Writing Challenge – Dive! Dive! Dive!

Writing Challenge original post: Over To You, Ladies!

Xavier “I challenge @amazonv to write “Dive! Dive! Dive!””

So Robert Godden insisted this be non-fiction.

At first I thought of the little diver steeper. Like the one found here: http://www.incrediblethings.com/home/the-tea-diver-is-made-for-tea-snobs/.

But since I don’t own one that’s fiction. Damn.

Then I thought about, thanks to reddit, the boston tea party! http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/30be3y/this_is_what_the_tea_looked_like_that_was_dumped/
Imagine being a diver in that mass of tea!
Fun fact the reddit post was wrong, it was loose leaf not compressed bricks.
Sadly, I wasn’t there. Well, actually that is probably a good thing as they went all anti tea.

also XKCD https://what-if.xkcd.com/79/

Anyway

Fact …

Diving.

I have someone (many actually) I know who dive, it looks fun! I have never gone diving myself.

Actually I am not permitted. I have glaucoma. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glaucoma
Not supposed to jump out of planes or dive.

I used to pretend I was a mermaid in the pool. Jumping in and diving and swimming with my legs together, sometimes using game diving rings to keep them together.

Now a days there are all sorts of fancy mermaid things!

I wish i were better at sewing

or crochet

but mermaids don’t tie into tea, I don’t think I drank tea while I swam, I believe my grandfather mostly liked to serve lemonade. Unless we went to a fancy tea – then I could have tea in lovely china cups.

Dive! Dive! Dive!

It makes me think of action! Adventure!
FLUKE

A very fun and amusing book
I don’t recall it having tea though

What if i go off another direction?
Dive as in to the ground, duck for cover!

I don’t think I have done that often, perhaps when I played paintball.

Alas I have finished my cup of tea, Special Earl Grey of course as I am at my mother house, no diver in there.

Well hopefully at least you have had a fun run about the internet from the links above.

    I dived in your non-fiction piece of work.
    Unfortunately, you didn’t manage to dive into your tea but I am sure your palate did.
