I was a feral aquatic creature

I was a feral aquatic creature for an hour when I was a child. We’d had a flood; captivated by the look of a flooded woods near my house, tried to explore it, fell in water–was astonished that it was not cold. Immersed, I began to swim around in my clothes. I went into a weird primeval state, a human otter, in the moment, floating in my clothes, swimming up to stare at other animals up close…at least an hour.
