Guys, I have wanted a pool my WHOLE LIFE. Community pools and apartment complex pools are not the same. You can't skinny dip! You can't crank your tunes and bop all by your self! You can't casually shove the kids in the water and not get the stink eye from a 16 year old lifeguard! You can't have a POOL BOY. Oh. My. God.

Favorite time in a pool stories GO GO GO!! *bouncing with JOY*

ETA: I forgot to mention that I changed my LJ name based on this bit from Patton Oswald. Ahahahahaha.
