I remember being really impatient when I was waiting for the bathtub to fill with water. I would run in and check it 5 or 6 times before it was finally ready. The pool was another story altogether. I had to start filling that thing up at 6AM if there was going to be any chance of using it that same day. Not only did it take forever to fill but then it had to bake in the sun for 5 hours so that we didn’t die of hypothermia.
