The Dada and The Kidling were watching the Olympic trials last week. When the divers mounted the 33-foot platform to execute their death-defying back quadruple layout straight pike tuck somersault gainer twist dives, with no baulk and perfect rip,* The Dada was understandably awed. The Kidling? Not so much.
The Dada: Isn’t this impressive?!
Alice: I’m not impressed.
The Dada: Really?!
Alice: Well… if they did somersaults under water, then I would be impressed.
No wonder she isn’t impressed by my yoga moves. This kid’s got high standards.
* I don’t have a damn clue what any of this says. Thank the blog gods for this olympic diving glossary.
