I am in a science lab. It is filled with machines.

My diver is just standing still in the water.
She doesn’t want to wreck her dress!

She looks different from angles through the bottle
and I make her move like my brother when he is happy!

If I was a deep sea diver, I would like to meet an octopus.
I wonder how old a turtle can be!
