Every day at the pool I was flirting and joking with all the guys and I was constantly being teased and teasing back. There were about 5 or 6 different guys I joked around with on a daily basis and others that I joked with once in awhile.
One day I was joking around and said something that was misinterpreted, a double entendre. What I said I don't exactly remember, but a couple of the life guards were there and they took whatever I said in a lascivious manner. One of them remarked: "Ruby, get your mind out of the cess pool". "That's not what I meant", I insisted. "Don't deny it, Cess Pool, you meant what you said", was his reply. All of the other guys laughed, and teasingly called me "Cess Pool".
After that, whenever any of the guys saw me they would holler: "Hey, Cess Pool", or just "Hey Cess". I decided not to fight it, and embraced the name. And so, my new nickname stuck. I was Cess Pool the rest of the time I lived in Hawaii.
