So when that pond thaws and it's no longer Gretzky
That's when we jetski
If we function properly and wait long enough the ice will thaw and take on the form of water.
So if we do exercise patience and wait long enough for the ice to thaw we are at the point where we can no long skate on the ice like Wayne Gretzky but still instead of delving deeper into thought we just find another way to skim the surface of the water… a jetski.
Also could be reference to Gretzky at a young age. His father had built him a rink in his backyard that he played on for hours on end. Then when the pond thawed (as in he got old enough to play for bigger teams) he took off like a jetski.
