I went to the local roller rink earlier this week and boy was it a blast! I've been afraid to go ever since I traumatized myself back in '10 with Mick (of which I still have a scar).
I was surprised to see so many people that still really enjoy skating. Lots of 40-50 year old men with mad skating skills! There were also plenty of friendly folks - I was complimented on both my legwarmers and my necklace by two different people.
I plan to go at least twice a month, if not weekly. I still remember skating up and down my driveway all afternoon when I was a wee girl, and this week has only reminded me of how much fun it is. It's also re-lit my interest in joining the Roller Derby, which I used to talk about with my friends back in 2005. Maybe I'll finally make this dream come true (;
