Out of the Blue

Last week, Dance Coach looked at me and asked, "Do you still have your little hat?"

He means the Ice Halo, a piece of protective gear I haven't worn in months. He always called it my 'little hat'. It either dropped out of my skate bag or someone stole it, I don't know. It disappeared one day and I skated with a knee pad in a knit cap for a while. Now, I don't wear protective head gear.

Ice Halo
"It disappeared a long time ago," I say.  "Why?"

"Oh, no reason."

Really? After a bazillion days you just 'bring it up' out of the blue? Really?

Are you thinking of teaching me the open outside mohawk from the Foxtrot or Rocker Foxtrot, or whatever dance it is? The open outside mohawk that is the 'source of many amusing falls'?

Or maybe you're going to start me on back troikas?

Hmmm, I hear the words. What's the sub-text?
Am I being paranoid for nothing? Moi?


  1. Just want to say thank you for giving me the best laugh of the day, again ;)

    PS: head protective gear is important...

  2. I'm still waiting for that moment when I knock myself unconscious on the outside mohawk in either the Foxtrot or Fourteen Step, so that would be my bet.

  3. Have you seen the Ribcap?

    Could be just what you need!
