I am one of those unfortunate people who has many… many… bad habits. A lot of which are in swimming. For example, my entire breaststroke… stroke is a bit of a joke.
WHO’S THE POET THAT DIDN’T KNOW IT? YES. THAT’S RIGHT. ME.
But I do have a valid reason why my stroke is a bit rubbish. When I was born, I had something weird with my foot, so I had to have an operation when I was 4 months to have it straightened out, so now my left leg is weaker than my right leg, and the foot is also about half a size smaller. Oh, and I also have a massive L shaped scar on my ankle which I used to think was something that made me special because I didn’t know what is was. Then I learnt about science and have been disappointed ever since. And that is the reason why I can’t swim breaststroke.
My other bad habit is that I sometimes grind my teeth, and I think I do it most when I’m asleep… so I don’t actually know that I’m doing it. I sometimes do it when I’m awake, but that’s usually when I’m stressed, nervous, or in deep thought. I don’t know why or how this bad habit came about… it’s just one of those things that’s always been.
But yeah. I can’t really think of anymore bad habits that I have. Or maybe I’m just too good. Or maybe I’m hiding them all from you because I want you to love me. I’m not weird, trust me.
