swimmin like an alli-gator
So I was swimming laps yesterday afternoon and I was using long flippers whilst keeping my arms at my sides.

I was the only one in the pool and it was dead quiet except for watery sounds...there was a mist that came off the skylight and if you looked, all you saw was gray sky and the naked limbs of trees.
