I Can Totally Do That

Triple salchow. Triple lutz. Double salchow-double toe loop.

I can totally do that.

Yeah, no.

Single jump. Figure eight.

But I could do that.

Yeah, no.

What about standing on your skates without falling on your ass?

THAT. I can do.

Do you ever watch ice skaters and go, I can totally do that. Or laugh when they turn a triple jump into a double…or can’t land a jump at all and fall on their butts during competition? I do.

The other day my daughter and I went ice skating. We tried to flow and be smooth and be graceful. Just like the ice skaters I admire (and also poke fun of).

Upright we were. Graceful we were not. The skates were ankle torture. I had to sit on the bench every three laps to rest my ankles.

We took pictures to capture our skills. Like the lifting-your-back-leg-behind-you-three-whole-inches-without-falling-on-your-ass. It was humbling. And eye-opening.

We were full of laughter and full of shit.

I now have a newfound respect for ice skaters. I look forward to more cheering for (and less jeering of) those little lovelies who catch air in the Olympics in Sochi in 2014.
