    (Many young couples with young children belong to my pool, and many of them ask a lot of questions. A man leads his 6-year-old son into our guard office.)

    Pool patron: “Excuse me, ma’am?”

    Me: “Yes sir? Can I help you?”

    Pool patron: “I’m very scared my son is in trouble.”

    Me: “Is he okay? Did he hurt himself in the pool? Are there any major injuries?”

    Pool patron: “His skin is all wrinkled and soft. It feels strange. Is it going to fall off?”

    Me: “Sir, that happens to everyone’s skin who has been in water for an extended period of time.”

    Pool patron: “So his skin won’t fall off, right?”
