Whereas it took three of us to pull the cover off of the pool last night.
And whereas the cover was caked with slimy gunk and winter debris melted together by recent downpours.
Whereas the cover was so heavy Hubby had to crawl into the cold water to get it out.
Whereas much crankiness ensued.
Whereas we dropped the end of the cover as we pulled it out, splattering stinky, sticky gunk all over our faces resulting in a nice poo sandwich for dinner.
And more crankiness ensued.
Whereas the gunk also splattered all over the rest of our bodies making us stink and itch and staining my lovely lime green Hilton Head T-shirt.
Whereas the nastiness dirtied up the pool that was pretty sparkling clean when we first peeled back the cover.
And whereas this is the eleventh year we have made such a mess.
I hearby declare on this sixtheenth day of May in the year of our Lord 2009--the Hula-gen's will pay next year for someone else to remove the cover, even if we have to eat macaroni and cheese for a week to afford it. Because macaroni and cheese is much better than a poo sandwich.
