Madam Mim says it's 'butt shaped'. Well, that's some negative motivation.
Then she says, "Let's work on your inside 3's."
To my surprise, residual skating memory works. I recover my okay beginner FI3 inside a few minutes.
Then I'm directed to work on my checks.
First try, I haul the leading shoulder back, going deep in the knee as I come out of the turn and glide for about 6 feet.
On the wrong edge.
Madam Mim takes out her Marker of Doom and sketches out the turn.
"Perfect rocker," she says.
First thought through my mind:
|My three turn's crap|
|Oh, delight! I have a rocker!|
"Oh, good," Madam Mim says, " I think that means you're ready for back 3s. Let's start."
