Today's guest is Saskia Kirby of the Kirby Swim School. Kirby Swim - Passionate about swimming!

Saskia and her husband, Bill Kirby, run several swim schools in Australia. Saskia and I have been Facebook friends for several years now but have never met before. With the time difference earlier today this was me, early in the morning, and Saskia, later on in her evening, having our first live conversation, ever.

I keep laughing when I watch it, so I haven't made it all the way through, yet, and wanted to post it for Australia's morning coffee time. This is live, unscripted, and it made me laugh, a lot. I don't seem to know anything about the world, swimming, or the Olympics. Don't ask me, I have no idea what happened. But it's super funny to watch me falter, repeatedly. I look forward to doing this more frequently. We all need a little Saskia in our lives. Much love to Saskia and her family. Thanks for mugging it up with me this morning.
