"Impact Shots and a Nice Dinner"

 Impact Shots and a Nice Dinner
18. November 2011

"We had a team practice on Sunday; however, there were only four of us because some girls had games with their other ice hockey teams.  Coach Werner Kerth compiled the practice with mostly shooting drills.  We worked on taking quick shots and slap shots.  The lack of a goaltender did not make for such an exciting practice but we figured out a way to make it work.   We flipped the net over and shot either on the left or right side, whichever side coach directed.  At the end of practice, coach had us get on the goal line and push the net down the ice one at a time.   We did this for a few minutes, but thankfully, I was able to leave early because I had a dinner date.
I made plans to have dinner with my boyfriend, Michi Schmieder, and his parents.  I was going to meet his mother for the first time.  Not to mention, this marked the first time I was going to meet someone’s parents that didn’t possess English as their first language.  My lack of knowledge of the German language put a great deal of nervousness upon me, but once we sat down for dinner, I felt a sense of comfort.  I found it funny but cute when his mother tried to speak English to me.  I’m sure his parents also found some amusement as I attempted to read the menu in German.   We enjoyed a bottle of wine as we ate our meals and it turned out to be a successful dinner date with the parents!"
