Take Time to Tie: If you don't tie your laces tight enough, your ankles will when given the "Floppiest Alive" award. Make sure that thier not too tight, othrwise the Advil company will over power Bop or Teen mags. To stay out of the hospital, be careful when you tie!
Walk before you Glide: Let me guess;you are a first timer looking for ways to impress your friends. That's okay. Try walking around on the ice and getting a good feel of the rink before you start. Be sure to hold onto the rail until you're sure you've got it. Keep your other hand level with your shoulder so you don't fall and hurt your bum bum.
Try AirplaneArms: When you are ready to impress your fellow friends, you still have to look a little weird because you need to keep your arms level with your shoulders. Either that or the band-aid company's might over power Advil.
Taking a Spill?: When you do fall, you'll look very odd if you stiffen and try to get up. First, get on all fours. Then, no don't bark, bring one knee forward and place both hands on it. This is so no one runs over your hands. After you push yourself up, your done, and none of your friends even saw you.
Tid Bit Note: Falling anywhere except your bum bum, could be very, well I'll give you a hint. Advil or Asprin? It's your pick.
