$70 Dive To Do The Right Thing

Day Six of the 10-Day Shortform Challenge

Vacationing with my family as a child, swimming alone in a pool, something caught my eye: a fifty-dollar bill.

Collecting the money, I gave it to the hotel staff. Seeking out my parents, I shared what happened.

They beamed. As a parent now, I imagine how they felt decades earlier.

I didn’t look for them to ask — I just did the right thing.
