Being the deductive person that I am, I figured someone needed my attention, and stopped.
|It was like this, but...not...|
Fake tan gone wrong?
I glanced at the kid; maybe 6 years old, hanging on the rope dividing my swimming lane from the rec area of the pool.
In that entire area, there were maybe 2 two more people; hard to tell because I didn't have my glasses on. But that kid had been hanging on the rope for a good ten minutes and she obviously hadn't felt pressed to move him elsewhere in the vast nothing of that side of the pool.
I'm not a wild swimmer. I'm slow. Slow doesn't create much in the way of splatter. But holy hell, her kid was in a swimming pool and HE WAS GETTING WET.
Clearly I was at fault.
So I said the only thing one should say in such a situation.
"Get over it."
I will be so glad when school starts back up...
