2 a.m. Delirium

This story has come up twice in the past week. Both times, it was around 2 a.m.

When I was 5 or 6 years old, I spent the week with my friend and her cousin. She had a pool. VERY EXCITING. However, when it was time to use the bathroom, I did NOT want to leave the pool, dry off, freeze inside because of the A/C blasting, put my wet swimsuit back on, and then have to get used to the cold water again.

I knew that it was ok to pee in the pool, everyone did it. So I decided then that it must be ok to poop in the pool. I slid my bottoms to the side (no, I didn't even take them off), dropped a couple of bombs, then swam like hell to the other side.

My friend noticed it right away, and she blamed her cousin who was two years younger than us. Shocked, I just pointed in agreement and acted all disgusted too.

That night, I thought, note to self:
It is NOT ok to poop in the pool.

    "Welcome to our ool"
    you'll notice we don't have a P in the pool let's keep it that way.

    sign at your cousins should have said

    "Welcome to our L"
    you'll notice we don't have any poo in our pool so let's keep it that way.
