The Celebration at the End of a Coach's Day

Although I haven't blogged about it, I've shown some significant skating improvement. E.G., yesterday I actually had a real edge pull (on the left) for half way down the rink. A total Level 3 edge pull! And my three turns are big, and sometimes have a decent check.

This is the way I want Miss Bianca to act.
"I'm the most amazing coach! My elderly skater is improving!"
Instead, as she watches my improved skating she reacts like this:

So, I decide to address the issue directly. "You're the best coach ever! Doesn't it make you happy? When you go home don't you have a moment when you think 'I'm doing a good job with Babbette.'"

"No," she says solemnly, "I drink."

Yeah, right.

  1. I'm with your coach; I leave work and go home and drink. Currently I'm working with 5 & 6 year olds. There's not enough alcohol in the world right now...
