5 things that I now know about ice-skating
1. It's not as easy as it looks on TV.
2. It's ice and it's cold and it's hard and it's wet.
3. The best way to stop is to slam against the small walls around the rink.
4. There's no way to fall properly. You lose balance, you take the shortest and the hardest possible route to the ground.
5. Learning to skate is a good way to make time fly.
