Talking Pools Again

This evening  the Platypus attended a home and garden show.  Among the aisles were at least a dozen swimming pool installation companies.  They each had an impressive array of brochures,  full color picture albums, banners and displays to entice people into getting a pool.

Not one thought to use skinny dipping---or even the suggestion of it----to help sell their product.  You know, show a woman from behind in the water and just leave off the  swimwear straps.  Nothing to offend anyone.  Just create the thought that you could swim naked if you had a pool of your own.

We have written about this topic before, in the context of spa / hot tub advertisements.  Somehow, live and in-person, with a salesman standing there to sell "suited" recreation it's more glaring.

Can't anyone dare to be just a little different?
