    "you make me feel like a really strong man."

    I think he was slightly offended after I laughed at this comment. lol At least it was meant as a compliment (i think)!

    Not by a coach, but I was mentioning that my pros and coaches have told me I need to be softer - and i couldn't even finish my sentence because my father-in-law just burst into laughter. The idea of me as soft at all is cause for instant hilarity! Sigh :S

    "You can be a little more manly."

    - Was told this by my instructor when first learning how to do a swingout. Apparently I wasn't applying enough force/pull/stretch & release when going into the turn. :oops:

    After attempting a backward runaround: "You [me] are awkward and you [my partner] are boring. Let's fix that." He was just so deadpan that we couldn't help but laugh.

    Coach: You're like a *Russian word*
    Me: What's that?
    Coach: It's this type of fish that has very short memory.
    Me: ...

    Hmm...I recently got a 'Cirque du Soleil' and 'defying the laws of gravity' comment...and NOT in a good way! (More of a 'I have no idea how you're doing that, it's so awful you should have fallen over!)

    LOL! This... I hear the same type of thing more often than I'd like to admit.

    Something similar said to us one time, by a brand new coach no less.
    "Um, yeah, don't ever do that again."

    Said to me, after I totally botched a spot turn but managed to two-foot my way back into the pattern: "That was so wrong it was right!"
