pool drains. when i was real little, we would go visit my grandparents in florida every summer. they had a pool & in the deep end was a big black drain. my mom said it was silver, but i remember it being black. that thing used to scare me, & i would swim in the deep end unless there were other people in the pool. ever since then, i've had a fear of pool drains. if i'm in the pool alone, & it's super sunny out or the dog swims w/ me, then i'm a little better about it. i'm also ok when there are people around, but other than that, i don't like them.
