Then We've Got Bigger Problems

I don't know how to swim.

This bothers my wife as she recently expressed in an e-mail...

"What if we want to go on a cruise? Or Kayak in the Hudson? Or there's a tsunami?"

A tsunami?

It could happen, and if it did, I suppose knowing how to swim would give you a boost in potential survival. Maybe not a big one, but a boost nonetheless.

I've been on a dozen or more cruises and my very poor swimming skills have never been an issue. As for kayaking...can we say life-preserver?

And let's face it, if your town is hit by a tsunami, you better be about 20 stories up in the accounting tower to have any chance.

Maybe Josie is just trying to get you to exercise? This swimming thing didn't seem to bother her when you went to the Jersey shore last summer. Has your life insurance policy expired since then?

Cheers.
