Sunglasses Don’t Float: Revisited #SOL19 Day 25/31

I am once again participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge for the month of March.  This is the fourth year I have joined the community of writers over at Two Writing Teachers in taking up this challenge of writing for 31 consecutive days.  I know it will be hard work but the growth will be immeasurable. Follow along!

Sunglasses Don’t Float: Revisited

My sunglasses were lost last summer. Gone to the bottom of the lake after falling off the paddle boat.  Lost forever. Or so I thought… (Read part 1 here)

And there I was once again finishing up the raking of the lake bottom thinking about my glasses. I was shin deep in the muck pulling back the leaves and making little piles to pick up later. I had pretty much told myself I’d never find my glasses, almost laughing out loud at the absurdity of the idea of ever finding them. Yet, I told myself one more dip in the water to pull back the muck. I was after all in the right spot where I fell. I drew the rake through the brown liquid and across the sandy bottom. Looking down I saw them, shining brown, yet dirty.

I screeched “My glasses! I found my glasses!” Yes indeed. There they were, and found just as I was about to give up. Sitting right where they fell off one year ago. Unbelievable!

Now I wonder how I’ll get that swampy smell out!
