"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

3. you can ride the water slides while carrying your shoes, clothes, whistle, fanny-pack, sunglasses, and cup, and not get any of it wet.

And here are
"10 Things Your Lifeguard Won't Tell You, but Wishes They Could"
as written by my fellow guard Breanna.
I laughed so hard when I read this because it's all true!
