Real Lies

And you thought your day at work was bad!

When her partner calls her early Saturday morning to report a body in La Jolla Cove, rescue diver Kristin CastaƱo's only worry is losing sleep. Once she's in the water all that changes.

I’m not even sure where to start. I’m good at my job. Real good. It’s reports I can’t handle. Charlay usually does our reports, but she’s on vacation, so I get the honor of reporting the body.

Or lack of body.

But I’ve no clue where to begin.

Saturday morning, I woke up bleary-eyed to the phone ringing like a fire alarm during mass. Groggy, I hit the speaker phone button. “’Sup?”

“We’ve got a body at La Jolla cove,” Charlay said in the no-nonsense tone of a woman who wakes at four every morning for a brisk five-mile run. “Bring your gear.”

Too many years of Catholic school had stripped me of the ability to swear, but I tried. “Pink fluffy elephants!”

I hung up, rolled off of my mattress, skimmed out of my black tank and panties, and pulled on my musty black swimsuit. Black is my color of choice for everything; it’s hard to stain. I scraped my hair back into a tight ponytail and pulled my beat up sweats on. They still smelled like smoke from the bonfire two weekends ago.

At some point I really needed to wash my clothes.
