Swimming widows

Just off to Myrtleville / the pool / the lake for a quick dip?  Again? Twice a day?  For how long?  Swimming’s just great.  For swimmers.

As lots of us chatted happily last Friday night about how wonderful is the world of swimming and how everyone should be in it, there was one little grouping who weren’t quite as effusive in their praise of the water.  Swimming widows are the partners and spouses who don’t swim, don’t really want to hear about it and are stuck with life with an addict – the kind who thinks swimmy stuff is just the best thing ever.

Welcome to the world of the swimming widow.

The four faces of the swimming widow - Anger, Abandonment, Sadness & Frustration.

There are, of course, swimming widowers as well, but I don’t have any pictures of them.
