15 minutes into my 30 minute rotation, my mind was not functioning at 100%. Surely, you must be worried, "I cannot believe the lifeguard was not paying attention to the kids in the pool." First of all, these were swim team kids. They all swam better than me. Second, they were not even in the damn pool. They all stood around twiddling their thumbs while their coaches tried to sort out heats. I just had to sit in the stand to make sure no one fell in. Finally, no one drowned that day so it does not really matter (but if any of my managers are reading this, I diligently paid attention).
