As you all know, I’m an inventor. As an inventor, I’m constantly inventing things, like alt egos and new ways of walking and grammatically incorrect word sequences; however, occasionally-I stumble onto a brilliant invention that is so brilliant-it’s worth mentioning to all of you. Now that I’m writing this, perhaps what I’m about to reveal isn’t so much of an invention as it is a really fun way to dive into a pool.
Over Memorial Day weekend, I invented this pool dive called “The Halo,” which was accompanied by the sounds and spirit of Beyonce Knowles (obviously). Inspired by the audacious, authentically brave crowd dive (and subsequent crowd surf) during Beyonce’s performance of “Halo” in the “I AM” world tour-I ran towards the pool and jumped in just like this and then I surfed the crowd aka the pool like this
For the best effect, it’s encouraged to scream “HALO!” or “snap for the kids” while you’re in the air.
