But I do it. I got there this morning and there are two women in the pool. I prefer an outside lane so I head to the side. As I start swimming I notice a hose but there is often a hose in the pool as the custodian cleans in the early morning. He puts the hose across (into) the pool to clean the deck. But there was no custodian anywhere and the hose was in the pool. No biggie right? WRONG! I swim by it and it is moving. Well of course it is I am swimming so strongly that I am moving it, right? Well probably wrong again but I get to the end and turn around because when you are in a pool that is what you do. I am coming back by and the hose is rising up at me. I kind of dodge it and go around it and it hits me.
IT GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS! Why would it give you goosebumps AJH you may be thinking? Well, I will tell you.
I am sorry but a moving hose in water reminds me too much of something else. Ridiculous maybe but it does. So I moved to the next lane and then moved over yet another lane.
And I still kept one eye on that hose the rest of my swimming time even though I was not near it.
