My sister used to tell me that after swimming in the pool if I didn't wash my hair right afterwards then my hair would turn blue.
Whne I was young, my father used to carpool to work. One day he came home and said person x was retiring and that he would need to join a new carpool. Thinking this was a car with a large swimming pool in the back; I asked him if he would have to buy a new swim-suit.
Now this is really embarrassing but when my husband Dave was a boy of about 4 he watched a baptism where the baby was sprinkled with holy water and 'blessed'. Afer the ceremony, he sneakily dipped his hand into the holy water and licked it and from then on, he believed his wee was holy. BUT for years after when he went swimming, he would wee in the pool in the belief that he was blessing all the swimmers.
I used to think that an "in ground pool" was a pool that you had to go down into the ground to get to, like in a cave.
