Recently, my apartment complex has started planning community events and announcing them on multi-colored flyers posted on bulletin boards that I generally ignore on my way upstairs. But as I checked my mail today, one of the announcements caught my eye:
New in July! Midnight Swimming on Fridays!
I thought that was a nice idea, given the recent heatwave we’ve been suffering through. But then I read the fine print below it:
Pool will remain open until 11 pm on Fridays in July.
So I’m confused — why call it “Midnight Swimming” if it’s not actually open at midnight?
