Poolside Stampede

Cray-Cray and I went swimming today. You know, it was an absolutely gorgeous day, the sun was shining bright, and it just seemed like a good idea to go for a little swim.

I have work later so I was looking for a nice way to relax before the hustle and bustle of the restaurant tonight.

We changed into our swimsuits and headed for the pool. At first we see this guy pruning the bushes around the pool but we didn't think much of it. We did feel bad about swimming all up in his face though.

"Look at us swimming in the refreshing pool while you are doing hard labor and sweating bullets!!! Whooooo!!! Swim party!! Everyone is invited except the guy cutting bushes!!!" Swimming around almost felt like mocking him, you know?

After getting over that guilt, we started to enjoy ourselves. We swam around talking about things going on amongst our friends, how we miss people, funny things that have happened to us, etc.

Then...all of a sudden...they came.

We didn't even have time to react. We didn't even have a chance. They came so fast, neither of us could have done anything. *shivers* It...was so...frightening.

It was like a stampede or a surprise attack in the night. Except it was broad daylight...

I don't remember how many there were. Maybe four or five? But before we knew it, we were surrounded by them.

LEAF. BLOWERS.


How could we have predicted this?!

There we were, having this deep conversation when BAM! these men come out from bushes, from behind the fence, out of the windows, and one guy even slithered out from under a car!!

We tried to continue our conversation thinking they were safely away that we didn't have to scream over that loud, roaring sound they make. We even were naive enough to think we were safe in the confines of the gate that surrounds the pool. We were so very wrong.

All of a sudden, one came in....like a loose wild boar. He started blowing pedals, leaves, and what not away and made his way around the pool.

It went something like,
"RAAAAAWWWWWWRRRRRRRRR!"

Our conversation turned to half screaming, half laughing because of the entire situation. I mean, these men were everywhere.

My conversation with Cray-Cray went something like:

"YES, SO I'M JUST WORRIED ABOUT SO-AND-SO BECAUSE OF THIS-AND-THAT!!!!!!!"

"ME TOO!!!!"

and:

"I'M JUST SO HAPPY ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I KNOW, SO AM I!!!! SO MANY GREAT THINGS HAVE HAPPENED IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS!!!!!!!!"

It was ridiculous.

I swear those men blew our entire parking lot away. I'm still looking for my car.


We even had them use the leaf blowers to whisk us back to the apartment and dry our hair!!

Good times...
