|"You talkin' to me?!"|
|Coach drill bit eyes|
I skate over and I start complimenting the hell out of the student, and sometimes the coach.
To a girl,I'll say
"Oh, what a beautiful dress/hat/barette/jacket/new skates/you're so pretty....."
or to a boy,
"Oh, you have such good posture/balance/power/edges/swing roll/three turn/smooth jump landing...."
Or to a kid who is very young,
"Coach X is such a wonderful coach, I know you'll have a great time learning to skate."
Then with a smile, I gracefully skate away.
