The Pool Brings Out The Child In Us All

Have you ever noticed that when you go to the pool with friends, you act like a little kid?
Playing Colors and Marco Polo,
going in the baby pool even though little kids pee in it constantly,
floating on plastic devices,
getting excited to jump into the deep end with your friends,
trying to scare your friends by being shark-like,
doing different complex jumps into the water...
Yet you are never ashamed, because the pool is where you just let go.
Have you ever noticed that if you have the mentality of a young adult, you have a boring time?
If you get overly concerned about "Do I look fat?"
"Am I tan enough?"
"Am I composed, yet having fun?"
than you are just boring and bored the whole time, and no one wants to be with you.
I highly suggest throwing away all insecurites when you go to the pool.
You will have so much more fun.

I completely second that with a passion. And i had a joyful time playing colors for the first time with you even though some posers started copying us after we got out of the kiddie pool!

I am almost 22 years old, and I promise you, I don't think I will ever grow out of floating on innertubes, playing colors, marco polo or jumping into the deep end. EVER. I love that you still do these things too...

boring people=bad time at the pool
