Monday morning writing joke: “In the swim of things”

[Editor’s note: this is from the “you can’t make this up” department. Not so much a joke, though certainly a bit of a humorous caper. Who knows, could even be the basis for a story. I don’t know if you would call this a stroke of genius, or simply a breast stroke.] A woman who […]
