At that moment, the chicken side of me won, and I began to scream and splash about, and in general, pitch a panic! Jody came up from snorkeling alarmed by my screaming and assumed the worse - SHARK! He scrambled towards me. I was attempting to get up the boat ladder, but my legs wouldn't make it happen. I was paralyzed by fear! The fish, combined with my own screaming, had convinced me I was soon to die!
