I laughed out loud - I LOVE it, because I used to skip swimming lessons at school! I was terrified of water, but oh no never thought of being on a sinking ship.

Happy Monday Rosidah!

Clever -- and true. Most sailors in the sailing days could NOT swim -- but because they chose to not 'linger'. They knew there would be no Coast Guard looking for them!

wenn said...

oh dear, i can't swim!

Barbara H. said...

LOL! This is great -- the tilt of the picture does make it look like it is sinking! And when one skips lessons one runs into trouble!

Great work!

Martha said...

Argh that's cute! :-)

Nessa said...

Oh, dear, not a good thing when the boat's going down. Very clever.

That's funny! And exactly how I felt when I had to learn how to swim...drowning would be easier. :0

ROFL - and that was an all too common predicament of many sailors during the 16-1800's!! Great little story :D
