And when I think I'm full of myself because I'm a better skater than the Ice Tourists, I remember back to my first time ever on public skate.
|Here's what I thought skating was like--I was an idiot!|
|Here's how I walked in skates the first time.|
|My first fall|
|My first fall after I got some speed--but no stops|
|And then my desperate attempts not to fall|
|Then one of the really good hockey boys lays|
down some riffs and shows me what he can do--
I vow never to put on hockey skates
But after skating for a while I felt like this:
|I think I'm going to love this sport!|
Bring it on!
Pretty much everyone starts on public. Be nice to the ice tourists, one of a hundred will love skating so much they'll come back and take lessons!
