This is our pool.....looks harmless,doesn't it? and yet, Sunday at our cookout, I believe the pool tried to kill me,LOL.
perhaps my first mistake was saying 'yes,let's!' when someone said 'let's make a whirlpool.'.....so, there I was along with my son, daughter, and my husband's nephew, and we're all walking around the pool in a circle as fast as we can, to get the whirlpool started.....
then we all grabbed floats, so we could float around in the whirlpool, I think most of y'all have probably done this (although possibly not when you're almost 50,lol)
we're floating around the pool in our 'whirlpool', and I'm floating behind my daughter as we head around toward the side of the pool that is next to the fence....as she's heading around, she thinks she's about to hit the fence, so she sticks her legs out to keep from smashing into the fence.
I,of course, slam right into the back of her, and the next thing I know, I'm falling over the side of the pool along with gallons of water, and Blam! hit the ground.
at this point, I am laughing so hard that I can hardly breathe, let alone speak......so when everyone starts calling out 'are you all right?" because I'm on the side of the pool where they can't see me, I am choking so hard with laughter that it takes me several minutes to gasp out 'I'm fine, I'm fine, I just can't stop laughing!"
my husband had been filming with the camera before the pool episode occurred, and sadly, had just turned the camera off , or otherwise, I'm pretty sure we'd have had a shot at the prize money on America's Funniest Home videos :)
and how was Your weekend? :)
