Yes, Peter, I like that. I linked to Harrison in my post (that's the one I said was creative). But Harrison says that's ”I see a drowning man, but I can’t swim, so he will have to drown.” No reason, of course, that it couldn't also stand for: "I'm drowning. Don't talk to me." or "I'm drowning, I can't talk now." or "I'm drowning help me!" Though I rarely find that the last one gets me help!
