One dad’s creative way to relax in the pool this summer is going viral.
Dan Nitschke told ABC News he had just mowed the lawn on a hot summer’s day in Covington, Louisiana, when he decided to take a dip in the pool.
Still, he wanted to go one step further.
“I grabbed a snorkel and the inflatable and I laid face down. I put the snorkel on so I could kind of fall asleep,” he detailed.

Nitschke’s eldest daughter, 18-year-old Skyler noticed that after about 20 minutes her dad indeed had fallen asleep.
She was so tickled by the scenario that she took a couple of photos and posted them to Twitter, where they quickly went viral with over 31,000 retweets and 155,000 likes.
Nitschke said he has a word of advice for anyone else who wants to try this at home: “Just relax and enjoy it. And don’t breath through your nose,” he added with a laugh.
