"...and if we should get separated, cry out like a wounded seagull until we can find you. and stay away from the water's edge! a killer whale might mistake you for a tasty baby seal. if that should happen, throw this doll as a distraction while you scramble to safety. oh, and swim parallel to shore in case of a rip tide!"
