Quickie 30 second video of Nick doing a handstand in the pool, showing off for the camera and a group of kids. *Disregard the last 15 seconds of the video, I uploaded the unedited version by accident. So, I guess that makes this a quickie 19 second video. Even better!
Day 3 of swimming therapy for Nick and he’s loving it. His mood is soaring, his mobility is increasing, and his pain is lessoning. Little by little, life is getting better.
He made friends with a group of 8 and 9 year old boys in the pool today. One hyper-inquisitive boy introduced himself as Lars. I overheard Nick ask him, “Lars, like Lars Ulrich? He’s the drummer of Metallica.” The boys, for once, were actually silent. “Have you guys ever heard of Metallica?”
I’m not sure what made me laugh more, the situation, or the way Nick described it afterward. He said, “Well, since they were asking me 7,000 fucking questions, I figured I could ask them one.”
And you stumped them, sweetheart! Next up: Nick Fener competes on the gameshow Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader!
