Falls In A Pool

You’ve perhaps heard of Stands With a Fist, or Dances With Wolves? Characters played by Mary McDonell, and Kevin Costner, respectively.

Well, my Indian name is Falls In a Pool.

Truthfully, I didn’t so much fall as I dove, but I like the way “Falls In a Pool” just tickles my ears. Say it with me: “Falls In a Pool.”

I guess I must have harbored some latent anger against that poor pool, because it is the first time I’ve so viciously, savagely attacked…

The bottom of one…

With my face.

You’ll be happy to know that the pool is no worse for the wear, but I look like:

I’m fairly certain the pool hasn’t had either a lingering headache, or recurrent bloody noses, since the incident.

I’m just glad it isn’t pressing charges.

(For the record, I closed my eyes underwater).

Have you ever done anything stupid in a pool?

  • Probably, but I don’t remember. I do plenty of stupid stuff though.

    • Me, too, Larry. Me, too. 🙂

  • I’m just glad it was your nose and not your neck! But to answer your question, most of my stupid pool incidents involve massive sunburn.

    • Me, too, Michelle. My poor wife--she was so scared!

      I hear you on the sunburns--had many as a kid. I live in Arizona, and unfortunately, I have two hues:

      Plaster white, and lobster red.

      I stay out of the sun.
