When I fall at the rink

Because I'm pushing myself to gain skills, I have the occasional fall.

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!
