Flipper Feet

I went to the pool yesterday, and as I strolled along the pool deck contemplating the bizarre combination of tan lines I currently sport, an older gentleman walked up to me. Nice guy with a big smile.

“Size ten?”

I look at him confused.

“Your feet,” he says.

And then, he looks at me more closely, and realizes that I’m not who he thought I was. He explains: There’s a woman who swims here, and she kicks really fast. She said it was because she has size ten feet.

He thought I was the woman with the size ten feet who kicks really fast.

Well, I’m not The Woman. But I do have size ten feet. And sometimes, I kick pretty fast.

Silly swimmers.
