SMH and Swimming
I was watching water polo during the olympics and was too lazy to write this then buy I got the idea that rans and holtzy absolutely make the boys play water polo on the really hot days when they have literally Nothing To Do
And then I was struck with a Thought: one of the guys on the team 100% does not know how to swim. So I began thinking who might this boy be who can glide across frozen water but cannot survive in it’s liquid form??
Is it Bitty? No, he grew up in the south where the heat is brutal and a nice cold pool is all thay keeps you from heat stroke. Johnson? The concept of whether or not he can swim is irrelevant. Dex? He works on a lobster boat and though life vests are a thing they just get in the way so lets just all be swimmers there.
And then I realized.
Derek Malik Nurse, the rich boy from NYC. City public pools are disgusting, that boy would not go near one because he is too High Class for that. bittyinthehaus pointed out to me that he could go to a private club so that’s a thing but no no he went to a fancy boarding school and then became a poetry nerd. Chlorine pools are not his Aesthetic and why would he want to soak it other people’s dirty water? Private pool or not he knows how many children pee in there or blow snot or lose bandaids.
So he never learned to swim
And I’m not saying that there’s a whole scenario waiting to happen with Dex teaching his fellow d-man how to swim or anything, but guys, there kinda is.
