"I don’t know what I’ll do next as I honestly have no useful life skills whatsoever."
Holy crap, that has to be the most untrue statement here !!. No Skills ?? It takes way more skills, fortitude and patience than i could ever muster. Or would want to. I have a couple of friends who are officers and I always said that would be the last job i would ever want. "No Skills my ass" I think working in bilges,grinding fiberglass sucks but still better than your job. I am one thankful guy that there are folks like you who no only do that job but actually like what you do !!. "No Skills" yeah right !!. Thank You.
Ty, all kidding aside, that is an amazing story. That guy is only here because she knew exactly what needed to be done! And to get the gift of life once again on his birthday? Talk about meant to be. Stay safe out there buddy!I guess the part I left out was that she saved the guy. Imagine waking up from dying of drowning on a beach in the VI with a topless woman kneeling over you. Even better, it was the guys birthday. For years she got cards from him in his birthday thanking her for saving his life and giving him a new one on his birthday. And to see if she wanted to leave me and come live with him too maybe lol. He had to be picked up by Virgin Islands search and rescue boat and transported to Tortola where they had a big hospital and he spent a whole month there recovering before being able to fly home to the states.
