when you dream about not being able to blow your whistle correctly.
when you dream about anything pool related, for that matter.
when being in the hot sun for hours on end doesn't bother you.
when you feel weird going out sans your whistle and fanny pack.
when you have multiple bruises and abrasions from riding the slides.
when you always, always smell like sunscreen.
when you have horrid tan lines from your guard suit.
when safety-checks are the highlight of your day.
when you have no problem whatsoever blasting your whistle and yelling at someone through a megaphone.
when cleaning up messes of varying degrees and dealing with bleeding children doesn't phase you at all.
