I Won't Back Down
So last we left off I had 6hrs of sleep, a neck that wasn’t in too bad of shape, and a head filled with staples. A light breakfast, some hot tea, the appropriate phone calls to make sure people knew I was ok, and off to D.C. we went. I’m cracking up with all the people that first ask if I am ok, and then say, “well surely you aren’t going to do the backflip over the doll today...” Uhm, yeah, of course I am. What? Am I suppose to now put this “big” deal on messing up this one time and make it a major issue like I’m going to now be afraid? H^LL yes I’m doing it! I went out for the 10 minute practice and did one backflip marking that I’m picking soon enough. I skated the show pretty well, still too straight a take off for the sal (yes Mitch...same error), but TADA...cleared the doll with no problem! My wound does ache a bit when I land, and I’m icing my neck, but I’m in decent shape all in all. We have Philly tomorrow, and then a few days off. OH, and for any of you that was at the first show and not happy that I wasn’t in the autograph line (a person today in the line attempted to ‘dress’ me down for not being there the day before!!!) I skipped the line to get to the hospital. I felt some satisfaction when I told that person that fact and stuck my nasty frankenstein like bald spot in their face... :).
