The pool

I love to lie on a raft with a book. This is the first time I’ve ever had a pool, and I’m enjoying it every chance I get.

I was puzzling over why my raft always goes to the shallow end. I have to shove myself back toward the deep end, but it just goes right back.

This is bad, because the shallow end is shady. I don’t understand wanting to be in the shade.

I finally figured out why it does this.

The pool is tipped.

    Convection currents perhaps? or the pool pump?

    Are you rejecting my tipping theory? Would you have gone for it if it were the deep end I floated toward?

    I buy into the whole tipped pool theory, smack. My cousin’s sister’s brother once had to relocate his diving board to the other side of the pool because it had tipped a mere tenth of a degree. That’s no laughing matter.

    my husband’s wife totally thought you were serious, until she re-read it.

    your cousin’s sister’s brother? i love it.
