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.

Actually poor people are more likely to be obese because healthy food is more expensive. Anything bad for you is cheaper. You have to pay 5 bucks for organic lettuce but only a dollar for a cheeseburger

I really want a pool but over here you need to have a permit and a gate around even the smallest one.

It REALLY depends on where you live. In the South where it is hot a lot, there are lots and lots of pools in the backyards of regular middle class houses. In the North, it isn't common at all.

I had a pool, but it was a bit much to keep up. I'm pleased I do NOT live in a home with a pool. Anyone that wants one can have one, but I'm thrilled to not have one.
