Finally I have answers for 8 yr old me

when I was 8 I got on ice skates. I went in the rink. I fell. I went in again. I fell. I went in a third time, and I fell.

I came out upset, sad and mad and a whole tumble of emotions. I said to my mother, “I don’t understand! I SAW MYSELF skating perfectly and then I didn’t!”

She just laughed in a “aww, poor kid” way.

So I’m 43 now. Spent the 35 years trying to decipher exactly *why* I couldn’t skate perfectly. Finally I have answers for 8 yr old me :)
