When I was young, I oftentimes imagined I could breathe underwater. I would be in my bath, face down, and think about how cool it would be if I could stay like that.

Of course, I couldn’t, but it didn’t keep me from imagining it. (In fact, it spurred me on to become SCUBA certified!)

So my Theoretical Thursday is this:

If you could breathe underwater (in fresh water OR salt water, but only under healthy and safe conditions), would you?? CATCH: You would have to have VISIBLE gills on the sides of your neck for the rest of your life.
