Here’s another entry in my series of pictures from The Columbus Dispatch. This photo appeared in the June 12 issue.
However, this one is ass backwards.

I can see it now:
Swimmer: Help, help! I’m drowning!
Lifeguard: I’ll save you!
Lifeguard: Wait just a second. I cannot swim with my flip-flops on.
Lifeguard: I’m taking them off now.
Sinker: I can’t keep my head . . .
Lifeguard: Here I come!
Of all the places where bare feet are normal, where they are encouraged, even here the mania has taken hold and somehow the lifeguard has gotten it in her head that she cannot get from the locker room to the lifeguard chair without “protection.”
It really makes you wonder sometimes.
