Aidian MorrowCraven Community CollegeEnglish 111Fall 2014Instructor: Terri Van SicklePoolsOn a hot July summer day when the sweat is dripping off your forehead into your eyes and you just want to slide down an iceberg next to penguins, there is only one thing that could really satisfy someone on a day like this. That one thing is a pool. When the sun is at its hottest point in the middle of the day, and you're outside you can't say that you wouldn't love to jump right into a pool and cool off. The great thing about pools are that they are fun for people of all ages and even animals. My grandma loves going to her pool in her neighborhood more than the kids I believe. As a kid my favorite memories were in out pool with my family and friends, I couldn't imagine my life without it.The great thing about pools, other than how much fun you have in them, is that there are so many different types at different prices. You don't need a in-ground pool to have a good time in a pool. You could get an above ground pool, an inflatable pool, a plastic pool, there are so many different types and styles you could pick from. Say you are on a budget but you really want to have your very own pool. You could go to Walmart, Target, Big lots, or a local pool supply store, and buy a pool from a price range of thirty dollars to seven-hundred dollars. If you have the extra money and space to put in an in-ground pool then by all means make a pool of your dreams and enhance your house value by a lot! If you have a family or to start to make a family then a pool is a great bonding tool and activity, because you can enjoy time with one another and play tons of games.There is an unlimited amount of games you could play in a pool. I use to play this game with my family and friends in the pool called vortex. This game is where everyone in the pool runs in the same direction in a circle for about ten minutes. At the end of ten minutes the pool (if you had enough people) should have started going in a circle with you sucking you towards the middle kind of like a vortex. We many played with game at night because everyone would grab a glow stick and once the water was flowing in its vortex form everyone lets go of their glow stick and the glow stick flows with the water making a rainbow of colors. It looked amazing and was one of the funniest things I've ever done. That was just one game we would play in the pool, There are tons other like, water basketball which is pretty much the same concept of basketball except you bring the net close to the pool and you play in the pool. It was also fun to pull our trampoline close to the pool and jump off the trampoline into the pull making a huge splash and making people outside...
