Just jump in

I went to the beach yesterday. Yes, I know I shouldn't rub in the fact that I am currently on vacation. Well, maybe I will a bit:

Yes, it was indeed a nice day.

So, I was at the beach, and the water was unnaturally murky. My friend got stung by a jellyfish and there were horseshoe crabs all around. The likelihood of getting stung was pretty high. I had no idea what was out there. Yet I've been trying to take more risks lately. Suddenly I was in somewhat of a moral dilemma.

I took a deep breath, and decided to take the plunge. I felt so empowered, so free....and then I got stung by a jellyfish.
