As a member of From Left to Write, I received a copy of Neil Swidey’s Trapped Under the Sea for review purposes.
Neil Swidey’s harrowing true story Trapped Under the Sea tells the tale of brave young divers who have been tasked with a potentially deadly journey. They must travel to the end of an oxygen-starved, super long, pitch-black tunnel in order to help fix Boston Harbor’s wastewater treatment plant.
Serious stuff that’s worth reading about.
Here’s some not-so-serious stuff that’s also worth reading about.
Trapped Without Coffee.
I woke up this morning to a coffee pot that was set to brew at 6 a.m., but did absolutely no brewing at all. AT ALL. That means when I stumbled out of bed, bleary eyed and all, I found myself staring at an empty mug for about 30 seconds before I was able to put two and two together: This coffee pot is neither hot, nor filled with the brown caffeinated elixir I crave each morning.
Dagger! I was trapped without coffee.
It seems silly, right? Why is it SUCH a big deal when coffee drinkers run out? I posted on Facebook:
Am I Alone?
Could you give up having coffee every morning?
This post was inspired by Trapped Under the Sea by Neil Swidey. In Boston, five men were sent into a dark, airless, miles-long tunnel below the ocean to do a nearly impossible job that would help clean the once dirtiest harbor in America.
