 Swimming the English Channel,
struggling to make it to Calais,
I swam into Laura halfway across.
My body oiled for warmth, black rubber cap on my head, eyes hidden behind goggles, I was exhausted, ready to drown, when I saw her coming toward me, bobbing up and down between waves, effortlessly doing a breaststroke, heading for Dover.
Treading water I asked in French if she spoke English, and she said, "Yes, I'm an American.
" I said, "Hey, me too," then asked her out for coffee.
