Moving up in Rank

After the belt ceremony, I admire Pam's new brown belt. She says she has mixed feelings about it.

"It kinda scares me to be a brown belt," she says.

I can see that.

"You know, I said to someone that my white belt test was the hardest," I say. "But I think that's wrong. They seem to get scarier as I get higher in rank."

Dana agrees. "More is expected of us," she says.

"Now we don't just have to do forms, we have to do them well, and be an example to the lower belts," I say.

But what are ya gonna do?
