    Why I Haven't Touched It Since

    When I was little I used to love to go swimming in the waves. I'd fearlessly tread out as far as my mom would let me and Bon up and down with the waves. I should have been more careful. But really so should my parents. I had no way of knowing what a rip tide was, and no one told...

    Nobody likes going to the beach with me because I'm way out in the waves the entire time. No sun tanning. No sand castles. Just cold, deep, wonderful ocean.
