12. The Swimming Pool


I like the “if it worked for Clark Griswold it can work for you” line of thinking. If you remember National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation you know the plot was Griswold expecting a bonus so he could give his family a pool for Christmas. Don’t skimp on the swimming pool, if you can’t do it right then spend your money elsewhere, that means no above ground, have to go in ground. Also, be sure you have enough cash for a changing room. Keep it stocked with bikinis and ill fitting tops for guests. In addition to providing a place to change these rooms are great for drugs and sexy time, two of the top two reasons to spend your money on a swimming pool.
