HOW TO FLOOD A BASEMENT ON A DRY DAY

  1. Be a man.
  2. Go to the toy store with a child and a credit card.
  3. Ignore your wife’s exclamations of “have you lost your freaking mind,” etc.  Wives are always saying stuff like that.
  4. Ignore the distinct not-levelness of the back yard.
  5. Set up the Easy Set.
  6. Fill with hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water.
  7. Allow the child to get in the pool.
  8. Watch the low side of the pool collapse.  Oops!

Note: this picture is an advertisement.  That is not my family.  It can’t be, because the water that was once in our Easy Set pool wound up in the basement. 

But don’t worry.  Now that our one-day heat wave is over, it won’t be warm enough to swim again until August.

  1. It wasn’t all of the water. Just a little bit. Maybe 200 gallons. And only about part of that went into the basement. Besides, she was hoping it would happen.
