I had a traumatizing experience at a wave pool once. Some chump had the bright idea to turn up the waves, and me being only in second grade at the time, didn't know how to swim to well. I swam as hard as I could to get to that stupid ladder to the side (instead of doing the smart thing, letting the waves carry me to the shallow end). Then I came up for air at the wrong time and inhaled a hearty dose of chlorine water. I did make it out, after a slew of coughing fits.
