In the shit swimmers don’t say they forgot:
Thanks mom for being so happy to drive me to practice at 4:30 AM
Thanks mom for driving across town/state/region/country to see me swim
Thanks mom for spending every last dime you have on replacement goggles for me (500 pairs)
Thanks mom for spending an entire day looking at hairy ass cracks to watch me swim a 29 second race.
What else did they miss? (Although, very funny despite the lack of missed gratitude to dear ole mom, well done!)
