What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I saved someone from drowning. There were four of us on a tiny two-person sailboat and no life vests. We were in college and kind of stupid. We were in the middle of the lake, and my girlfriend’s boyfriend says he can’t swim. And then the boat goes down, and I see him bobbing in the water, and I grabbed him and pulled him to shore.
