I once caused a food fight by throwing a banana at someone. I was in eighth grade, and I got put in lunchroom isolation for, like, six months.

I once crashed a Hobie Cat into a Whaler. It wasn’t my fault — somebody rigged my sail wrong. Possibly I should have checked their rigging work, but I expected them to know how.

When I was a teenager I snuck out of the house to hang out with friends past curfew. The police caught us, and they had to call my parents to come bail me out.

I can’t say I was in trouble, but I once rescued a coworker with a broken wrist, I’ve been a lifeguard for years, but the only person I ever saved was a fellow lifeguard.
