When I try to get into the pool, if that water is cold, I'll admit it. I'm a 'one inch at a time' kind of guy. First the feet. After about a half hour, when they warm up, I'll put the lower leg in and so on. The whole process takes about three and a half hours.

I know it's an agonizing process, and I envy those 'all at once' divers who jump right in and get it over with. It just seems to me that three and a half hours of ooh ooh ooh is better than 5 seconds of AAAAAAAHHH.

There have been times my family has served me lunch while I was knee deep, and I was eating dinner before my belly button was in. Fun day at the pool, right?
