Pool first aid

I helped a boy at a public swimming pool yesterday.

After my swimming lesson, I like floating down an area called the lazy river. While I was there, I noticed some kids playing with water guns.

One boy got hit just under his right eye. He bled and he started to cry. That is where I stepped in.

There is only one simple end to the story, but papa and I tell it differently.

Papa’s version has me talking like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Me: Come with me if you want to live!

Boy: What?

Me: Get to the choppa!

Boy: What?

[Me grabs boy and whisks him to safety.]

My version is simpler.

I brought the boy over to the first aid station and explained what happened to the lifeguard on duty. Then I went on my merry way.

I prefer my version. I don’t have to be all muscle-y and speak with a funny accent.
