How peculiar.

It's fairly clear, that you've never watched Baywatch before.

Because a half way intelligent person in general and a educated lifesaver in particular will never just jump mindlessly into the water to follow someone in trouble.
A probably didn't know whether the rope was long enough but gave it a try. However, it was good thinking.

Living in Greece I guess one is more alert to tourists struggling in the sea and the stuff in the trunk is also different from what we carry in it.

Or A just fishes for new lovers in the sea on regular basis. :D

The thing with baywatch is the camera never really focuses on the bits one could learn from. :rolleyes: Learn to save lives I mean.

Apparently ( I was told afterwards), many beaches on the island have dangerous undercurrents and lots of cars have cables / ropes in the boot precisely for this reason. All the locals know about it, of course, but there is no sign to warn tourists.

A very positive outcome of this new formula is that my daughter is coming back to Geneva for the Gay Pride early September and, whereas in the past I was an unwanted guest on the count that: 1. It normally clashes with one of my yodel concerts and therefore there is nothing more "uncool" (I quote) than a dad in a friggin' yodeler's outfit mixing in with all the rainbow crowd. 2. "Dad, you're so old fashion, you wouldn't understand the vibe!" ... suddenly it's: "Dad, we defo should do the March together, I don't mind even if you wear your traditional yodeler's outfit". There was a yearning within me to hear this, a strange new path in life made it happen.

And X is out of the equation. Any Z out there?:p
