A couple of weeks ago, I watched my 81-year-old uncle dive off the diving board, classic springboard approach and all.
I thought, "I hope I can still do that when I'm 81!"
Then I realized that, now at 51, I couldn't remember the last time I dove off the diving board using an approach. If I dive off the board at all, I just stand at the end and dive. Usually, though, I just dive off the pier.
I thought, "If I want to be doing it at 81, I'd better start doing it again now."
So I did. And I made Jack witness it with a recording:
Yeah, I need to work a little on my form. Keep those feet together. I'll be practicing over the next 30 years.
