On a holiday in France, I was 14, with the whole family lying around on the beach, I went swimming and drifted out really quickly. I was actually
scared for my life. However somehow I figured that if it is the waves carrying me, I could actually swim underwater back to the shore. And that is
exactly what I did. Dived down, swam as far as possible, came up, got some air etc, eventually I was back and had a go at all of my family for not
keeping an eye out. I don't even think they quite grasped the seriousness of this episode, they didn't behave as if I had just heroically cheated
Worst thing is that my idiot brother in law, told the same story as if it happened to him later to my brother, who knew it was my experience [BIL does
that a lot].
It seems that nobody thinks it was a big deal or I made it up, but it was literally a life and death situation and I was incredibly proud of my idea
to swim underneath or I would have drowned, I was quite far out already.
