I just heard a hilarious story yesterday about two Momzillas Who Skate. One of them has been skating for only a few months and is eager to learn, while the other has been on the ice for a few years now. The more experienced Momzilla works very hard to achieve new skills, and is eager to share her abilities with her peers.
Not too long ago, the two Momzillae were both skating without coaches. The more experienced Momzilla was giving some pointers - actually, trying to coach - the newer Momzilla skater. The newer Momzilla didn't really want the direction. However, she also didn't want to be rude, so she allowed the other skater to share her pointers. This continued to the point that the skating director at the rink had to ask the newer skater to please not let the other Momzilla coach her, as it is a legal liability and risk to the skating rink. The newer Momzilla understood, and more than a little relieved, agreed to distance herself from the advances of the other Momzilla skater.
Sure enough, on the next public session, the experienced Momzilla approached the newer Momzilla with her usual gusto for giving direction. The newer Momzilla explained that she couldn't accept any coaching or instruction from any individual not employed as a coach, as she had been informed that it was not allowed at the facility. The more experienced Momzilla said that she understood the conundrum. "So you'll just have to watch me from afar."
I don't think I need to tell you that this story tends to elicit gales of laughter. Perhaps I would watch Brian Boitano from afar to absorb the genius. To be fair, I would probably watch him from afar even if he was just sitting still. But an overzealous adult skater relatively new to the sport? Oy! Watch me from afar...
