I had this conversation with my husband yesterday:
Tanya: I can’t find diving rings anywhere. I checked Kaboodles, SwimCo, The Dive Shop. Apparently Toys R Us carries them in the summer, but the kids refuse to go back to the pool unless they have something to dive for.
Min: Why don’t you take a rock?
Tanya: [Long pause] I didn’t think of that.
I needed something heavy that would sink in water, and “rock” didn’t occur to me. Obviously, I’ve lived in Kitsilano for far too long. Next thing you know, I’ll be wearing a headband and carrying my yoga mat like a security blanket.
