Pool Closed

*There is one topic I have considered pretty much off limits in blogging.  Today I break that rule.

Fitting for July 1st, the sun came out in Seattle today.  And since it broke 65 obviously we had to play in the kiddie pool in the backyard.  While I did put both of my children in swimsuits today, I did not bother to put a swim diaper on the small child because A. they are expensive and B. I thought it was totally safe.

Upon getting the pool filled Harmon immediately asked for cups to dump water.  I naturally complied, and when I got into the pool the kids gave me a bath.  Water is poured all over my head, face, and body.  After a few minutes I think I smell something bad smelling.  I don’t smell it again and forget about it.  Two minutes later I smell it again and realize it is coming from someone very close to me.  At this point I weep openly and declare the pool closed.

    This reminds me of a story…a fictional story, but a legend nonetheless….
