My height. Well I am not that really small, but there are a lot of advantages for like having a height of 6 feet, and people would agree with me on this one. Well 5’7” is not that bad. Okay okay, 5’6.5”. Psssh.
I once tried to save a drowning friend - and almost got drowned myself.
Swimming with an inflatable plastic gallon, I tried to save him by bringing another plastic gallon near him, but instead of clinging to the gallon, he grabbed by head and made me his inflatable life vest by plunging me down the water so he can float.
LESSON LEARNED: Never save someone drowning if you aren’t trained enough. A drowning person will hold onto anything it can hold on to for dear life - even you!
And oh, learning how to swim is a great advantage. I registered for Red Cross training so I can save drowning people properly.
