Last Sunday, at around 3:00 p.m., my buddy Jason and I headed off to the beach. It was swarming. There were countless people there. We had a grueling time making our way through the crowd. Suddenly, we spotted our friend Tim. We walked in his direction, but at the same time, Jack hailed us from the back. We turned around. Jack offered us two beers. When we turned back, Tim was no longer there. We had a good time at the beach that day.
