That's how we do things around here, in case you hadn't noticed.

Over the holiday weekend - while we were laid up in a lawn chair pondering a way that we could eat sausage without using our hands - Diana Nyad, a 64-year-old swimmer, became the first person in history to swim the 110 miles from Havana to Key West without a shark cage or swim fins. She’d attempted the swim four times previous to this, but was deterred by the typical problems that plague 64-year-olds: shoulder pain and HUNDREDS OF INSANELY PAINFUL BOX JELLYFISH STINGS. However, jellyfish and sharks be damned (Wait, there are sharks too? Fuck that), Diana strapped on her swim cap and bridged the gap that communism closed down so long ago.
So, to celebrate this international paddler and how lazy she’s made us feel, we are taking a dip with these girls by the water.
It’s almost like swimming from Cuba to Florida, except without all the exercise, endurance, training, will power, and heart. Swimsuits, though; they both have swimsuits.
