Hi! It’s summer! Hop in the pool. Go on, you’ve got time. Get comfortable, hop in the pool. Here’s a mojito. How’s that for a pool drink? I knew you’d like it. Relax, I’ve got you a raft. You don’t know how to swim? Just hang out in the shallow end. There’s kids, but they’ll move. Act like an adult. Oh, and no running when you get out.
