Out of the mouths of Children-Barnes is speechless

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Tuesday night at our weekly Movement Analysis training led by Bob Barnes we hit the highlight of the season.

After viewing our first video of the night Bob asked a certification candidate to describe for him in as few words as possible the skier we had just seen. The intent is to paint a picture of the skier mechanics and style in Bob's mind.

Our candidate bobbled a bit so Bob jumped in to demo (in his usual dedicated, selfless and enthusiastic manner) how he would like to see it done in an exam-being the great trainer he is.

About 4 minutes later our host's 11 year old daughter pipes up-"I THOUGHT YOU SAID IN AS FEW WORDS A POSSIBLE"!!! The room goes silent then absolutely explodes in laughter and Bob is absolutely speechless.

Way to go Clarissa-you made our year. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] I hope Bob is never your examiner.

Knowing Bob well I am sure that he enjoyed the moment!!! If we can't find humor in things they are to serious!!!!

I LOVE IT!!! I came one evening to teach an aerobics class. One guy, an MIT geek, said he was exhausted. He turns to me and says "Can we just listen to the lecture tonight?"

Thanks, S&G, in as few words as possible, I don't know what to say [img]smile.gif[/img]

Bob, please join as again, you have been missed, and please don't spare the words.

Hey! Be nice to the geeks! Unless they're not skiers, in which case you can just let loose.

Hey! I'm married to a geek! Nowadays, that term is a compliment.
