Gratuitous Domestic Post (TM) - Llama-ette Division

So my six year old went swimming with some friends yesterday. When she got home, she was practically bursting with the news that she had jumped off the ten foot diving board. (She's quite the fish. The other day she was doing rudimentary flips off a low board at a friend's house.) But being the kind of girl she is, she felt she couldn't just leave it at that:

Yes! I jumped off into the air and started flapping my arms like a bird and just floated there until the lifeguard blew his whistle at me. Then I stopped floating and went down into the water. It was fun!

The vision of my daughter hogging the airspace between the board and the water while an exasperated lifeguard ordered her to get down, was about the funniest thing I've come across in a long time.
