It's actually legit ice and sleet here. No car crashes but sidewalks are insane.

you should be happy you didn't slip and fall on vomit in the subway.

not that I've done it myself, but I came really close to this one time.

Epic fail actually.. One hour of ice skating with streaking past me. I bit it too many times to count.

Splits suck hard. I did one when learning to ski. Let's just say I walked like I was 80 years old for a few days.I should have worn my hiking shoes instead i wore fly looking loafers for the lady. Oh she had a good laugh.

in ice skating lessons: you fall purposely to learn to fall properly.

Lesson the First: Try to fall onto soft people nearby.

Lesson the Second: If no soft people are nearby, tuck and roll.

Lesson the Second, Addendum: Blades out!
