The Day that I almost Drowned
Back when I was 8, I was in the pool at Olympic. I was having so much fun going off of the large slide there. My routine was to climb up the ladder, jump into the tub at the top, and slide down as fast as I could. Soon I decided that I shouldn't just sit down, I should lay on my back down the slide! At that time, I was so stupid that I didn't even take a break from going down the slide that on about the 100th time that I slid down, I had the scariest moment of my life! I had been perfectly fine until that last time that made me never want to go off there again! This is what had happened. I was going down the slide at a remarkable speed, with my head and back on the bottom of the slide. I had no idea when I was going to go splash, because I didn't see anything other than the ceiling. Suddenly, it happened. I felt my feet hit the water in a millisecond, and didn't get a chance to take a breath. Before I knew it, I was under water fully, with no sense of direction of which way was up! I began to take a chance. I swam with all my might towards the way that I thought was up. Wham! I hit the floor of the pool, and the bubbles from my mouth burst out. My eyes streamed open and I saw light. I panicked, (Even though I already had!). It felt like hours before I finally busted out of the water. My lungs gasped for air, and the lifeguards heaved me out of the water. I said,"I, am never, doing, that, again!"
-Water feels cool.
-Sways when you touch it
-Slippery on the inside of the cup
-Smells like there is nothing there
-Almost like cardboard
-Smells like a chemical that doesn't smell at all.
-When you have a birds eye view it looks like the ground/table is closer than it actually is.
-When you look through the side of the cup it is blurry.
-Ocean sound echoing through the cup
-When pouring the cup, it was bubbling and swirling around
