Last week I took my Dad to watch Bruno outdoor swimming at my gym club.

From our vantage point of two sun loungers we could see the whole pool- Bruno the only person in it.

An encouraging audience, Dad rumbled ‘Super’ to every ensuing aquatic turn, before sitting in silent ‘Terminator’ mode, scanning the cut and jib of the environment.

Having done so he offered this, his one and only observational contribution.

Dad: You see that long pole resting underneath the lifeguard’s chair?

Me: Yes.

Dad (chuckling; making jabbing motions): When people are struggling in the water and coming up for air, that’s for poking them back down again.
