Melancholy Expected when Pool Drains…
In preparation for the “Blonde and Gone” benefit this weekend, The Blue House Lives has learned that 650 gallon pool that has brought so much joy during its stay on The Porch is to be drained this evening. The Blue House Lives sophomore Porch correspondent reported, “Tonight, the draining is intended to be a moment of reflection and remembrance.” The Blue House Pool has repeatedly been revered for its selfless ability to please residents on a hot summer day.
Jeff L. Horner, one of the Pool’s biggest supporters told BHL, “I think my fondest memory with that thing (Pool) is when Michael (C. Fox) came running through the East Wing gate and dove in dressed as a banana. Not only did our potassium levels rise that night, but we had fun as well.” The draining is said to be accompanied by a ceremony that will include sentimental music and flying doves. The festivities will be quaint, however, as only friends and family will attend.
The technical aspect of draining 650 gallons is a feat that Michael C. Fox believes that he is up to. He said that filling was much harder than draining will be. “It’s really,” he said as he became teary-eyed, “the emotional effort that is going to be tough. I stand tall, though, and am certain I will make it through this.”
There were early rumor that Britney Spears was to perform a ballad of commemoration at the event, but she has since cancelled due to back injuries sustained after an encounter with The Winner of the World. It appears that the family of the Pool has prepared a moving slideshow that will be played on a screen during the draining. The Blue House Lives has not received a screening of the show, but it was described to us earlier: “It will feature images corresponding to all of the fraternal moments. It is those moments that will live forever in all those who felt the Pool’s icy touch.”
The Blue House Lives has also learned that there has been lyrics and poetry composed for the ceremony. These will be delivered in front of the friends and family, and they will soon be published for the droves of mourners across the world. Tonight will prove to an incredibly poignant night. The Blue House Lives will have continuing coverage as the details emerge.
