Today my DarkMagic v1.0 fell in the line of duty. How do you cope with the loss of a skill toy?
well… I’ve gotten to the point in yoyos that I realize that it’s just a toy. I’ve dinged my peak (when it was still mint), and it didn’t phase me. If it breaks, I have others to use
Cope with the loss of the skill toy by, (if you are in the right place financially) buying another.
Run in circles, scream and shout.
Well when my DM broke i just randomly started laughing cause there was a huge hole in it, you know i dont even know why i started laughing.
and i usually start spewin’ out nonsense in tongues…
i feel ok because i know its going to yoyo heaven…
if you need taps tho, i can play it…
When a yoyo “breaks” I wouldn’t worry about it, because someone can always fix it. I don’t care if I ding my yoyos, unless their somebody else’s.
Well, I will split time between a Kickside and a FHzero.
Hold a ceremony, make a grave, a headstone, and retire that yoyo…
You have to laugh when bad things happen sometimes. It’s a great coping mechanism. Otherwise, you lose perspective and let things get to you that shouldn’t. Dinged metal yoyos are
cremate it ;D
Oh… Reduce, Reuse, and RECYCLE!!! USE its guts to further your playing!!!
But honestly, if it can’t be repaired, I’d take what’s useful and move on.
