Poo in the Pool

This afternoon, I decided to take my kids swimming to our local pool. We became summer members and the pool is less than a 1/2 mile from my house. I figured out last year that we had to go at least 10 times make it worth the expense of the summer membership and this year, I think it is a little less since we get a discount when we play tennis there. Anyway, after being there an hour, I wanted to go home but my kids wanted to stay. Just as I was having this conversation with them, the whistle blew and they made everyone get out. There was a lot of confusion but it was finally revealed that someone had gone poo in the water and they had to close down the pool to clean it. Oddly enough, the poo was in the deep part, which means it wasn't a leaky swim diaper. It had to be a person old enough to swim in the 7 feet deep part. Anyway, never in my life have I been so happy to that someone had gone poo in the pool! No more arguing with my kids. We all agreed it was best to just pack up and leave.

Janice, you made me laugh! What a fine attitude you have to always be looking on the bright side.. I'd say it is a good time to go home when there is poo in the pool. :)

LOL! It sounds like you got a break from some heavy negotiating.
