Having a nice pool at the apartment complex is a great benefit . The pool is is long and narrow, perfect for doing laps and getting exercise. On days when the sun is out in the morning, we frequently head down for a swim. Most days we are the only ones using it.
The shallow (narrow) end is about 3 1/2 feet deep until just past the iron bridge. Then it drops off to about 5 feet at the wider end, where the slide is.
One Saturday we headed down to the pool for a swim. The pool is right next to the house where the landlord (Phons) lives. We get in and start swimming our laps. Phons' teenage son and a friend were sitting at an outside table working on their computers, minding their own business. Then, from around the corner, Phons comes out in his boxer underwear and says "Hey, how's it going?!" He stretched his arms out and twirled around stating "How do you like my suit?" Phons is short, squatty and has a bit of a belly - not quite the physique of a swimsuit model found in the magazines. I guess he didn't want us to feel "underdressed," so he pared down to what he felt was the equivalent of a swim suit - very accommodating. Bless his heart.
We were relieved he didn't jump in the pool with us. InHe plopped himself down on a chair next to the pool and started having a conversation with us like everything was normal. I guess we're lucky that he didn't come out in his "birthday suit" to have a chat.
Just another day with the Phons.
