“That’s not swimming, it’s frolicking.” ~ Nick

    Depends completely on the context, although that Nick is a funny guy…

    I don’t get it.  No, I don’t.

  • Kristina says:

    Okay, okay, clearly the context is necessary in order to prove just how funny this comment was.

    Nick was looking for clipart that depicted a swimmer to use for a display.  He had a whole screen of swimmers and I pointed out one that was of a small child in a pool wearing water wings. 

    “How about that one?” I asked.

    Nick, without pausing and completely serious, responded, “That’s not swimming, it’s frolicking.”

    C’mon people.  FROLICKING.  When was the last time you used the word frolicking in casual conversation?  It was funny, dammit.

  • Ellen says:

    I think maybe this is only funny if you were there.

  • Kristina says:

    Sigh… you’ll have to trust me that it was funny when he said it.

  • Jae says:

    It is very funny.  When Kris told me the story, I thought

    Nick is so cool, everyone should get to know him.

    You people are a little strange.
