"Season"

I grew up in Illinois. We lived in a small town of about 2,500 people or so. One of the things we did every summer was go to the city pool with my cousins. We'd spend the whole day, almost every day there. My cousins' mom always bought them a summer pass for the pool. My parents couldn't afford it, but we got lucky. All we had to do was walk in and say "season" ( for a season pass) and we could keep right on walking through the building to the pool with our cousins. Really, we were always together so they probably thought we were siblings. The pool sat in a beautiful park with lots of grass and trees. I remember the smell of the chlorine and jumping off the high dive. Sometimes, we had enough change to buy an Astropop or snow cone at the snack shack when we were leaving for the day. This is one of my favorite childhood memories!
