Teaching a Nigerian Princess how to swim

I got this very exciting email this morning.  I take it from the the proper use of English that it's a 16 yr old Nigerian Princess I could be teaching how to swim!  Here's the email:

Thank you.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to do any private coaching.  I'll have to pass.  Would have been fun though :)

This morning I got up super eager to swim.  Especially since I passed up my long swim on Saturday because I woke up with a severe migraine headache.  This morning's swim was much needed!

My Mom called me last night with a warning from a dream she had.  She dreamt that I was swimming the channel and was doing fine with the cold and with the distance.  However the waves were building and at one point I got too close to the boat and accidentally touched it and got DQd.  She said to be careful no to fulfill that nightmare.
