Swimming and swimmers. That’s what I’m taking from this prompt. While it’s warmer than usual up here in Illinois, it’ll be quite awhile till the pools and beaches open. Still lest we forget in the southern hemisphere it’s summer and ’round the equator and below people do need to cool off with a swim.
