This is my take on the first Prompt via The Momhood’s Prompt Stomp Titled ONE.
The direction I chose to take this in is: the One and only time I’ll ever do this…..my participation in our islands version of the New Years Day Polar Plunge. Those who know me know how much I despise being cold. 2012 was to be my last year in my forties. So, I decided I wanted to start the year off with a bang. Naturally, that meant stepping out of my warm comfort zone and signing up to do the second annual Chincoteague Island New Years Day Pony Plunge.
The day was cold. Temps were in the 40’s with a whipping wind. At least we had blue skies and sunshine. Water temp was 40 (Could of been worse!). Those of us crazy enough to do it stood on the shoreline and waited for the signal…and in we went! Cold wasn’t the word for it…more like freaking cold! It was worse once you got out because of the wind…but I did it!!!!! I’m asked every year if I’ll join in again and my response is always the same, “I proved to myself I could do it, once was enough!”
The chills set in about 15 minutes later…hubby took me for a mocha!!!
