I hate when that happens.
I knew I was going down. I knew that it was only a matter of seconds before the ice and I became familiar with each other, but the only thing I could think of was, "ACTIVATE YOUR CORE, SARAH! Activate your core!!"
Either it didn't activate or what did activate was deemed immobile by the pizza I had for lunch, but after what seemed like 4 minutes of flailing, I ate ice like it was a snow cone.
I laughed. Tara giggled. And I heard a few gasps from the crowd. All in all, I would say it was fairly magnificent. And somehow I managed to get up and keep skating.
I decided to share a couple of clips with you so you can hear about it. Also, please notice how well Tara skates. She is one bowl haircut away from being called Dorothy.
And after a few minutes, I noticed that my left arm began to ache. Here is Tara re-enacting my fall:
My left arm is now immobile and I am simultaneously typing this and eating M&MS with my right hand. Hopefully nothing is too wrong, I do so enjoy my left arm. But I am thankful that this happened on our last night.
