims, without fail, each and every instance he’s sunk like a rock.
I have no reason to doubt him.
