Your worst moment in diaboloing
« on: July 17, 2009, 06:20:57 PM »
Two weeks ago, I started a thread about your best moments in diaboloing. Now I am curious as to what your worst moments are.

Last month, I was busking at a Street Performance festival in Cork, and I looked up to see if I had space to do a high throw. As I started to throw it, a raindrop hit me in the eye, I looked down reflexively,
and got a faceful of finesse.I had a huge burn mark under my eye.The crowd burst into laughter, and at that moment, a festival official threw me out, because I wasn't ''affiliated with the festival'', and took the money I had earned. :(

Try as you might, it will be hard to top that.

Everytime you get hit in the 'nads always feels like 'the worst.'

I've had 2 diabolos on seperate occasions in the tree and it too me ages to get them both down.

The WORST would be having to go to the eye and ear hospital after playing 2 diabolo combat (I'd recommend against it). The idea being like club combat but you're trying to stuff up everyone else's 2 diabolo shuffle. Anyway, one of my friends kicked one of my diabolos straight into my open eye - it was pretty bad and I couldn't see right for about a week but it's all good now.  :)

That must be the force of The Messiah.

One of the worst moments for me is every time I lose my success with 3 low... it appears it's just not meant to be. Getting hit in the nuts deserves a fair 2nd place, agreeing with Leo there. Other than that... leaving an awesome convention, getting a knot on stage without spare sticks, breaking your equipment, etc.

Heck, why do we even keep playing?! ;D
