You know what happens when you're working down the line? The rink cone gets in your way.
|"I'm going to eat your skate!"|
Today Miss Bianca wanted me to work on power threes. FO3, turn, back cross, back edge, turn forward, do over.
I get within 5 feet of a cone and my spidey sense--my cone-dar--goes off. I grind to a stop.
"You're supposed to be skating all the way to the other corner." Miss Bianca says.
"But...but...the cones," I wail. "They're always there, in my path...."
My coach sees a cone. I see this...
I'd love to skate around them, backwards, but I seem to be drawn to them.Cones have gravity. Like a black hole, they pull me in. If I don't stop I'll end up in the orange cone dimension like this poor skater.
Stay clear of the Cones! They're Evil!
