Only the most necessary


Only the most necessary

I assumed a pool was only for the very wealthy and got confused at all the pictures of swimming pools from America, so my friend who practically grew up in the US and still visits the states every year joked that getting a pool is very high on Americans' list of things they need in their life.

"They make sure they have a house, a bed, food, and then a pool"

Actually, where I grew up you were pretty cool if you had a pool. Not many people had private pools. Then again, I grew up in the northern US, so it's a little less practical for us to have a pool than if we lived in the more southern states, as we'd only be able to use it three months out of the year.

I'd like to believe that most Americans don't think of a pool as a necessity...but I own a pool.

However, a car is a necessity for most areas in the US.

In Canada (at least in my province) we just go to the nearest lake.

Its kind of status symbol for your family more so than a necessity. "Ooo! Look! He has a pooooool! Aww. Niiiiiiice."

@Karen Here's a translation for you: "De maskinpistolene kan dere bare beholde selv." :)
