We have to work on your moves

Micah-

We have to work on your moves.

We’re all out in the pool today, and your brother is completely fearless. He’s testing the laws of physics with each jack-knife, cannonball and tuck into the deep end of the pool. You, however, are repeating your timid bunny-hop onto the seated area at the deep end.

It’s common knowledge that the only way for an adolescent boy to get the attention of a young female in the scorching Arizona summers is with a stylish arsenal of tsunami-inducing dives. We might not be able to erase the fear that curbs poolside improvisation, but I think we can put in the serious work to have a couple of go-to moves to show all the other kids that you mean business.

I’m thinking a good pike, or maybe a twist… I don’t know, I’m open to ideas. The ultimate attention grabber would be to find a way to master the dreaded belly-flop without pain.

I know you might think this sounds silly, especially since my first attempt at a front flip in ten years earned a dirty look from your mother when she, and the book in her hand, were doused. That’s just it though- she looked. All you need is their attention. And what did she do next? She went right inside and made us all Spaghetti-O’s. Does that sound like the actions of an unimpressed female?

My front flip earned us that delicious meal.

You’re welcome,

Dad
