Lifesaving

The lifeguards have to carry their own stuff down to the beach each morning. And they train. I assume it’s the lifeguards who train, running and swimming along the beach each day. They police forbidden activity, perform basic first aid, and rescue errant swimmers. It’s a lot of responsibility. I, once passed the exam for lifeguard in New York City. Too many applicants, not enough positions. I was offered a job on the waterfront in a summer camp. I wonder why I turned it down?
