I’ve really had it with the torture session known locally as children’s swimming lesson. A sadistic mommy sits by the pool stone-faced as a toddler screams, “Mommy! Please! Mommy! Help!” for 40 minutes. We are landlocked for hundreds of miles so it’s not like these children will ever swim. But the poor kids and the innocent strangers who come to the pool to swim and have a relaxing time are forced to suffer through hours of this torture.
