Working on those skills

It's like pinball alley down there, turning sharply left at the bottom.
I knew I was going to crash.
But went anyway.
Rebecca's coaching still floats through my head.
Feet level, weight off the seat. Bananas.
Brake with one finger -- feather to control speed.
Don't look down -- look straight ahead to a happy spot.
Keep elbows bent, not rigid.
Ketchup. Ketchup. Ketchup.

I think I've got it.
