Today I did a hip fall and was up in flash, but the rink guard was right there with a look of concern. "Are you alright?"
"Sure, sure, I'm fine."
This is not the first time I've had rink guards come over to me, almost in a panic.
Once I fell on freestyle and the rink went silent. I mean, people stopped skating talking until I told my coach I was 'okay'. Then she announced it to the entire rink and they restarted skating.
I used to think this was because I was a 'beloved adult skater'. Then one day I realized, they're worried I've had a heart attack or a stroke!
|I'm NOT having a heart attack!|
It's just a dramatic pose!
