Skating Bruise
My sister and I were talking off our skates, having just finished today's lunchtime skate. I told her, "I actually have a dark blue bruise, right on my ass."

"Wow," she responded, impressed. "You must have really fallen hard tuesday."

"I know! My butt never bruises when I fall on it. I don't remember ever seeing a butt-bruise before. I felt silly taking a look at it.... but it was so sore to the touch last night I just had to see if there was any mark. And there is, so deep on the cheek it's practically in the crack."

"Maybe you'd better not show that to very many people."

"Oh, I already showed it to everyone at work. Do you think that was a mistake?"

***

On a related subject, I'm testing my Novice Moves again on monday (for the second time). I had a great practice today, and I feel pretty prepared. I'm still not 100% consistent on everything (obviously, hence the butt-bruise), but when I do each move right I do it quite well.

Hopefully I'll be consistent on monday and hit everything as well as I'm capable of! If I do that I'll be happy... not to mention probably pass. Hopefully I won't let nerves get in the way. I'm feeling pretty confident today at least!

Damn. I work in the wrong office.

Good luck on Monday! :)

That line about showing it at work made me laugh out loud!!

I'm glad you didn't hurt your tailbone, and that's awesome that skating is going well!

If you can show the office, you can show the internet. That's my argument! :-)

You should post it to rate_my_wound!

What an interesting community! I'm enough of a freak that I photograph most of my interesting injuries.... but this one isn't shareable. Certain parts of me just don't get onto the web.

They don't?

Since this is kind of a performance do I say "break a leg" or will "good luck" suffice?

Either will do in general... but I guess it didn't work this time. Darn it!

Good luck! I'm currently working on Intermediate moves... but they're not good. At all.

Thanks. I didn't pass.... sigh. I did well in warmup, but had all kinds of silly little mistakes/bobbles when it counted.

Aw :(.
When I was testing my Juvenile moves, I fell on a three turn in my warm up. I had never falled on a three turn before. But then the testing was fine. Looks like you got the opposite :(.

I find that judges tend to believe that older skaters (even like, 16 yrs like me) should be stronger with their tests. There's been many times when I have failed but a younger person who has messed up more than me on the same test has passed.

:( I hate testing haha.

But don't give up!
I failed pre-juv 3 times, and then I finally passed!

Maybe you should skate with a pillow strapped to your bottem. :D
renniekins From: renniekins Date: October 5th, 2006 10:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I probably should. (:
