It's HOW you say it

The boys have been spending a lot of their free time skating and playing hockey. Mendo joined them one night last week and after returning (from only his second time on the ice) I asked him how it went. He said he was surprised at how little he fell but conceded that he still had trouble with stopping. However, he told me that this method worked well for him:
"I went as fast as I could to the wall and then I would stop for sure."
I guess that would do the trick.
