Students greet the teacher and start the lesson by asking him the correct way to dive. Teacher gets out of the swimming pool, stands up and gets ready to dive immediately. Students respond by clapping their hands.
Teacher prepares himself in a diving pose. Students look and wait patiently. Some of them become too nervous thinking that teacher might get hurt, cannot take the pressure, and then faint. But teacher proceeds with the lesson anyway.
Teacher starts the diving process. He bends his knees and gets ready to jump. Students hold their breath and start praying.
Teacher jumps off the rock and dives into the swimming pool. Students become so excited, they hold their breath for another second.
Teacher flips his body over in the air. Students cannot really see the movement as it is done in a split second, but they shout in excitement anyway. At the very same moment teacher exclaims, "Hey everyone! Look at those two boys! They have the same pose and expression from the start until now!"
Teacher continues flipping over his body in the air seven times. Students become so amazed and continue shouting in excitement. However, more of them fall unconscious (forgot to breathe).
The gravity starts to play its role. Teacher says loudly, "Here I am...!!! Later I want all of you to do the same thing like what I'm doing now, but with different movements! Do not copy!" More and more students fall unconscious.
Teacher 'lands' into the water with style. Students clap hands and cry excitedly. They say, "you're simply the best!!". Teacher asks for moral values of the lesson. Students respond by saying, "we should never dive onto the floor..", "we can never dive better than you, sir..", "diving is better than not diving.." Teacher concludes the lesson by giving homework; go home and dive anywhere you want (as long as it's not hard grounds) at least three times.
