Douglas refers to the incident at the Y.M.C.A. swimming pool where he almost drowned

as a "misadventure." The author was about ten or eleven years old at the time and had

barely begun to learn swimming, primarily by aping others. As he was thrown suddenly

into the water by someone and he couldn't swim, he started drowning. The struggle to

come to surface and to avoid getting drowned left him with a deep fear of water which

deprived him from enjoying water-related activities for many year•
