One my best experiences happened one amazing summer time I spent as a lifeguard. There was a crew of 8 of us working full time in shifts through that whole summer… We saved a few lives, plus had a lot of wonderful times, but it wasn’t all fun plus games, of course. We were a group of youngsters so there were a great deal of fun plus games involved. One character I remember vividly from that time was a beach bum named Sammy.
Sammy used to be a lifeguard plus a surfer 30 years ago, but now he just hung around, drank beer, plus mooched off the A/C in the lifeguard shack whenever he could. We consistently gave him a break, because he used to be one of us, plus that air conditioned shack was honestly the single place within miles to cool off. One day I remember coming to work, hung over, to find that the A/C unit would not crank up. At 7am it was already 90 degrees plus climbing, plus in my condition, I needed a freezing air vent close to the face. I went outside plus found Sammy sleeping in the sand, plus asked if he could possibly fix the a/c.
Minutes later, he was a sipping a beer plus digging through the inner parts of the a/c. I don’t understand what he did, however that a/c fired right up for him, at which point he finished his drink plus fell asleep on the sand.
