The crew of the Skylark try to use their newly invented space suits, which have never been actually tested in the field DuQuesne reported briefly to the two girls. All three put on space-suits and crowded into the tiny airlock. The lock was pumped down. There was a terrific jar as the two ships of space were brought together and held together. Outer valves opened; residual air screamed out into the interstellar void.
I decided it was time to revisit why I believe we women should wear a swimsuit — with some new and old thoughts. I have a lot of friends who do the latter. They go to the pool with their kids, but they only put their feet in the pool. They sit on the sidelines, too concerned about what they look like and what others will think to embrace the joy of swimming with their kids. Or they go to the beach, but stay under the umbrella instead of running into the ocean.
