If so, do you use it?
I ask because this year I "joined" my building's swimming pool. I really only did it because it's outside and, in these COVID times, I wanted to have some semi-private outdoor space to hang out and just relax.
I haven't actually gone in the water yet; when faced with the prospect, I realize I didn't really know what I would do if I was to go in. Apart from floating drunkenly down lazy rivers in various Caribbean and Vegas hotel properties I realized that I haven't recreationally "gone swimming" in a pool since high school.
Most of the things that seemed interesting to do in the water then seem now either less appealing or not feasible. For instance, there's no diving board, so that eliminates quite a bit right there. I don't have friends my age in the building, so I'm not throwing a football around. I suppose I could do that with anybody, but getting friendly with children I otherwise don't know would probably send the wrong idea.
I'm not going to be the guy who does laps and effectively takes away 1/3 of the pool from everyone else. Plus I have shoulder injuries that make swimming for serious exercise probably too painful to do for very long.
I could just stand there, in the water, but that seems awkward. Standing around doing nothing isn't awkward if you're smoking or drinking, but they don't allow any of that up there.
Anyway, just random thoughts. I do enjoy being out by the pool, though, even if not actually in it. It's somewhere new to do crossword puzzles or just listen to music through headphones (I got some good new ones, to make all this work-from-home more enjoyable), in the fresh air.
