When you jump into a pool of water (not dive, where your hands are required, but like a good old cannon ball) do you plug your nose?

I do. Not because I never learned how to blow air out my nose. I did, and can. I just sort of like to plug my nose. It is habit. But every single time I do, Ben (who is a very experienced waterman type) goes into a fit of giggles.

Am I the only water loving adult who does this?

  1. NO! I do it all the time! If I don't then, like a child, I get water all up my nose and the fun is OVER! ha. You're not alone with the nose plug ;)

  4. Ha! That is an awesome picture! I don't think I plug my nose. I need both to hold my legs!

  6. YES. It's my secret shame. I'm a pretty strong swimmer, so it's even worse. But when I don't plug, I get a rush of water up my nose, unless I try a super-dramatic blow-out maneuver as soon as I hit the water...and let's just face it, that's too much of an effort. :)

  7. water goes up your nose if you just jump in? I don't hold mine or blow air. Now, if I do a flip turn I feel as if someone put a firehose up my nose.

  8. I no longer jump in a pool... I glide into it... LOL BUT, in my cannonball days, YES... I plugged my nose to keep the water rush out.

  10. I do it, religiously. You can't blow water out your knows with sufficient velocity to prevent it from getting all up in there mid-cannonball.

  11. Plug it! I'm so glad you posted this. I will no longer feel sheepish.

    ps...I have the same polka dot bikini as you. I LOVE THE BOTTOMS! Most flattering cut ever.
