The Jacuzzi Was Closed: That’s Good Enough Reason

If you follow my Snap, you know I value the jacuzzi.

I didn’t grow up with jacuzzi access. In Philly, you didn’t get in (public) pools if health and cleanliness were priorities. Even the places I’ve lived in in Miami haven’t all had pools. But, in 2016 I moved to a building that did have a jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was CLUTCH the day of the cold, rainy 2017 Miami Marathon.

And now, jacuzzis are a requirement.

Weather permitting, the jacuzzi is part of my daily routine. And I’m usually alone if I show up early.

Looking around at possible move destinations in Spring of 2017, I always looked for the jacuzzi. And I always wanted to know the hours of the pool in black and white (to avoid security issues). We found a place that was fresh and new, had a bigger jacuzzi than our current one, and was available.

But we weren’t even looking to move. I “needed a sign,” as they say (translation: give me any pretext to justify this action logically, as I’ve already decided emotionally).

The week we made the decision to move, I was headed for the jacuzzi in the now-old building when I got my sign: The jacuzzi was closed for some unknown reason.

Done.

It was back open again the next day, but the damage had already been done. Poetic Aquatic justice, if you ask me.

Lesson 2: We are all emotionally driven. Sometimes people say or do things that “don’t make sense;” there’s a good reason for that. It’s not supposed to, and sense is not required for action. Sometimes people say or do things that “don't make sense;” there’s a good reason for that.
