As a coach, people oftentimes see me as a boring character. I’m not sure if that’s due to the movies or the stuff they see online but they automatically assume that I wake up every morning, go to the training area, go home and sleep.
Fortunately, I still have a life and I love it.
Contrary to what people believe, I actually live a pretty exciting life. I’ve made a number of “teenage decisions” that were both dangerous and exciting. I’ve also experienced a number of moments where I could actually say “I will never forget this”.
I guess that’s why I am the perfect swim coach for growing teens. I understand them. I know what they are going through. I can connect to them.
For example, there was a troubled kid I got to talk to about certain problems in his life. He was going to the prom with a pretty popular girl and he didn’t know what to do to “impress” her. I put emphasis on impress because the kid really thought he had to go and pull the moon for her.
That was then I relayed to him my first limo experience. It was also prom when I got to ride my first limo. I guess it was rented from http://perthlimoexperience.com.au/ but I wasn’t sure. I was very excited as it was literally my first time riding a luxury car. In my mind, I was imagining how much fun me and my friends were going to have in the limo.
Sadly, my partner said as soon as I rode the limo that we were the only ones that will ride the limo. He said he can’t afford to have my friends over because they might damage the limo and that would mean he would pay more. It was the worst feeling in the world. That was the longest 10-minute drive of my life. I went home in my friend’s car and we had a lot of fun.
I guess what I was saying was that it doesn’t matter if you take her in a limo or a trike. Just as long as the lady gets to be happy. That will definitely make her day.
