The Huxtables

WARNING>>>this is gross. Last week we hosted some boys for youth conference. During “host time” I took them down to the pool where we met some other yc kids staying in our neighborhood. I made a deal with my neighbor that he’d play roughhouse football with the 15 yr olds and I’d keep an eye on his kids. I figured this would be the low key job-relaxing in the kiddie pool. Everything was going swimmingly until it we went back to the big pool and the ever popular fountain. You know, the ones little kids always love to sit on because water shoots up and they think it’s great. Well this time it wasn’t great. All of a sudden, to my horror, there are brown pieces shooting up and splashing back down with the water in the fountain. We’re not talking about one, two or even three, think 7-10. Germ-a-phob that I am, I instantly grab the kid and sprint out of the contaminated water to the bathroom. After picking up another little treasure from the bathroom floor I take her back out to her dad and explain that we have a problem. I’m wanting to sound the alarm and clear the pool until it can be properly detoxed. Instead, the dad moves to where the huxtables have migrated and proceeds to pick them up one by one, store them in his hand and throw them away. UGH!!!! Next time, I’m playing football and swimming my laps at the gym.

  1. Oh my gosh! That is so disgusting, yet hilarious at the same time. I can just see you freaking out. It is for reasons like this though, that I try to avoid water parks at all costs.

  2. EWWW!!!!!! That totally should have been reported and detoxed! YUCK! I’m not a huge germ-o-phobe but I do have my limits. That’s just wrong. 😦Can’t wait to see you on Friday!

  3. oh that is so nasty. i think i just threw up. we were at the dollar tree one day and there was a trail of crusted poopies down one aisle. first off that is nasty. and second off, they had been sitting long enough to crust over with out being reported. i went straight to the front to complain!

  4. that is hilarious. im sorry you had to experience that. i would have freaked out as well. but ive seen more than my fair share of poopies in the pool. working at a waterpark for two years was not the best place to avoid that situation. but they really should have gotten everybody out and detoxicated it. gross

  5. ew ew ew, wash your hands a thousand times, I’m going to wash my hands just reading that story. I can’t believe the dad picked them up in HIS HAND! That is the reason I never visit water parks.
