Once A Lifeguard, Always A Lifeguard. Saved A Life Yesterday!

Saved a life yesterday :)

I was relaxing at the apartment complex's pool yesterday evening when I saw something small swimming across the water. I got up and walked to the edge of the pool and noticed it was a chipmunk. I'm not sure how it got in the pool, but with no easy way out it surely would've drowned. With no basket nearby to fish it out I simply reached after it, gently grabbed it around the waist, and set it on the pool deck. The little thing was soaked, but scurried off away from the pool.

I was a lifeguard for quite a few years in high school and college, and now I can add 'chipmunk' to my list of beings I've pulled out of the water :)
