When the workday feels too long, you really just need a moment to chill. And there’s no better way to reenergize yourself after hours of paperwork than to take a quick dip into the pool. With this office desk from Staples, you won’t even have to leave your cubicle to get your splash on.

The Altra Furniture Glass Top Computer Desk is the office furniture of your mermaid dreams. Its sleek design makes it space-efficient, and it also transforms into a pool that fits you and at least four other friends. That’s according to the pictures from the product page, anyway.

All this functionality for a mere $121.79. And Linda H., a verified buyer, left the desk four stars, saying: “would recommend.” Talk about a deal.

OK, somebody probably screwed up the product’s pictures and dropped the pool picture in by accident. But we can hope, right? At least we still have the very real (and very practical) iPhone flask
