The Language of Skating

A  non-skating friend asks you "So what'd you do yesterday?"

You say:
"I was in program on freestyle when this kid kept getting in my way. I was wearing the belt and everything, and my music was playing! She wasn't even looking but would just stop in front of me to practice a backspin during my jump approaches.  It happened 3 times during my program until my coach went to her coach to get her to stop and the music monitor gave me a do over. I'm also flutzing so bad my coach is thinking of dropping that from my program."

What your friend hears...

Bunny Hops

I have a Bunny Hop!

I'm taking a poll.

When I tell you that I finally have learned how to Bunny Hop, which image do you want to see that represents your feelings to that:

a. Bored Man Yawning "I can do that"

B. Adorable Fluffy Bunny Yawning "I can do that"

C. OMG!!!! You can do a Bunny Hop! Those things are scary as crap!

Anyway, with the new boots I finally had enough support from the extra wide tongue to do things I never could before.  It took a coach about ten minutes to teach me, then I did bunny hops around the rink.

The next day I had bunny butt. All those hops can really make a girl sore!
