COVER YOUR EYES KIDS... sometimes mommy and daddy aren't getting along, and then someone eventually tosses an olive branch, and soon enough sparks are flying like never before... but, that's not how it works in a pace line.
Look, I know you've been skipping pulls. Everybody in the pace line does, and nobody is happy about it.
Don't make it worse!
Don't wander up to the front and think, Well I feel pretty good now that I've rested I better make up for it by doing a monster pull. Doing a big, long, fast pull will not ingratiate yourself. It's not make up sex... it's more like, well... I don't know exactly... but, I do know you're going to tick everybody off with these shenanigans.
Roll through like the gentlemen or lady you think you are... take a normal pull... slot back in... and do it again and again and again...
Eventually, we'll forget and forgive your previous misdeeds. That's how to kiss and make up in a pace line.
PS... no, this isn't about you... 'cause I know you, you think it's you, but it's not you... it's someone else : )
